Immunoglobulins isotypes (IgG and IgM) for myelin basic protein (MBP), cerebrosides (CER), gangliosides (GANG) and cardiolipin (CARD) were detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 33 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), 18 with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and 30 with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Radioimmunoassay techniques were used to detect antibodies to the acetylcholine receptor (AAChR) in 164 patients with adult-onset myasthenia gravis. AAChR levels above 0.6 nM/l were considered pathological and were found in 67% of the patients with an average value of 58.99 +/- 125.02 nM/l (0.6-900.0). Correlation, with clinical functional status, the(More)
