BACKGROUND: To assess gene therapy treatment for cystic fibrosis (CF) in clinical trials it is essential to develop robust assays that can accurately detect transgene expression in human airway epithelial cells. Our aim was to develop a reproducible immunocytochemical assay for human CFTR protein which can measure both endogenous CFTR levels and augmented CFTR expression after gene delivery. METHODS: We characterised an antibody (G449) which satisfied the criteria for use in clinical trials....Expand abstract
