Comment: Telitacicept (RC18) is a recombinant fusion protein that combines the ligand-binding domain of the TACI receptor and the Fc component of human IgG. It was designed to inhibit the signalling of B cell BAFF and APRIL as a mechanism to treat B cell-mediated autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) [2-5].
