Abstract

Two conflicting views of autoimmunity picture autoantibody production as the result of either polyclonal activation or the stimulation of a response to a specific autoantigen. Here, Roman Dziarski summarizes the evidence supporting each model and highlights the inability of either model alone to account satisfactorily for autoimmunity. He proposes the consolidation of the two views into one unified theory.
