|Leading researchers and clinicians describe their state-of-the-art findings and hypotheses arising from a variety of different approaches to this group of diseases. Their approaches include clinical presentations, epidemiology, transgenic methods, and diagnostic tests via transmission electron microscopy and immunoblotting. The diseases treated range from human to animal spongiform encephalopathies and include Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease, and scrapie.|
From the Publisher:
Contains 18 articles describing the methodology frequently used to study prion diseases occurring in animals and in humans, including Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease, and scrapie. Covers the clinical diagnosis of human disease and provides detailed accounts of the neuropathological examination of human brains, laboratory techniques currently used to confirm the presence of PrPSc, and methods for inactivating the agents involved in prior diseases. Several chapters cover epidemiology, genetics, and different approaches toward an understanding of the pathogenesis of prion diseases. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
