Autoimmune disease develops when the immune system defends the body against the attacking disease. A research team from the National Jewish Health has identified a trigger for autoimmune diseases like lupus, Crohn''s disease and multiple sclerosis.

The research team also showed that transcription factor T-bet would play a crucial role in the presence of ABC.
