The more you know about Alpha1 deficiency and lung disease (emphysema), the more you’ll understand how important treatment can be.
Alpha1 circulates in your bloodstream and helps protect the elastic structures of your lungs from an enzyme that can attack normal body tissue. Without enough functional Alpha1, lung damage can develop, usually in people between 20 and 50 years of age.
Talk to your doctor if you have questions about family testing, living with Alpha1 deficiency, or augmentation therapy.
Know how GLASSIA works. Know what treatment experience works best for you.
The Alpha1 protein protects the lung tissue by blocking certain enzyme-caused damage. Such damage can lead to severe lung disease, such as emphysema.
Alpha1 augmentation is chronic maintenance therapy. So, GLASSIA is typically given once every week to increase levels of Alpha1 in your blood and lungs.
GLASSIA’s flexibility of administration lets you decide where you want to infuse. Talk to your healthcare provider about which administration option works best for you:
