Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency

Optum® Infusion Pharmacy provides personalized, expert care for people who have AATD.


When it’s more than a cough, we can help

Thousands of people in the U.S. have alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD). But the symptoms — coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath — are like many other health conditions. That means many people who have AATD are not diagnosed.

If you have AATD, Optum® Infusion Pharmacy is here for you throughout your treatment. We’ll help you infuse your augmentation therapy — and we’ll take care of any roadblocks along the way.

  • Expert care from an infusion team that’s highly trained in AATD and how to treat it
  • Convenient infusions, either in your home or in one of our infusion suites
  • Personalized treatment that follows your doctor’s orders and care plan
  • Nationwide support from our pharmacy and infusion nursing teams, for treatment wherever you are
