Anti-thyroid Antibodies Tied to Specific Immune Profile in MG

Myasthenia gravis (MG) patients with antibodies against the thyroid gland have significantly more B-cells — the immune cells that produce antibodies — and fewer immune T-cells, a small single-center study in China shows. These early findings suggest the presence of anti-thyroid antibodies may affect the success of immunomodulating therapies used in MG and that patients with these antibodies may benefit more from B-cell-suppressing therapies, the researchers noted. Larger studies are needed to confirm these findings…
