Comparisons between CIN-positive (CIN+) and CIN-negative (CIN-) groups were assessed using a t-test for normally distributed continuous variables, a Wilcoxon rank sum test for non-normally distributed continuous variables and a Pearson [chi square] test for categorical variables.
Serum creatinine in CIN+ patients was significantly higher than in the CIN- group only after 48 h (Table 2), whereas serum creatinine [DELTA] values at the prespecified time points yielded highly significant differences as early as 12 h after exposure to contrast media (P < 0.001).
Cys concentrations in serum in the CIN+ vs CIN- groups did not reach statistically significant differences, including at 48 h.
