Mayo Clinic-led research supports an optimized diagnostic approach that incorporates autoantibody profiles to screen for and confirm presence of myasthenia gravis (MG) and Lambert-Eaton syndrome (LES).
Our first-line MG and LES evaluation examines levels of acetylcholine receptor binding antibodies (AChR-Bi). Utilizing a unique human muscle reagent, in which live cells mimic the neuromuscular junction where antibody interaction occurs, this test enables the highest testing sensitivity by providing the lowest cut-off values of receptor binding antibodies. If positive, confirmatory testing measures levels of acetylcholine receptor modulating antibodies (AChR-Mo). In cases where AChR-Bi antibodies are not found, testing automatically reflexes to muscle-specific kinase (MuSK) antibody testing.
