Ganglionic Acetylcholine Receptor (AChR) Autoantibody3,4

Slide 9

April 2012

I will now go into a little more detail about the ganglionic alpha-3 acetylcholine receptor autoantibody since this is the most commonly encountered antibody marker of autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility.  When this antibody is found in a patient with autoimmune gastrointestinal dysmotility this may be accompanied by other signs of dysautonomia outside of the gastrointestinal system. The antibody level often reflects the severity of dysautonomia.
