HMGCR Abs (3-Hydroxy-3-Methylglutaryl-Coenzyme A Reductase) are associated with necrotizing myopathy that is commonly related to statin exposure. With the increased use of statins, there seems to be a higher incidence of IMNM cases in recent years. These risks can occur at any dose level, but are increased at the highest dose (40 mg). Epub 2013 Aug 30. 50, whereas anti-HMG-CoA reductase positive patients without statin exposure tend to be younger at the disease onset and have higher CK levels.4 A study found that anti-HMG-CoA reductase myopathy is more likely in the patients having type 2 diabetes mellitus or using atorvastatin (comparing with … ���]�mLת;� \��dYO �/ �ցon��g��^ޗ�φܾAr�ہ�[bډ�A^�a�r���9M�X��w�m٪�9�2����l�ҋa�Q:N�hog�Z/��)�^EAPPU�'"Z�'�lW+ Epub 2015 Jan 6.

Arbortext Advanced Print Publisher 11.0.3433/W Unicode We recently screened a cohort of IMNM patients for novel autoantibodies and discovered that some had antibodies which recognize HMG-CoA reductase, the pharmacologic target of statin medications. Anti-3-hydroxy-3-méthylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase antibody-associated necrotizing autoimmune myopathy has been recently described (2011). A subset of immune-mediated necrotizing myositis, anti-3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) myopathy is a rare disease that occurs in 0.9 to 1.4 cases per 100,000 people. Statins may induce a variety of muscle related syndromes including HMG CoA reductase antibody myopathy. While statins are an established risk factor for developing 5, 6Interestingly, the majority of anti-HMGCR positive myopathy subjects developed an autoimmune myopathy following statin exposure. Nicole M. McGrath, Clinton P. Turner, Isolated gluteal and paravertebral muscle weakness due to anti‐3‐hydroxy‐3‐methylglutaryl‐coenzyme a reductase antibody–associated necrotizing autoimmune myopathy, Muscle & Nerve, 10.1002/mus.25130, 54, 1, (150-152), (2016). Often well tolerated, these HMG-CoA reductase (HMGCR) inhibitors can sometimes cause severe muscle weakness and elevated creatinine kinase (CK) often labeled as statin intolerance or statin induced myopathy. However, an entity called Immune Mediated Necrotizing Myopathy (IMNM), a type of autoimmune mediated myopathy, has been recognized and characterized in patients with history of statin exposure where there is persistence of proximal muscle weakness, CK elevation and myofiber necrosis can be seen on muscle biopsy even after stopping statins. Anti-HMG-CoA reductase myopathy, an undesirable evolution of statin induced myopathy: a case report Anti-hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA reductase (HMGCR) myopathy is a subtype of myositis characterized by proximal muscle weakness, elevated serum creatine kinase (CK) levels, and autoantibodies recognizing HMGCR 1.

Anti-hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA reductase (HMGCR) myopathy is a subtype of myositis characterized by proximal muscle weakness, elevated serum creatine kinase (CK) levels, and autoantibodies recognizing HMGCR1. © 2019 The Author(s). Probable anti-HMGCR myopathy was defined for this study as positive anti-HMGCR, elevated CK levels, suggestive muscle biopsy findings with necrosis/regeneration or MAC deposition, and normal strength. NLM These usually have symptomatic weakness, evidence of necrotizing myositis on biopsy, and autoantibodies against 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase. Definite anti-HMGCR myopathy is defined as positive anti-HMGCR autoantibodies, elevated serum CK levels, and proximal skeletal muscle weakness (16). These symptoms improve after discontinuation of the offending drug along with normalization of the enzyme levels.
