Dot plots of the salivary H OD values in the 383 study infants by survivorship status, birth weight, and gestational age. Genotype is indicated for each infant (black dots represent non-secretor [AA] genotype, red dots represent heterozygote secretor [AG] genotype, green dots represent homozygote secretor [GG] genotype, and blue dots represent unknown genotype). The gray line indicates the CART cutoff point for optimizing differences in death outcome. The H antigen value is lower in infants who died than in infants who survived (P<0.001).
