Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are a group of progressive, invariably fatal, conditions that are associated with prions and affect the brain (encephalopathies) and nervous system of many animals, including humans, cattle, and sheep.

The transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, or prion diseases, are neurodegenerative conditions that affect both humans and animals

The transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, or prion diseases, are neurodegenerative conditions that affect both humans and animals. They are transmissible experimentally both within and between mammalian species by inoculation with infected tissues and sometimes by ingestion in food. The diseases affecting humans have traditionally been classified as Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, Gerstmann–Straussler–Scheinker disease, and kuru. They are rare, affecting about one person per million worldwide per year.

The risk assessment of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs or prion diseases) can be managed at three levels: 1. control of source material that could be potentially infected (biological products of human or animal origin, instruments in contact with these products); . . control of source material that could be potentially infected (biological products of human or animal origin, instruments in contact with these products); 2. control of the processes for the purification of biological products and instrument decontamination techniques; 3. evaluation of invasive medical or.

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), also known as prion diseases, are a group of progressive, invariably fatal, conditions that affect the brain (encephalopathies) and nervous system of many animals, including humans. Mental and physical abilities deteriorate and myriad tiny holes appear in the cortex causing it to appear like a sponge (hence spongiform) when brain tissue obtained at autopsy is examined under a microscope.

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies are a group of infectious diseases caused by prions. Prion-related encephalopathies are uncommon causes of severe, progressive cognitive impairment that are fatal

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies are a group of infectious diseases caused by prions. They are considered variants of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD) with similar pathology. Examples of spongiform encephalopathis include Kuru and fatal familial insomnia. Prion-related encephalopathies are uncommon causes of severe, progressive cognitive impairment that are fatal. Sporadic and familial cases have been described, but familial cases seem to be extremely rare. Sporadic cases are usually more severe compared to familial prion-related encephalopathies. Patients develop symptoms after a long period of incubation.

These conference proceedings cover the epidemiology of TSE in animals and humans, genetic susceptibility, neuropathology, pathogenesis, experimental transmission, transgenic and in vitro models, and molecular biology.
