36.1 Alpha-1 Deficiency In 1963, Swedish researchers discovered the often deadly lung disease called, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, or, Alpha-1.

But Alpha-1 is a genetic defect in which the body does not make enough of a particular protein that protects the lungs and liver from damage. Experts and patients talk about the inroads that have been made in better managing this disease. (1 of 5)
