Myasthenia Gravis

     

  • J Palace and the Myasthenia Gravis Study Group (Univ of Oxford, England): 

    A Randomized double blind trial of prednisolone alone or with azathioprine in myasthenia gravis.

    Neurology 50: 1778-1783, 1998.

        

    Azathioprine given as an adjunct to prednisolone in patients with antibody positive, generalized myasthenia gravis (MG) decreases the maintenance dose of prednisolone.

        

    Combination therapy is associated with fewer treatment failures, longer remissions and fewer adverse effects than prednisolone alone.
