Myasthenia gravis is the best-understood autoimmune disorder, and its intense investigation has provided insights into the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease in general and the basic mechanisms of synaptic transmission. The papers in this volume report the latest research findings on the mechanisms of disease, diagnosis, and treatment of myasthenia gravis and related diseases. Other papers examine the advances in knowledge about the physiology, biochemistry, genetics, and the structure of the neuromuscular junction as well as advances in the immunology of pre- and postsynaptic disorders of the junction. Papers also discuss the clinical management of myasthenia gravis and related disorders.
