Table 2 Distribution of animals grouped within Negative, UTI, or Struvite profiles.

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

Inoculum dose of U. parvum(log CFU)
Profile a 101 103 105 107 109 P valueb
Negative 10/14 (71) 11/14 (79) 9/14 (64) 6/14 (43) 3/14 (21) 0.012
UTI 2/14 (14) 2/14 (14) 4/14 (29) 3/14 (21) 6/14 (43) NS
Struvite 2/14 (14) 1/14 (7) 1/14 (7) 5/14 (36) 5/14 (36) NS
  1. a) Profiles are based on culture status and urolith status of animals at time of necropsy. Negative group consists of animals found to be culture negative and urolith negative at time of necropsy. UTI group consists of animals that were culture positive in the bladder and/or kidney but urolith negative. Struvite group consists of animals found to have bladder uroliths regardless of U. parvum culture status at time of necropsy. Data is a combination of 5 separate experiments.
  2. b) P values obtained by G statistic obtained by contingency analysis. NS = not significant.
