Myasthenia gravis treatment may include one or more of the following therapies:

  • Medications that help improve neuromuscular transmission and increase muscle strength;
  • Drugs that improve muscle strength by suppressing the production of abnormal antibodies;
  • Thymectomy, the surgical removal of the thymus gland (which is sometimes abnormal in myasthenia gravis patients);
  • Plasmapheresis, where abnormal antibodies are removed from the blood while cells are replaced;
  • Immune globulin delivered intravenously, which affects the immune system by adding antibodies from donated blood.
