  1. Abbreviations: BMI body mass index, CHESS Cost of Haemophilia across Europe – a Socioeconomic Survey, PS propensity score
  2. aPatients with current inhibitors were matched to patients who had never developed an inhibitor based on demographics (age, BMI, race) and comorbidity status using propensity scores stratified by hemophilia type. Matching was performed using a preset caliper size of 0.035 to maintain the maximum sample size using the smallest caliper width
  3. bP-values were derived from a paired t-test or Wilcoxon signed rank test for continuous post-match variables, and the McNemar’s test or exact McNemar’s test for categorical variables; p < .05 indicates statistical significance
