Presence and pathogenic relevance of antibodies to clustered acetylcholine receptor in ocular and generalized myasthenia gravis.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Clustered acetylcholine receptor antibodies (clustered AChR-Abs) have been detected in a proportion of patients with previously "seronegative" (SN) generalized myasthenia gravis (GMG), but their presence in patients with ocular MG (OMG) and their pathogenicity in vivo are unknown.
