36.1 Alpha-1 Deficiency In 1963, Swedish researchers discovered the often deadly lung disease called, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, or, Alpha-1. Prior to that, the symptoms of Alpha-1 misled doctors to misdiagnose it as some other respiratory problem such as emphysema, or asthma. 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)

36.1 Pancreatic Cancer Hidden between the stomach and backbone, and surrounded by the liver and intestines, is one of the most important organs of the body - the pancreas. Without its digestive enzymes, our bodies could not break down food. Insulin is also made in the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer is difficult to diagnose early, primarily because the symptoms are often vague at first. Experts discuss risk factors, signs, symptoms, and diagnostic techniques for pancreatic cancer. (5 of 6)
