SCRA ZOO ECJ: Study of a possible causal link between Creutzfeldt Jackob Disease isolates and small ruminant Scrapie cases

Starting date: 01/01/2018 End date: 31/12/2021
Programme: Animal health

Financing entities:

It is intended to study sporadic CJD isolates and VPsPr isolates obtained from patients to bring them to ovine/caprine PrPC recipients with the intention of establishing evidence of a putative causal relationship between sporadic CJD and TSEs in small ruminants, i.e. classic scrapie and atypical scrapie.
