    Addressing unmet needs and updates in the pharmacotherapeutic management of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) and its complications

    Activity Description / Statement of Need:

    In this online, self-learning activity:

    Alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency (AATD), characterized by misfolded and lower function of the serine protease inhibitor alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT), is a genetic disorder resulting in the degradation of lung structures. Reduced levels of AAT result in overactivity of neutrophil elastase, which destroys connectivetissue within the lung and causes degradation of alveoli, reduced pulmonary elastic recoil, and airflow. Breakdown of the alveoli eventually manifest as chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD), and otherassociated complications include liver disease, which occurs in about ten percent of patients with AATD.The most common cause of death in patients with severe AATD is respiratory failure, which accounts for45 to 72% of deaths.

    Target Audience:

    The following HCPs: pulmonologists and primary care physicians; physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who practice in pulmonology and internal medicine; and any other healthcare professionals with an interest in or who clinically encounter patients with AATD.
