Expression of coagulation factor IX in a haematopoietic cell line.

Abstract

We have developed a gene therapy project for haemophilia B which aims to express factor IX (FIX) in haematopoietic lineage. Haematopoietic stem cells and subsequent megakaryocyte-derived cells represent the target cells of this approach. Our speculation is that platelets can deliver the coagulation factor at the site of injury, and subsequently correct the… (More)
