Much is known about the pathogenesis of MG. This information has provided a rational basis for treatment of the disease, which is very effective. On the other hand, present treatments are limited by significant adverse effects. Our knowledge of pathogenesis also provides clues for the development of new, effective, but less toxic treatments. In addition, knowledge of the autoimmune mechanisms in MG may be useful in devising better treatments for the many human autoimmune diseases that are less well understood.
