Prolastin-C (alpha 1-antitrypsin inhibitor) contains a protein, alpha 1-antitrypsin, that occurs naturally in the body and is important for preventing the breakdown of tissues in the lungs. In people who lack the alpha 1-antitrypsin protein, breakdown of lung tissues can lead to emphysema (damage to the air sacs in the lungs).
