An average cystic fibrosis (CF) carrier frequency of 1 in 25 in Europe is cited in numerous reports, although a great variability in estimated prevalences has been found in different European populations. The estimates of these frequencies were based on numbers of CF patients before identification of the gene in 1989. Here we report the results of a study(More)
Mouthwashes can be used as a DNA resource for mutation detection and, because collection and DNA isolation is simple and cheap, they could in particular, be used for large numbers of samples. To determine the failure rate (the proportion of mouth samples in which no PCR product was obtained) and the specificity of buccal epithelial cell mutation detection(More)
