Table 3 Comparison of the EMST scores in patients with proteinuria 0.5 ~ 1.0 g/24 h

From: Urinary kidney injury molecule-1 is related to pathologic involvement in IgA nephropathy with normotension, normal renal function and mild proteinuria

Variable Without elevated urinary KIM-1/Cr (n = 19) With elevated urinary KIM-1/Cr (n = 12) P value
Mesangial hypercellularity (M0/M1) 17/2 8/4 0.174
Segmental glomerulosclerosis (S0/S1) 15/4 11/1 0.624
Endocapillary hypercellularity (E0/E1) 17/2 9/3 0.350
Tubular atrophy/interstitial fibrosis (T0/T1/T2) 19/0/0 9/3/0 0.049*
  1. *Being statistically significant. Since there was no patient with T2 in two groups, distribution of the variable of tubular atrophy/interstitial fibrosis was compared by chi-square test.
