Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1) is a genetic (inherited) condition – it is passed from parents to their children through their genes. Alpha-1 may result in serious lung disease in adults and/or liver disease at any age.
New clinical recommendations have been published to guide doctors and other healthcare providers on how to properly diagnose and treat Alphas.
Alpha-1 Foundation representatives traveled to The White House this week to advocate better forms of detection and treatment for Alphas.
Research involving the delivery of gene therapy into the lungs of mice may one day improve the treatment of Alpha-1.
The White House's Precision Medicine Initiative may speed development of better treatments for Alpha-1.
