I was told of a gene transfection experiment involving transfection of
adenoviral-CFTR into lung epithelia of cystic fibrosis patients, where an
autoimmune reaction against the (new) CFTR protein was observed. However,
I have no idea if it was published or not, and I cannot remember who
lectured me on the topic. Sorry.
