Urinary β2-microglobulin (Uβ2M) (r = 0.66, 95% CI 0.41–0.82) and serum creatinine (SCr) (r = 0.36, CI 0.02–0.63) correlate with uveitis activity. As Uβ2M decreases over time, from the maximum for individual patients, uveitis activity decreases. a, b Scatter plots for the % of maximum Uβ2M and corresponding uveitis scores and SCr and the corresponding uveitis scores for all patients combined over the study period. A linear regression line (solid) with 95% confidence intervals (dashed line) is shown. c The % of maximum Uβ2M for all seven patients (numbering corresponds to patients in Table 2) with repeated Uβ2M measurements decreased over the first 20 months for all seven patients with repeated Uβ2M measurements. d Serum creatinine normalized over the first year for patients 1 and 5–9. SCr was normal throughout the disease course for patients 3 and 4
