Brief Summary:
The purpose of AROAAT2001 (SEQUOIA) is to evaluate the safety, efficacy and tolerability of multiple doses of the investigational product, ARO-AAT, administered subcutaneously to participants with alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Alpha 1-Antitrypsin Deficiency Drug: ARO-AAT Injection Other: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Participants will be enrolled to receive multiple subcutaneous injections of ARO-AAT or placebo. Eligible participants will require a pre-dose biopsy completed as part of the study within the screening window. However, any participant with a biopsy result within 1 year of screening showing no fibrosis does not require a pre-dose biopsy. Only participants who have liver fibrosis will undergo a post-dose biopsy and may continue treatment in an open-label extension.
