Correlation of serum B lymphocyte stimulator and beta2 microglobulin with autoantibody secretion and systemic involvement in primary Sjogren's syndrome.

Abstract

BACKGROUND In primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS), extraglandular involvement might result from more intense stimulation of autoreactive B cells. Thus markers of B cell activation could be useful in the clinical assessment of this disease. OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of serum B lymphocyte stimulator (BLyS) and beta2 microglobulin with… (More)
