The Alpha One Foundation is a charity dedicated to promoting awareness, increasing detection, and improving the diagnosis and treatment of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the discovery of Alpha-1 by Dr Sten Eriksson and Dr Carl-Bertil Laurell in Malmo, Sweden. Their groundbreaking work led to the understanding of why lung disease develops in Alpha-1 deficient individuals. To highlight the 50th anniversary, the 4th International Alpha-1 Patient Congress took place in Barcelona in April.

This report gives an overview of the work being done and the progress being made by the Alpha One Foundation.
