Abstract

B cells are known to play a key role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease. B lymphocyte activating factor (BAFF), a member of TNF family, promotes autoantibody production by increasing B cell survival and proliferation. Serum BAFF concentrations have been found to be increased in systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjogren's syndrome
