Saliva 1 Not compared 1
Cell-Free Saliva 3 Not compared 32
Urine 1 Not compared 4
Cell-Free Urine 3 Not compared 11
  1. Three comparison groups were used: “All” indicating unique miRNA among all fluids, “invasive” for comparison within the invasive fluids (blood, leukocytes, serum and plasma), and “non-invasive” for comparison within the non-invasive fluids (saliva, cell-free saliva, urine and cell-free urine)
