Table 2 Relative severity of stress-related signs, compared to D0 (%)

From: Effect of l-theanine tablets in reducing stress-related emotional signs in cats: an open-label field study

  D0 (default value) D15 D30 Friedman
p-value
Inappropriate urination/defecation (n = 18) 100 23 (0–90)* 0 (0–44)** < 0.001
Stress-induced functional/organic signs (n = 13) 100 28 (15–55)** 20 (0–25)** < 0.001
Hypervigilance/tenseness/fear
(n = 31)
100 60 (50–79)** 25 (18–50)** < 0.001
Aggressiveness (n = 16) 100 80 (38–100)* 40 (13–65)** < 0.001
  1. A default value of 100% was set at D0 and the severity of signs was rated afterwards relative to this value, for each cat. A value of 0% meant a total improvement while a value of 100% meant no improvement. All values for each parameters ranged from 0 to 100 at any day. The values reported here are the median (IQR). *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 compared to Day 0 according to adjusted pairwise comparisons
