Urinary NGAL/creatinine ratios at 6 weeks and 6 months after transplantation according to the four combinations of donor and recipient gender. At both time points, differences between the four combinations were significant (a and b ; the Kruskal Wallis test). Posttesting identified differences to the male donor/male recipient group (c ; d ; e ; f ).
