|Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency|
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Alpha-1 Foundation DNA and Tissue Bank|
- Data and tissue samples [ Time Frame: The total number of tissue samples received and used for research are tracked annually. ]At the end of 15 years the tissue and data sample usage will be analyzed to determine continuation of the project. Each year the investigator provides a summary to the Alpha-1 Foundation.
