Julian L. Ambrus Jr., MD is a Clinical Immunologist in the Division of Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology SUNY at Buffalo School of Medicine. His work with Interleukin 14 and patients with Sjogren’s syndrome has led to a new animal model for Sjogren’s disease, the Interleukin 14 alpha transgenic mouse, which has provided novel insights regarding early events in the disease. This work has resulted in the identification of the novel autoantibodies described in this issue.
