Abstract:

Differentiation of systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SJIA) fever from other childhood fevers is often delayed due to the lack of reliable, specific biomarkers. We hypothesized that PD-L1 expression is dysregulated in SJIA monocytes and compared it to other candidate SJIA biomarkers.
