Table 4 Mean ± SD IL-10 concentrations with respect to antibiotic treatment and E. coli carriage

From: Elevated urine IL-10 concentrations associate with Escherichia coli persistence in older patients susceptible to recurrent urinary tract infections

  Condition Average IL-10 Concentration (pg/ml) ANOVA P-values
All rUTI Patients (n = 30) No Antibiotics 7.7 ± 15.4 0.85
Antibiotics 8.0 ± 13.6
No E. coli 6.4 ± 12.2 0.56  
<  105 CFU/ml 7.3 ± 10.1 0.21b
≥ 105 CFU/ml 10.5 ± 20.8 0.04*
Patients without complicated urinary tract historya (n = 11) No E. coli 3.6 ± 8.2 0.3  
<  105 CFU/ml 6.0 ± 10.3 0.05b
≥ 105 CFU/ml 19.3 ± 27.5 0.00002*
