Venn-diagram showing 1. the number of genes that differed between untreated patients with polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and non-PMR controls (left circle, 34 + 44 genes) and 2. the number of genes that responded to treatment with prednisolone in a given direction in patients with PMR only (right circle, 44 + 87 genes). The overlap of the two circles includes the number of genes which fulfilled both criteria 1 and 2 (44)
