Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency: Understanding

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency: Overview

Alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) is a protein produced in the liver that protects the body's tissues from being damaged by infection-fighting agents released by its immune system. In alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, the body’s normal production of AAT is reduced, resulting in the destruction of sensitive lung tissue. AAT deficiency is inherited. The severity of disease depends in part on the abnormalities present in the genes inherited from each parent. It is estimated that there are between 80,000 to 100,000 individuals affected by AAT deficiency in the United States.


AAT deficiency is an inherited condition. AAT deficiency happens when one or both parents pass on to their children an abnormal version of a gene that regulates the production of the AAT protein. Depending on the condition of the inherited genes, a person’s AAT levels may be normal, reduced or absent. When a person inherits an abnormal gene from each parent, it increases the severity of disease.

Not every individual with AAT deficiency develops emphysema, a type of COPD. People with AAT deficiency are at an increased risk of developing lung disease early in life if they smoke, are exposed to secondhand smoke, work or live in a dusty environment, have a family history of emphysema, have a personal history of asthma, or a history of repeated lung infections.


Symptoms can appear early in life, but many will not begin until a person reaches middle-age. Individuals with AAT deficiency have a wide variety of symptoms which may include:

 Shortness of breath

 Excessive cough with phlegm/sputum production

 Wheezing

 Decrease in exercise capacity and a persistent low energy state or tiredness

 Chest pain that increases when breathing in

Symptoms may be chronic or occur with acute respiratory tract infections, such as a cold or the flu.

When the liver is affected by AAT deficiency, symptoms may include tiredness, loss of appetite, weight loss, swelling of the feet or belly, yellowish discoloration of the skin (jaundice) or white part of the eyes, vomiting of blood, or blood in stools. In rare cases, AAT can cause a skin disease called panniculitis, resulting in hardened patches and red, painful lumps.


Screening blood test to check the level of alpha-1 antitrypsin in the body. If the levels are low, genetic testing with another blood test may be used to identify any abnormal genes. Test for lung function or spirometry test, a chest X-ray or CT scan of the lungs, blood testing of liver function and in some cases an ultrasound of the liver. If patient has low levels of AAT but normal liver and lung function tests, the patient may not need treatment; however, can be monitored with repeat testing over time.


There is no cure for AAT deficiency, but there are treatments to slow the lung damage it causes.

It may need a lifelong treatment called augmentation therapy. This treatment raises the levels of the AAT protein in the lungs, using ATT protein taken from the blood of donors. This helps slow down lung damage. Side effects of this treatment are rare and may include a mild fever, headaches, nausea, and dizziness.

If having COPD, the patient may need medicines or other treatments. Talk to the doctor about ways to help prevent or delay lung damage, such as quitting smoking and avoiding secondhand smoke, dust, or air pollution.

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency Emerging Drugs

ARO AAT: Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals

ARO AAT is a second generation, N-Acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) based, subcutaneously administered RNA interference based therapeutic. ARO-AAT is designed to knock down the hepatic production of the mutant alpha-1 antitrypsin (Z-AAT) protein, the cause of progressive liver disease in AATD patients. In June 2019, the US FDA has granted Fast Track designation to ARO-AAT. ARO-AAT is in Phase III clinical studies for the treatment of liver disease associated with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD).

ALN-AAT02: Alnylam Pharmaceuticals

ALN AAT02 is a subcutaneously administered RNAi therapeutic that targets alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT). ALN-AAT02 is based on the Alnylam's enhanced stabilization chemistry plus (ESC+)-GalNAc-conjugate technology, which enables subsequent subcutaneous dosing with increased selectivity and a wide therapeutic index. The drug is currently in Phase I/II clinical development for the treatment of ZZ Type AAT Deficiency Liver Disease.
