Abstract

An increased frequency of antibodies to native DNA, thymocytes, and striated muscle was foundin patients with myasthenia gravis (MG). The prevalence of such antibodies lends considerable support to the concept of MG as an autoimmune disorder and militates in favor of major abnormalities in the thymic dependent immune system. There was no correlation between serum blocking activity to acetylcholine receptor protein and antibodies to thymocytes.
