Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune disease that affects muscle strength by affecting the communication between nerves and muscles. With MG, the immune system produces autoantibodies that target acetylcholine receptors and block or destroy them which causes weakness and muscle fatigue. This test includes tests for Anti-AchR antibodies and striated muscle antibodies. Anti-AchR antibodies or acetylcholine receptor autoantibodies are proteins which target and attack certain receptors in the body. This significantly reduces the number of nerve impulses which can be transmitted between the brain and muscles.
