In this study, we investigated costimulatory molecules on B cells in the blood and in the thymus as well as by TLR9 and IL-21 stimulations in AChR+ MG patients with or without immunosuppressive treatment and controls.CD80 and CD86 expression on B cells was increased in the peripheral blood and in the thymus of untreated patients. CD86 was further amplified by IL-21.

Tinnitus, the hearing of sound when no external sound is present, may cause severe distress and impair quality of life in 0.5-3% of the adult population [1]. Chronic severe tinnitus is often accompanied by severe insomnia, anxiety and depression, eventually resulting in suicide and requests for euthanasia [2]. For these patients, few treatment options are currently available and 20% remains affected despite treatment [1].
