Showing All Ongoing MGNet Studies


Designed to better understand disease characteristics and identify treatment predictive and responsive biomarkers for myasthenia gravis. A total of 300-400 participants with confirmed diagnosis of myasthenia gravis are expected to be enrolled in the study.

Study personnel will perform broad outreach via social media, patient advocacy groups, academic institutions to identify subjects with MUSK myasthenia who will be willing to provide verification of laboratory diagnosis, medical and family history, and a saliva sample. Subjects will be able to contact the study personnel by website, email, phone, and mail. Once inclusion criteria are met, saliva collection kit will be mailed with a return mailer. Samples will be stored in the GW biorepository until the study is complete. Saliva will then be shipped to NIH after an appropriate material transfer agreement is approved.
