Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) are a complex group of progressive, neurodegenerative disorders that affect a variety of animal species, including humans. The TSEs are unique among the neurodegenerative disorders in that they are transmissible. The different TSEs are characterized by a relatively long incubation period (months to years) and are always fatal. © 2008
