gMG (Generalized Myasthenia Gravis)

Overview

Generalized Myasthenia Gravis (gMG) is a rare autoimmune disease of the nerves and muscles that leads to muscle weakness. For many people, gMG can cause symptoms of fatigue and muscle weakness that impair the muscles used for seeing, speaking, eating, walking, or using your arms and breathing.

In some people with gMG, immune proteins known as anti-acetylcholine (anti-AchR) antibodies disrupt nerve-to-muscle communication by activating complement, a part of the immune system that, in healthy bodies, helps fight bacteria and other threats. In some patients with gMG, the anti-AchR antibodies activate (or turn on) complement, causing disruptions to nerve-to-muscle communication.
