In many applications involving follow-up studies, individuals' lifetimes may be subject to left truncation in addition to the usual right censoring. Here we consider the product-limit estimator of the survival curve S or an appropriate conditional version of S. The asymptotic behaviour of the estimator is briefly described together with an example.
