  1. Values of miRNA’s are relative expression normalized to RNU48
  2. miR micro RNA, JIA Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, LN Lupus Nephritis
  3. aSE, standard Error
  4. b P-values based on a t- test comparing means of all different groups , NS, not significant with p-value >0.05
  5. cControls include fibromyalgia and the Juvenile idiopathic arthritis patients together and their values were almost identical
