  1. Ref reference/comparison group for dummy coded categorical variable comparisons. N = 148 (SCID outcomes missing for 2 patients). Adjusted odds ratios are adjusted for all variables/levels listed in the table in a logistic regression model. 95% CIs are approximate Wald-based CIs. a Days since treatment start and SCID diagnosis: numerical discrete variable (range = 3–138)
