Myasthenia Gravis

What is myasthenia gravis?

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic disease characterised by fluctuating levels of muscle weakness.It is uncommon, affecting only 15 per 100,000 individuals in china, and although it can be a very serious condition, 90 per cent of patients live a near-normal life while continuing medical treatment.
Myasthenia gravis most commonly affects the muscles that control eye and eyelid movement, facial expression, chewing, swallowing and talking, and the arms and legs (see myasthenia gravis - symptoms). Less often, the muscles involved in breathing may be affected.The muscle weakness is usually made worse by physical activity and improved by rest.

 

What causes MG?

MG is the result of a selective overactivity of the body's immune system in which patients produce antibodies against a particular target in their own body. Antibodies are the specialised types of protein made by the immune system in response, normally, to intrusion of a foreign body such as a virus.
In MG however the protein being attacked is a normal component of the body, which is therefore being attacked by its own immune system. This is what is termed an 'autoimmune disease'.
