Antibodies directed towards other target antigens were described in triple seronegative patients (e.g. agrin, titin, cortactin, ryanodine, voltage gated Kv1). Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease. This means it is caused by your body’s immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissue at the junction (meeting) between nerves and muscles. This causes problems in the signals that your nerves send to your muscles. Males and females from all ethnic groups can get myasthenia gravis, but it is …
