Alpha-1 Anti-Trypsin (AAT) Treatment in Acute Myocardial Infarction (VCU-Alpha1RT)
Acute myocardial infarction is characterized by an intense inflammatory response.
The degree of the response influences clinical outcome, with 'more' inflammation promoting heart failure. In this study we plan to determine whether treatment with plasma derived alpha-1 antitrypsin will quench the inflammatory response in patients with acute ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).

Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Alpha-1 Anti-Trypsin (AAT) to Quench the Acute Inflammatory Response in ST-segment Elevation Acute Myocardial Infarction|
- C Reactive Protein (Area Under the Curve) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]A single area under the curve (AUC) calculation based upon C-reactive protein (CRP) values drawn at baseline, 3 days, and 14 days.
- Left Ventricular End-systolic Volume Change [ Time Frame: 3 months ]We will calculate the interval change between admission and 3 months in left ventricular end-systolic volume, using echocardiography
- Safety [ Time Frame: 3 months ]We will record the number of participants with all adverse events (cardiac and non-cardiac) over the 3 months, including infusion reactions and drug-related issues.
|Study Start Date:||December 2013|

|Primary Completion Date:||June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Alpha-1 anti-trypsin (AAT)
We will use plasma derived AAT 60 mg/Kg, single infusion, within 12 hours of hospital admission for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)
