  1. The given mental and physical scores were collected at screening by using the SF-12 questionnaire. No statistical differences were found between 5-year completer and non-completer in terms of gender, age, BMI, physical and mental health. SD: Standard deviation, IQR: interquartile range, BMI: body mass index
  2. *Fisher's exact test; ** t-test; # at the time of mobilization/apheresis; Physical/Mental health scores were only available for 142 completers and 96 non-completers
