Summary:
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.

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
