Sabrina Sacconi, EAN 2023: The MycarinG study – rozanolixizumab in the treatment of muscle-specific kinase autoantibody-positive myasthenia gravis
Muscle-specific kinase autoantibody-positive (MuSK-Ab+) generalised myasthenia gravis (gMG) is usually more clinically severe than acetylcholine receptor autoantibody-positive (AChR-Ab+) gMG.
