        Granzyme B is the toxic chemical that is released and is produced by our different types of T cells, when they are killing foreign invaders including bacteria, viruses, and cancer cells. Unfortunately the granzyme B that they release when they kill is toxic to our own cells and collagen. Granzyme B can generate autoantigens that can cause the immune cells to recognize their own cells as “foreign,” and this can lead to the development of autoimmune diseases like lupus.
