The expression of chemokine receptors on peripheral blood lymphocytes and thymocytes of myasthenia gravis (MG) patients was analyzed before and after therapy with special reference to the thymic histopathology. Before therapy, MG patients showed reduced frequency of CD4+ T cells expressing T-helper1 (Th1) type chemokine receptor CXCR3, with a significantly… CONTINUE READING
