About alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1) is a genetic (inherited) condition. Alpha-1 may result in serious lung disease in adults and/or liver disease at any age. Alpha-1 occurs when there is a lack of a protein in the blood called alpha-1 antitrypsin, or AAT. AAT, the alpha-1 protein, is mainly produced by the liver. The main function of AAT is to protect the lungs from inflammation caused by infection and inhaled irritants.
