Myasthenia Gravis - What it is

​Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a chronic, autoimmune disorder caused by a breakdown in the communication between nerves and muscles in the neuromuscular junction. At the junction, nerve and muscle communicate via a neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine.

In MG, antibodies block or destroy receptors at the junction, affecting transmission. This results in fatigue and muscle weakness.
