About Generalized Myasthenia Gravis (gMG)
gMG is a rare disease with a global prevalence of 100–350 cases per every 1 million people. People living with gMG can experience a variety of symptoms, including severe muscular weakness of the muscles of respiration, double vision, drooping eyelids, and difficulty swallowing, chewing and talking.2
In gMG, pathogenic autoantibodies can impair synaptic transmission at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) by targeting specific proteins on the post-synaptic membrane. This disrupts the ability of the nerves to stimulate the muscle and results in a weaker contraction.
