An Alpha-1 Clinic has been established at the Royal Free Hospital in North London.  The clinic is run by Dr John Hurst, Dr Bibek Gooptu and Professor David Lomas and has been designed to cover all aspects of antitrypsin deficiency.   It is a joint clinic run by hepatologists (liver doctors) and respiratory physicians.  Individuals referred to the clinic will have blood tests, chest X-rays and lung function tests as well as liver scans. The clinic will also offer opportunities to take part in research studies aimed at understanding antitrypsin deficiency and developing a cure.
