Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) has been used to treat three female patients with myastenia gravis. No other immunosuppressive agent was used. All three cases responded favourably to ATG therapy. This suggest that further work should be undertaken in this field though the condition itself is extremely variable and this study was not controlled.
