Reforms Can Save Lives Neurodegenerative disease and autism have been surging around the world for the past 30 years. A man-made environmental disaster is creating a public health disaster that’s still unfolding in many ways in most nations. Neurotoxins are driving the epidemic more than age–in some countries more than others. Teenagers are now dying of Creutzfeldt-Jakob

Raises Concerns About Prion Pathways Researchers have found abnormal prion protein in the skin of 23 people who died from Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD). Meanwhile exposing mice to skin tissue taken from the CJD patients caused them to develop prion disease. The study has raised questions about the possibility of prion diseases being transmitted during medical

Prion Disease A Spectrum Disease By the time Kay Schwister got her diagnosis last summer, she couldn’t talk anymore. But she could still scowl, and scowl she did. After weeks of decline and no clue what was causing it, doctors had told Schwister — a 53-year-old vocational rehab counselor and mother of two from Chicago

CJD Often Misdiagnosed As Alzheimer’s Disease Maine Medical Center confirmed Friday that a patient treated at the hospital carried a rare, dangerous brain illness to which a “small number” of other patients may have been exposed, though the hospital called that risk “exceedingly low.” The patient has Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, or CJD, a degenerative brain disorder

Prions Fueling A Public Health Disaster Urine can be used to test for Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Unfortunately, it also is a pathway that spreads prion disease among mammals. The Medical Research Council team is working on a simple test. They claim that their prototype test still needs honing before it could be used routinely. Currently there is

Learn How To Beat, Treat Alzheimer‘s Disease Alzheimer’s disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It’s killing more than 50 million people now. The count is likely much higher. Millions more will be diagnosed this year, while millions more will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed.Adding to the madness is the fact that millions of

Alzheimer’s, Creutzfeldt-Jakobs, Parkinson’s Disease All Part Of Prion Spectrum Editor’s Note: On September 9, 2015 additional research adds to the evidence that suggests that Alzheimer’s disease is a transmissible disease. Scientists have shown that tissues can transmit symptoms of the disease between animals. A new study published in the journal Nature raises additional concern about the transmissibility of Alzheimer’s

People living across Scandinavia have some of the highest prevalence of the disease in the world. At least 50 million people already have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

Prion Disease Unstoppable Among Mammals There might not be a difference between Alzheimer’s disease and the more-feared Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) at all. That is very bad news for millions of caregivers and community members around the world. Alzheimer’s disease and CJD are both members of an aggressive family of neurodegenerative diseases known as Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is
