PURPOSE OF REVIEW Myasthenia gravis is due to autoantibodies against components of the neuromuscular junction. Here, we analyzed the latest concepts of the physiopathological mechanisms and highlighted the recent findings about the immune-regulatory and etiological mechanisms. RECENT FINDINGS According to their target, autoantibodies differentially alter the neuromuscular transmission in myasthenia gravis. In myasthenia gravis patients with anti-AChR antibodies, complement plays a major role… CONTINUE READING
