Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an uncommon autoimmune disorder affecting the neuromuscular junction and manifesting as muscle weakness... MC can be differentiated from other neuromuscular junction diseases by the presence of normal reflexes, normal sensation, lack of autonomic symptoms, lack of fasciculations, and worsening weakness with repetitive motion. Treatment should target the inciting event and airway support.

Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a neuromuscular junction (NMJ) disorder caused by autoantibodies against NMJ proteins. Collagen XIII is a muscle-derived transmembrane protein required for NMJ maturation. The objective of this study is to explore existence of autoantibodies to collagen XIII in MG patients.Seventy MG patient sera and 61 human healthy controls were screened for collagen XIII autoantibodies by ...

This article reviews advancements in the genetics of malignant hyperthermia, new technologies and approaches for its diagnosis, and the existing limitations of genetic testing for malignant hyperthermia. It also reviews the various RYR1-related disorders and phenotypes, such as myopathies, exertional rhabdomyolysis, and bleeding disorders, and examines the connection between these disorders and malignant hyperthermia.

... is the major muscle of inspiration and its function is critical for optimal respiration. Diaphragmatic failure has long been recognized as a major contributor to death in a variety of systemic neuromuscular disorders. More recently, it is increasingly apparent that diaphragm dysfunction is present in a high percentage of critically ill patients, and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality.

Chloride conductance disturbances contribute to sarcolemmal dysfunction in type 1 (DM1) and 2 (DM2) myotonic dystrophy. Studies using muscle velocity recovery cycles (MVRCs) suggest Na(+) /K(+) -ATPase activation becomes defective in advanced DM1. We used MVRCs to investigate muscle excitability in DM1 and DM2.MVRCs were measured for patients with mild (n = 8) and advanced DM1 (n = 11), DM2 (n ...
