With the epidemic of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (=BSE) in Great Britain it was noted that some cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease have increased in frequency. The more common form of the disease is transmitted by contact with infected nervous tissue from BSE infected animals (acquired cases).The underlying cause of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease seems to stem from the same.

BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) is a progressive neurological disorder of cattle that results from infection by an unusual transmissible agent called a prion.

The nature of the transmissible agent is not well understood. Currently, the most accepted theory is that the agent is a modified form of a normal protein known as prion protein.

Fiona Houston, Olivier Andréoletti, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Abstract. Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is the only animal prion disease that has been demonstrated to be zoonotic, causing variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (vCJD) in humans.

The link between BSE and vCJD was established by careful surveillance, epidemiologic investigations, and experimental studies using. bovine spongiform encephalopathy a prion disease of adult cattle in the British Isles with neurologic symptoms.

It is transmitted by feed containing protein in the form of meat and bone meal derived from infected animals. The etiologic agent is also the cause of new variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob also mad cow disease.

Mad cow disease, otherwise known as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), has been in the news in recent years. This disease is caused by ingesting infected beef. Cows who suffer from this disease usually die within six months. Humans have, in recent years, also been affected by mad cow disease.

Atypical bovine spongiform encephalopathy is more infectious to human PrP-expressing transgenic mice than classical bovine spongiform encephalopathy, suggesting a potential for zoonotic transmission.
