Myasthenia Gravis is caused by a breakdown in the communication channel between the nerves and the muscles and is characterized by weakness and rapid fatigue in any of the muscles. This disease can happen to anyone but mostly affects women who are younger than the age of 40 and in men older than 60. Patients suffering from this face symptoms like muscle weakness in eyes, causing double vision or problems in face and throat muscles causing altered speaking and difficulty in swallowing. Many times the antibodies start blocking muscle- specific receptor tyrosine kinase that helps in the formation of the nerve muscular junction. This disrupts the function of the protein giving rise to myasthenia gravis.
