Blanco s Overview of Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency

Blanco’s Overview of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency: History, Biology, Pathophysiology, Related Diseases, Diagnosis, and Treatment is a robust introduction to topics associated with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD). Included are topics ranging from the history of the disease, biology, pathophysiology, related diseases, including the two major manifestations of the disease (liver disease and lung disease), and diagnosis and treatment. The book addresses the need for the amalgamation of current and novel concepts and practices in the field of AATD. AATD is under-recognized in the medical community and, as a result, it is underdiagnosed. The book provides increased awareness and understanding of the condition to improve diagnosis rates and enhance patient care. This book is an essential tool and reference, beneficial to clinicians who screen and treat AATD patients, as well as research scientists working in the AATD field at junior and senior levels. Presents the fundamental theoretical and practical aspects of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD) based on scientific evidence Provides evidence to show that AATD is a rarely diagnosed condition, rather than a rare condition Contains current research and future perspectives from Dr. Ignacio Blanco, a worldwide expert in the field of alpha-1 antitrypsin and lung and liver disease associated with the deficiency of this antiprotease Provides resources to current registries and patient associations

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 challenge for the field is to elucidate the role of each particular serpin in its own niche, and this will typically require examination of structure, tissue distribution and cellular localization, identification of partners or targets, and assessment of physiological significance via forward or reverse genetics. Examples of these approaches will be found within these pages. What then are the "big questions" or achievements remaining in serpin research? We would nominate (in no particular order) the precise physiological mechanism of
