Myasthenia gravis is considered an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system turns against itself and attacks its own tissues. It is a condition that affects the transmission of signals from nerves to muscles. In myasthenia gravis, antibodies block, alter, or destroy the receptors for acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, which prevents the muscle contraction from occurring. This disease is characterized by muscle weakness that increases during periods of activity and improves after periods of rest.
