  1. We did not find significant differences between DO vs. IT (#), Dropout vs. NT (##) or any of the three groups (###). Continuous variables were analyzed using Kruskal-Wallis, ordinal-scaled variables were analyzed using Fisher’s exact and Chi square test. Abbreviations are explained in the text.
