Table 1 Colonization of rat urinary tract by U. parvum.

From: Different inflammatory responses are associated with Ureaplasma parvum-induced UTI and urolith formation

Number of rats positive (%) inoculated with log CFU U. parvum a

  1. a) Data was collected at 2 weeks post-inoculation, and is a combination of 5 separate experiments.
  2. b) Probability values were derived by G statistic, P values greater than 0.05 were considered not significant (NS).
  3. c) Both sites refer to bladder and kidney.
