Certain Immune Cells May Be Biomarker for MG Severity

Blood levels of certain immune cells, called follicular helper T-cells (Tfh), are abnormally high in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG)  who have autoantibodies against the acetylcholine receptor, a study shows. Study results showed that cells released inflammatory molecules and were linked with more severe disease, supporting their role as a potential biomarker for assessing disease severity and therapeutic effectiveness. The study, “Immune Skew of Circulating Follicular Helper T Cells Associates With Myasthenia Gravis Severity,” was published…
