The efficacy of a rapid test for detecting PrP(Sc) in central nervous system tissue was evaluated for the postmortem diagnosis of BSE at different times during the course of the disease. One hundred and six samples of brain, at the level of the medulla oblongata, and spinal cord, derived from the experimental study of the pathogenesis of BSE carried out in Great Britain between 1991 and 1995, were examined.
