Prion diseases such as Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD) are fatal, neuro-degenerative disorders with no known therapy. A proportion of the UK population has been exposed to a bovine spongiform encephalopathy-like prion strain and are at risk of developing variant CJD. A hallmark of prion disease is the transformation of normal cellular prion protein (PrPC) into an infectious disease-associated isoform, PrPSc. Recent in vitro studies indicate that anti-PrP monoclonal antibodies with little or no… CONTINUE READING
