Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a rare autoimmune disease of the neuromuscular junction that manifests as skeletal muscle weakness. Patients with the condition often have ocular symptoms, but it also frequently generalizes to affect bulbar, respiratory, and limb girdle functioning. Approximately 10% of patients have MG that fails to respond to current therapies and their disease is considered treatment refractory or treatment intolerant.
