Management of Patients With Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Associated Emphysema

All patients who suffer from this disease are followed every 6 months during a 5 years period. FEV1 decline is the primary endpoint. Quality of life assessed using the Saint George's Respiratory Questionary is recorded too.

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Genetic Causes and Progression of Cholestatic Liver Diseases (LOGIC)

Cholestasis is a rare condition that involves a reduction or obstruction of bile flow from the liver to the small intestine. When bile flow is hindered, a waste product pigment called bilirubin can escape into the bloodstream and build up to harmful levels. This may lead to the easily recognizable ...

Phase N/A

Alpha-1 Foundation Research Registry

The Registry was established in 1997 by the Alpha-1 Foundation to facilitate research initiatives and promote the development of improved treatments and a cure for Alpha-1. Located at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston, the Registry employs procedures that ensure the most stringent confidentiality of participants. The ...

Phase N/A

Alpha-1 Coded Testing(ACT) Study

Genetic testing for alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency is sometimes delayed despite established testing indications. All genetic tests have risks and possible benefits. The ACT study evaluates the population demographics, reasons for testing, and outcomes through a confidential testing program. Co-morbidities of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency other than lung and liver disease are ...

Phase N/A

The Impact of Delayed Diagnosis of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency

The study protocol proposes to assess participants' clinical status based on the results of spirometry tests that are performed by the patient's managing physician as a routine part of clinical care of individuals with AATD within +/- 6 months of the initial diagnosis, subjects' St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) at ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Discontinuation of Vitamin K Antagonists on the Rate of Elastin Degradation

Background: Elastin is a unique protein providing elasticity, resilience and deformability to dynamic tissues, such as lungs and vasculature. Elastin fibers are characterized by their high affinity for calcium. However, calcified elastin is more prone to the degrading effects of proteases and, in turn, partially degraded elastin has an even ...

Phase N/A

Epigenetic Regulation of Immunity in Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin Deficiency

The variable natural clinical course of alpha-1 anti-trypsin deficiency (AATD) disease and strong influence of environmental exposures such as smoking, implicate a major role for epigenetic mechanisms in modifying AATD disease penetrance. The goal of this study proposal is to investigate epigenetic regulation of alveolar macrophage (AM) inflammation and function ...

Phase N/A

Lung Disease and Its Affect on the Work of White Blood Cells in the Lungs

AAT deficiency is a genetic disorder that affects around 100,000 people in the USA, including 1-3% of all people diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In AAT deficient people diagnosed with COPD, it was originally believed the cause of the disease was due to a lack of supply of ...

Phase N/A

AL1TER : Alpha-1 Therapy Evaluation and Research Patient Registry

This is a longitudinal, observational, non-interventional registry study, designed to collect both retrospective and prospective data, in order to acquire real-world data on product prescribing, product use by patients, and product performance for patients receiving 1-PI therapy in a homecare and/or a Coram ambulatory infusion suite. There is no limit ...

Phase N/A

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Adult Liver Study

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD) is a genetic disorder resulting in a low level of a protein called alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT). This deficiency can cause life-threatening liver disease and/or lung disease at various ages. Some patients experience life-threatening liver disease in childhood or liver cancer as adults. There is no specific ...
