BACKGROUND: Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation remains the only treatment for most patients with severe combined immunodeficiencies (SCIDs) or other primary immunodeficiencies (non-SCID PIDs).

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the long-term outcome of patients with SCID and non-SCID PID from European centers treated between 1968 and 2005.

METHODS: The product-limit method estimated cumulative survival; the log-rank test compared survival between groups. A Cox proportional-hazard model evaluated the impact of independent predictors on patient survival.

RESULTS: In patients with SCID, survival with genoidentical donors (n = 25) from 2000 to 2005 was 90%. Survival using a mismatched relative (n = 96) has improved (66%), similar to that using an unrelated donor (n = 46; 69%; P = .005). Transplantation after year 1995, a younger age, B(+) phenotype, genoidentical and phenoidentical donors, absence of respiratory impairment, or viral infection before transplantation were associated with better prognosis on multivariate analysis. For non-SCID PID, in contrast with patients with SCID, we confirm that, in the 2000 to 2005 period, using an unrelated donor (n = 124) gave a 3-year survival rate similar to a genoidentical donor (n = 73), 79% for both. Survival was 76% in phenoidentical transplants (n = 23) and worse in mismatched related donor transplants (n = 47; 46%; P = .016).

CONCLUSION: This is the largest cohort study of such patients with the longest follow-up. Specific issues arise for different patient groups. Patients with B-SCID have worse survival than other patients with SCID, despite improvements in each group. For non-SCID PID, survival is worse than SCID, although more conditions are now treated. Individual disease categories now need to be analyzed so that disease-specific prognosis may be better understood and the best treatments planned.
