The Mark Egly Foundation (MEF) is leading the charge against many diseases by identifying uses for Alpha1 Antitrypsin previously undiscovered! These diseases include Alzheimer's, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Multiple Sclerosis, 152 autoimmune diseases, the potential for the prevention and spread of multiple cancers, and so much more! We now consider Alzheimer's as an autoimmune disease.
We first must be informative to doctors and patients regarding the massive impact Alpha1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, the more extraordinary potential uses of the protein Alpha1 Antitrypsin has on the overall health of an individual or the potential destruction of tissues, and the potential adverse health effects on humans and all mammals!
Secondly, through the identification of AATD, preventing illness and disease that may not manifest for decades! If any disease is already present, our impact on treating and lessening the impact of many conditions will have a significant opportunity to improve health status for many who have been left with more questions than answers currently.
Our impact has already been significantly successful with the number of medical professionals who have simply read Mark's patent document and have already realized there is more they can do each day with their patients, with many going back and looking at previous records to see who may benefit from a closer look at AATD as a potential answer to their patients care!
Our impact will be much greater each day as physicians will find through Mark's discoveries THAT EXCESS AND UNCONTROLLED NEUTROPHIL ELASTASE (a protease and tissue devouring substance) is a major factor in 152 autoimmune diseases that Mark has identified! Without enough of the naturally occurring protein Alpha1 Antitrypsin (a protease inhibitor), the body is at significant risk in multiple ways from the excess neutrophils!!!
Here is one major glaring example with an age-old question, “Why does the nonsmoking spouse of a smoker develop lung cancer and the smoker does not develop cancer? Smoke and pollutants destroy the body's naturally produced Alpha1 Antitrypsin! If Alpha1 is unavailable at significant circulating levels throughout the body, the entire body and the lungs are unprotected from invading excess Neutrophil Elastase!
We desire to continue to make a significant contribution to the health and welfare of our society with the Mark Egly Foundation. Over our short history, we have brought science to the hands of the medical community. Now with everyone's help, we look for the medical community to move at the speed of light and make even more impact with our discoveries.
The impact of the Foundations start of Uniting Doctors has just begun. We believe in uniting and working together with the world's best medical professionals and institutions to change the health and welfare of patients each passing day, which is in everyone's best interest!
