The appearance of BSE in herds of cattle born after the introduction of the ruminant feed ban and the potential impact of BSE and CWD on human health in the U.S has raised new concerns and questions, as has the continued occurrence of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) in North American deer herds. The news that 3 of 17 recipients of blood from a vCJD donor contracted the disease has shown that transmission through blood transfusion is a reality. This conference will present the newest data on TSE’s in the context of its application to the pharmaceutical, biological, environmental and device industries.
