Alpha 1 Antitrypsin

This book offers a comprehensive overview of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, an inherited condition that leads to lung disease in adults and liver disease in adults and children and is associated with chronic obstructive lung disease in adults. While it is a rare condition, the mechanisms underlying the clinical manifestations of this deficiency have been largely clarified. Treatment, however, is available only for the lung disease that arises from the condition, thus necessitating continued research into new and alternative therapeutic solutions. The book discusses the biology of alpha-1 antitrypsin, protein misfolding and polymerization, and diagnosis and treatment of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and its associated diseases. It concludes with a discussion of rare disorders linked to alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and the role of healthcare organizations in the treatment of these diseases. Written for pulmonary clinicians and scientists, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin: Role in Health and Disease is a valuable resource that sheds light on this rare disease.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an increasingly recognized cause of morbidity and mortality. Over the next 10 years, deaths due to COPD are expected to increase by 30% and, by 2030, COPD is estimated to be the third leading cause of death worldwide. Research into the pathophysiology and management of COPD over the past decade has progressed immensely with greater understanding of the global burden of COPD, its pathophysiology, better understanding of the multisystemic manifestations of COPD, and, most importantly, novel and

A knowledgeable handbook with a patient's perspective for those afflicted with the incurable disease known as Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD). Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency (A1AD) is a rare genetic, incurable disease which causes the liver to not produce enough of a certain protein that protects and keeps the lungs functional. 100,000 people in the United States have A1AD and 19 million more are carriers for the disease. Since it's so rare, the information available about A1AD has been lacking

Abstract : ABSTRACT: Alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is an inherited disorder that may lead to early development of emphysema and also can cause serious hepatic disease. Because the condition is underrecognized, diagnosis may be delayed. This article aims to increase awareness about alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and screening guidelines that can help primary care providers identify patients early for better outcomes.
