BAFF and BAFF-R Levels Are Associated With Risk of Long-Term Kidney Graft Dysfunction and Development of Donor-Specific Antibodies
American Journal of Transplantation, 08/20/2012

They also suggest that agents targeting BAFF–R interactions may offer new therapeutic opportunities in transplantation.
