RATIONALE α1-Antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency is one of the commonest rare respiratory disorders worldwide. Diagnosis, assessment of risk for developing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and management of replacement therapy require the availability of precise and updated ranges for protein serum levels. OBJECTIVE This paper aims to provide ranges of serum AAT according to the main genotype classes in the general population. METHODS The authors correlated mean AAT serum levels with… CONTINUE READING
