Table 5 The differences in various variables between UTI and non-UTI

From: Identification of urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin molecular forms and their association with different urinary diseases in cats

Parameter UTI (−) (n = 38) UTI (+) (n = 18) p
uNGAL (ng/ml) a 0.8 (0.4–1.7) n = 37 47.4 (6.1–48.2) n = 18 < 0.001*
UNCR (10−6) a 0.93 (0.5–2) n = 37 41.77 (11–86) n = 18 < 0.001*
NGAL Monomer (+) b 60.5% (23/38) 50. % (9/18) 0.457
NGAL Dimer (+) c 34.8% (8/38) 83.3% (15/18) < 0.001*
NGAL/MMP-9 (+) b 86.8% (33/38) 83.3% (15/18) 0.703
  1. UTI Urinary tract infection
  2. a Data are medians (IQR) and tested by Mann-Whitney U test
  3. b Data are analyzed by the Chi-square test
  4. c Data are analyzed by the Fisher’s exact test
  5. p < 0.05* indicates a significant difference
