Auto-abs bind to well-defined antigens in the postsynaptic membrane at the neuromuscular junction and impair nerve-muscle transmission, which in turn induces muscle weakness and excessive fatigability.

Paolo Emilio Alboini and Amelia Evoli collected patients’ serum samples and clinical data. We are conscious that there are limitations to our study. High-dose prednisone plus plasma exchange is the recommended approach for treating rapidly progressive bulbar weakness.

Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. J Clin Invest, 5 Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases. Discussion Quantitative analysis of immunoglobulin chain synthesis by B cells demonstrated that there is an excess of light chain production [ 1 ] which are then released in the general circulation. Patients with low anti-AChR antibody levels. It is yet to be clarified whether the early use of rituximab could prevent the permanent bulbar weakness, which constitutes a relevant disability in these patients.

Autoantibody-producing plasmablasts after B cell depletion identified in muscle-specific kinase myasthenia gravis. Distinct classes of trafficking rBAT mutants cause the type I cystinuria phenotype. Serum FLCs have no significant antigen-binding activity and, therefore, are not consumed in immune-inflammatory reactions unlike other molecules complement, immune complexes, Ig, and auto-abs that are used as biomarkers of disease activity.

On the whole, our results suggest that serum FLCs may represent a new marker of B cell activation in MG, which parallels auto-abs titer variations in response to B cell depleting therapy.
