It has been suggested that antibodies to the muscle protein titin may be diagnostic of a thymoma, but they have also been found in patients with late-onset MG. Antibodies to certain cytokines have also been detected in patients with MG and thymoma, and it is not clear whether these antibodies could be more useful clinically. The authors measured antibodies against titin...Expand abstract
