Corrected gene. They can be isolated, expanded, and modified to express wild-type CFTR (Leblond et al. 2009). Wang et al. (2005) hypothesized that mesenchymal stem cells with wild-type CFTR could correct the ion-associated CF defects by contributing to apical chloride secretion. The authors explored the idea of autologous bone-marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells with CFTR gene correction. They demonstrate that the mesenchymal stem cells co-cultured with airway epithelial cells (AEC) assume the epithelia-like shape.

Their neutrophils are unable to cope with bacterial infections, especially with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The patients’ inflammatory response is normal, with influx of neutrophils in the airways. However, CF patients secrete less L-selectin and more myeloperoxidase and elastase in comparison with healthy subjects. Conese et al. (2003) suggest that neutrophilic abnormalities might open possibilities of hematopoietic stem cell as a target for therapy. The CFTR is expressed by neutrophilic phagolysosomes; therefore its function could be defective as the loss of chloride secretion impairs the hypochlorous acid production which contributes to bacterial killing (Painter et al.
