G ] -- k 2 [ A N ] ( 2) The corresponding equilibrium constant for association is defined by: Association constant: Ka ~ kl k2 ~ ~-- [AB] [A] [B] [L/moll (3) Occasionally, the reciprocal dissociation constant, K d = 1/K a [mol/L] is used. The amount of bound antibody (concentration of complex, [AB]) in equilibrium -- the biologically most relevant p a r a m e t e r - is calculated with: [AB] = K a [A]-[B] (4) or [AB] = K a [A o - AB] 9[ g o - A B ] ( 5) The concentration of a complex [AB] in equilibrium depends on the equilibrium constant (affinity) and the concentration of total antibody [B o] and antigen [Ao].

But not sufficient for the production of AAA; tissue destruction caused by mechanisms other than viral damage does not consistently result in antibody formation. The most appealing theory holds that the viral-actin complex, acting as a hapten carrier, is responsible for the production of AAA. , 1976). The occurrence of previous viral infection or medication use thus seems responsible for the appearance of AAA in low titers among normal individuals. On the other hand, CAH patients produce AAA in the persistent fashion typical of an abnormal immune reaction.

Very rarely, a form of arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC) arises in offspring of MG mothers (Dinger and Prager, 1993). , 1995). Whether "silent" antibodies of this kind exist in other mothers with fetal AMC or with other developmental problems is unknown. CONCLUSION Measurement of anti-AChR is of importance in the diagnosis of MG; but their absence does not exclude the diagnosis. Their presence in patients without MG is rare, but usually associated with other disorders with increased susceptibility to MG.
