Table 3 Parameters with significant differences between the groups with or without urine NGAL NGAL/MMP-9 complex present

From: The different molecular forms of urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin present in dogs with urinary diseases

Parameter Complex (+)(n = 55) Complex (−)(n = 26) *p
uNGAL (ng/mL) 16.973 (33.52) 18.697 (17.07) 0.022
BUN (mmol/L) 20.71 (34.99) 7.5 (6.6) <0.001
Creatinine (μmol/L) 185.64 (203.32) 114.92 (53.04) 0.001
Urine RBC (/μL) 150 (225) 0 (31.25) <0.001
Urine WBC (/μL) 25 (500) 0 (100) 0.018
  1. The Mann-Whitney T test was used and the median (IQR) is presented. *p <0.05 indicates a significant difference. Complex (+): with NGAL/MMP9 complex; Complex (-): without NGAL/MMP9 complex.
  2. BUN: blood urine nitrogen; RBC: Red blood cell; WBC: white blood cell; NGAL: neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin; MMP9: Matrix metallopeptidase 9.
