Figure 1:
Typical ranges of serum alpha-1 antitrypsin levels for different genotypes (normal, heterozygous carriers of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency and homozygous deficiency). The left axis is expressed in μM because this unit is common in the literature. The right axis shows an approximate conversion into mg/dL because this unit is commonly reported by clinical laboratories and by different measurement technology (nephelometry or radial immunodiffusion). Adapted from Brantly and colleagues and the American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society statement. Note: AAT = alpha-1 antitrypsin.
