Prolastin-C (alpha 1-proteinase inhibitor): I was diagnosed with Alpha-1 Antitripsin Deficiency in 2010. I currently receive weekly infusions via surgically implanted port. I infuse at our local cancer center. I have attempted Home Health and was horrified by their lack of knowledge and experience for running an IV and none of the 5 different people assigned to me took the time to access the online training on medication preparation. Side-Effects: Extreme tiredness, Feel drained

Zemaira (alpha 1-proteinase inhibitor): I feel so much better now and find that compared to other AATD medicines, I feel better after this one is infused.

Zemaira (alpha 1-proteinase inhibitor): As far as a drug that needs to be infused, it is about as easy as it can be to do.
