Fourth International Alpha Patients’ Congress

The 4th International Alpha-1 Patients’ Congress will be held in Barcelona on the 12th and 13th of April 2013. The congress has been timed to overlap an International Research Conference on Alpha-1 also held in Barcelona on the 11th and 12th of April.  This will give Alpha patients an opportunity to meet and discuss their condition with experts in the field.  Major events such as this are especially significant in 2013 – the 50th anniversary of the discovery of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.  Full details are available on the congress website www.alpha-1barcelona2013.org.
