Without Alpha-1, there'd be one less crime solved in Boston.
At least in fiction.
The popular new TNT series Rizzoli & Isles is about the friendship between two women, Detective Jane Rizzoli and Coroner Maura Isles, and their teamwork in solving criminal cases.
Last week, they solved their latest crime by a blood test for Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.
How likely is that?
We don't care.
Give us more Alpha-1 solving crimes. We'll take what we can get.
