    Objective: To investigate abnormal prion protein (PrP) deposition in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) in human prion diseases. Methods: Eight patients with prion diseases were examined: three with sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD), Iwo with dural graft associated CJD (dCJD), one with...

    We have compared the immunomorphological spectrum of the deposition of the disease-associated prion protein (PrPSc) in the cerebral and cerebellar cortex of 32 Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) patients with the PrP gene (PRNP) E200K mutation to 45 sporadic CJD and 14 other genetic prion disease...

    Genetic prion diseases are late onset fatal neurodegenerative disorders linked to pathogenic mutations in the prion protein-encoding gene, PRNP. The most prevalent of these is the substitution of Glutamate for Lysine at codon 200 (E200K), causing genetic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (gCJD) in...

    The inherited prion diseases (IPD) are a group of dominantly inherited neurodegenerative disorders caused by mutation of the prion protein gene (PRNP). Although clinically heterogeneous, IPDs are generally associated with progressive dementia, ataxia and with characteristic pathology. Here we...

    A case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) with a rare mutation of the prion protein (PrP) gene ( PRNP) at codon 208 (R208H) is described. By comparison with two preceding reports, the case described here displayed two distinct biochemical and neuropathological features. Western blot analysis of...

    Human prion diseases are fatal neurodegenerative disorders caused by misfolding of the prion protein. There are no useful biomarkers of disease progression. Cerebral cortex spongiform change, one of the classical pathological features of prion disease, resolves in prion-infected transgenic mice...

    Prion infections of the central nervous system (CNS) are characterized by a reactive gliosis and the subsequent degeneration of neuronal tissue. The activation of glial cells, which precedes neuronal death, is likely to be initially caused by the deposition of misfolded, in part proteinase...

    Background: The epidemic form of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) is generally considered to have been caused by a single prion strain but at least two strain variants of cattle prion disorders have recently been recognized. An additional neurodegenerative condition, idiopathic brainstem...
