Recommended for initial investigation of patients presenting at less than age 20 with a defect of neuromuscular transmission. Seropositivity distinguishes congenital (i.e., genetic) MG from acquired MG. Seronegativity does not exclude the diagnosis of autoimmune MG. A minority of patients lacking detectable AChR antibodies have the recently discovered muscle-specific receptor tyrosine kinase (MuSK) antibodies. MuSK antibody testing is available on request.
Muscle AChR Binding Ab: <=0.02 nmol/L; Muscle AChR Modulating Ab: 0 - 20%.
