Urinary NGAL Ratio Is Not a Sensitive Biomarker for Monitoring Acute Tubular Injury in Kidney Transplant Patients: NGAL and ATI in Renal Transplant Patients
Correlation of uNGAL ratios to the different donor/recipient gender combinations.
Gender combinations donor/recipient
NGAL in 6-week samplesa (ng/g)
NGAL in 6-month samplesb (ng/g)
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).
