The article discusses the results of the passive surveillance for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in Great Britain from 2005 to 2008. The number of cattle killed during the period as BSE suspects decline by 79 percent due to the ban on feeding ruminant protein to ruminants. The distribution of cattle killed in the different regions of the country remains constant. Most BSE-positive cattle were detected in the west and north of England.
