Henry J. Kaminski and Linda Kusner Serve as Co-Editors of Third Edition of "Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders”

Clinicians and scientists in search of a common resource for understanding the achievements in clinical, translational, and basic sciences of neuromuscular transmission disorders have a new option at their disposal. George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences professors Henry J. Kaminski, MD, chair of the Department of Neurology and Meta Amalia Neumann Professor of Neurology and Linda Kusner, PhD, associate professor of pharmacology and physiology, serve as co-editors of the newly published third edition of the reference book, “Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders.”

The book, printed by Spring International Publishing, highlights the evolved understanding of the clinical presentation of muscle-specific receptor tyrosine kinase (MuSK) related myasthenia gravis and identification of potential new antigens, as well as the development of treatment guidelines by groups in Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, and an international consortium.

“Our knowledge of myasthenia gravis and similar neuromuscular transmission disorders is expanding,” said Kaminski. “This book has served as an invaluable resource for the last 15 years for meeting the needs of the clinicians who treat patients with myasthenia gravis and the scientists researching the disorder. The third edition is the best yet.”
