Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin Deficiency (AATD) is a genetic disease with lung and liver disease presentations. The purpose of this study is to examine the density of the lung as measured by chest computed tomography (CT) and determine if existing emphysema predicts changes in the rate of subsequent emphysema or changes in CT, serum or plasma biomarkers of interest. The overarching goal is to develop biomarkers that can be used in interventional trials since lung function changes do not typically inform disease progression in AATD.

Do you or your child have a lung disease? This study will investigate the genes involved in the breathing process and in the development of lung diseases such as asthma or sarcoidosis to improve understanding of the role they play. To participate in this study, you or your child must be between 2 and 90 years old. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland, at the NIH Clinical Center.

Asthma affects 1 in every 12 persons in the U.S., resulting in 1.9 million ED visits annually; however, the impact of ED care on patient-reported outcomes after acute exacerbations is unknown. The proposed research will train a physician-scientist to develop a novel instrument to assess patient-reported outcomes after adult ED asthma visits, evaluate the association between ED clinical processes and patient-reported outcomes, and test the association between patient-reported outcomes and subsequent acute care utilization. The candidate will acquire skills in patient-centered research, instrument development and validation, and risk adjusted outcome measurement that will enable her transition to independence.
