Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis

Pulmonary Alveolar Proteinosis (PAP) is a life-threatening lung disorder that affects men, women, and children.

The PAP Foundation is a non-profit patient advocacy organization dedicated to finding a cure and to improving the lives of those affected by PAP.

Through advocacy and collaboration, we promote research on PAP and provide information and support for PAP patients, healthcare professionals, and the public.

We are pleased to be a resource of information about PAP.  However, the information provided here is not, nor is it intended to be, medical advice and should never take the place of advice from your personal health care provider.

We provide hope to people suffering from pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PAP) and the many others who will benefit from research to better understand and treat this devastating disorder.

Please help us continue the phenomenal progress that has taken PAP from obscurity to clarity in less than a decade and the research needed to find a cure!

Connect with the
PAP Community.


The PAP Foundation is dedicated to worldwide collaboration among patients, clinicians and scientists that will increase awareness, research and understanding, improve health, and hasten development of effective therapy for pulmonary alveolar proteinosis.

The National PAP Registry was formed to help make reliable new research tests available to doctors and patients to improve the diagnosis of PAP, increase awareness and knowledge of PAP, and give patients a 'seat at the table' in planning and conducting PAP research including the clinical testing of several new potential therapies.
