The authors examined the expression of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) and its relationship to histopathological changes in cystic fibrosis (CF) liver tissue. Immunohistochemistry was used to examine expression of CFTR, intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and liver cell-type markers in liver cryosections in 11 patients with CF-associated liver disease, and non-CF controls with (n = 17) and without (n = 3) liver disease. In CF patients prominent inflammatory… CONTINUE READING
