Non-radioactive serological diagnosis of myasthenia gravis and clinical features of patients from Tianjin, China.
PURPOSE: To establish non-radioactive assays for detection of antibodies (Abs) to the acetylcholine receptor (AChR) and to muscle specific kinase (MuSK). To show that the assays can be used in Tianjin for testing patients with MG. METHOD: AChR and MuSK Abs in 51 Chinese MG patients' sera were tested in Oxford, UK, using the conventional radioimmunoprecipitation assay (RIPA), a recently described cell-based assay (CBA), and a new non-radioactive fluorescence immunoprecipitation assay (FIPA) wh...Expand abstract
