Treatment of juvenile myasthenia gravis.

Juvenile myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune disease, which has made it difficult to collect data from prospective randomized controlled trials to evaluate the efficacy and results of different treatments. Although there are differences between the juvenile myasthenia gravis and that of the adult, the data provided by some researches in adults in the treatment of juvenile myasthenia gravis have been used. The different therapeutic options will be evaluated, with the different evidences that sustain it an...


Molecular profiling of thymoma with myasthenia gravis: Risk factors of developing myasthenia gravis in thymoma patients.

Thymoma is a rare epithelial tumor arising from the thymus in the anterior mediastinum. Nearly 50% of patients with thymoma develop myasthenia gravis, which is an indication of a poor long-term prognosis. Here, we identified specific and effective molecular markers for predicting in the development of myasthenia gravis patients with thymoma.

Myasthenia gravis: Historical achievements and the "golden age" of clinical trials.

Since the death of Chief Opechankanough >350 years ago, the myasthenia gravis (MG) community has gained extensive knowledge about MG and how to treat it. This review highlights key milestones in the history of treatment and discusses the current "golden age" of clinical trials. Although originally thought by many clinicians to be a disorder of hysteria and fluctuating weakness without observable cause, MG is one the most understood autoimmune neurologic disorders. However, studying it in clinical trials h...


Clinical analysis of Chinese anti-LRP4 antibodies in patients with myasthenia gravis.

Low density lipoprotein receptor-associated protein 4 (LRP4) autoantibodies have recently been detected in myasthenia gravis (MG), but little is known about the clinical characteristics associated with this serological type. In this study, the clinical features of Chinese patients with anti-LRP4 antibody-positive MG were characterized.

Factors Affecting Generalization of Ocular Myasthenia Gravis in Patients with Positive Acetylcholine Receptor Antibody.

A case of thymoma in myasthenia gravis: Successful outcome after thymectomy.

Thymic abnormalities occur as hyperplasia and thymoma. Myasthenia gravis is commonly present in thymoma. Thymectomy possesses risk due to anatomical proximity with vital thoracic structures and myasthenia crisis.

Analysis of electrooculography signals for the detection of Myasthenia Gravis.

A precursor to more severe forms of Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is ocular MG (OMG) in which the MG symptoms are localized to the eyes. Current MG diagnostic methods are often invasive, painful, and not always specific. The objective of the proposed work was to extract quantifiable features from electrooculography (EOG) signals recorded around the eyes and develop an alternative non-invasive screening method for detecting MG.

Association between MuSK antibody concentrations and the Myasthenia Gravis Composite Score in three patients: A marker of relapse?

Muscle-specific tyrosine kinase (MuSK) autoantibody related myasthenia gravis is characterized by bulbar and respiratory manifestations, a poor response to anticholinergics and a generally good response to plasma exchange and rituximab. It is not known if MuSK-Ab levels could be used to predict the clinical course.

Quality of Life of Myasthenia Gravis Patients in Regard to Epidemiological and Clinical Characteristics of the Disease.

Myasthenia gravis (MG) affects overall quality of life (QoL). The aim of the research was to evaluate QoL in patients suffering from MG in regard to epidemiological and clinical factors of the disease.

Outcomes After Transcervical Thymectomy for Ocular Myasthenia Gravis: A Retrospective Cohort Study With Inverse Probability Weighting.

The benefit of thymectomy in reducing requirement for corticosteroids, symptom severity, need for immunosuppression, and hospitalization rates in patients with seropositive generalized myasthenia has recently been established. It is unclear whether this benefit applies to patients with myasthenia and purely ocular manifestations (ocular myasthenia gravis [OMG]).

Cross-Sectional Analysis of the Myasthenia Gravis Patient Registry: Disability and Treatment.

The Myasthenia Gravis (MG) Patient Registry (MGR) is a voluntary, patient-submitted database dedicated to improve understanding of care/burden of MG.

Long-term efficacy and safety of eculizumab in Japanese patients with generalized myasthenia gravis: A subgroup analysis of the REGAIN open-label extension study.

The terminal complement inhibitor eculizumab was shown to improve myasthenia gravis-related symptoms in the 26-week, phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled REGAIN study (NCT01997229). In this 52-week sub-analysis of the open-label extension of REGAIN (NCT02301624), eculizumab's efficacy and safety were assessed in 11 Japanese and 88 Caucasian patients with anti-acetylcholine receptor antibody-positive refractory generalized myasthenia gravis. For patients who had received placebo during REGAI...

Factors Associated with Acute Exacerbations of Myasthenia Gravis.

The etiology of acute exacerbations of myasthenia gravis (MG) is not well understood and further characterization can lead to improved preventative measures. This study aims to characterize factors contributing to MG exacerbations.

Myasthenia gravis and specific immunotherapy: monoclonal antibodies.

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an acquired autoimmune disease affecting the postsynaptic membrane of neuromuscular junctions and characterized by antibody-mediated T cell dependence and complement involvement. Cholinesterase inhibitors (e.g., pyridostigmine bromide), glucocorticoids, and azathioprine are currently recommended as first-line treatments for MG, though they have limitations, including potential toxicity and ineffectiveness in patients with refractory MG. In recent years, owing to an increasing under...

A Case of Triple-Negative Myasthenia Gravis Lambert-Eaton Overlap Syndrome With Negative Agrin and LRP-4 Antibodies.

Exosomes derived from statin-modified bone marrow dendritic cells increase thymus-derived natural regulatory T cells in experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis.

The thymus plays an essential role in the pathogenesis of myasthenia gravis (MG). In patients with MG, natural regulatory T cells (nTreg), a subpopulation of T cells that maintain tolerance to self-antigens, are severely impaired in the thymuses. In our previous study, upregulated nTreg cells were observed in the thymuses of rats in experimental autoimmune myasthenia gravis after treatment with exosomes derived from statin-modified dendritic cells (statin-Dex).
