Complete absence of data on alpha 1 antitrypsin in this country prompted us to determine serum levels using radial immunodiffusion (RID) and phenotypes by isoelectric focusing (IEF) in 100 healthy adults (52 males and 48 females). Mean serum alpha 1 antitrypsin concentration in healthy subjects was 2.47 +/- 0.08 g/l and the main phenotypes MM (70%), M1 M2 (28%) and FM 3 (2%) are infrequent in our population.
