  • 2. A1PI genotype of Pi*Z/Z, Pi*Z/Null, Pi*Malton/Z, Pi*Null/Null, or other "at-risk" allelic combinations (excluding MS, MZ, and SZ)
  • 3. Endogenous plasma (antigenic) A1PI level of <8 μM.
  • 4. Participant must have at least one of the following: clinical diagnosis of emphysema, evidence of emphysema on computerized tomography (CT) scan of the chest, and/or evidence of airway obstruction which is not completely reversed with bronchodilator treatment at the time of screening.
  • 5. Participant is being treated with any respiratory medications including inhaled bronchodilators, inhaled anticholinergics, inhaled corticosteroids, or low-dose systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≤10 mg/day or its equivalent), the doses of the participant's medications have remained unchanged for at least 14 days prior to screening.
  • 6. Participant is a nonsmoker or has ceased smoking for a minimum of 13 weeks prior to screening (serum cotinine level at screening within normal range of a nonsmoker) and agrees to refrain from smoking throughout the course of the study.

    1. Post-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) ≥50% of predicted
    2. If FEV1 is >80% predicted, then FEV1/forced vital capacity (FVC) must be <0.7. **Note: Inclusion criterion #8 is not applicable to participants who are enrolled after the target of 15 to 18 evaluable participants has been reached and who are therefore not required to undergo the bronchoscopy/BAL procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • 21. Participant has had lung surgery which may interfere with bronchoscopy.
  • 22. Known history of allergic/hypersensitivity reactions to medications used during and for perioperative care associated with the bronchoscopy/BAL procedures, such as local anesthetics, sedatives, pain control medications.
  • 23. Participant is receiving or requires long-term (>4 weeks) immunosuppressive therapy, such as systemic corticosteroids at doses greater than 10 mg/day of prednisone (or its equivalent), mycophenolate mofetil, azathioprine, cyclophosphamide, and rituximab.
