Final Report - NEUROPRION (Prevention, control and management of prion diseases)

Project ID: 506579
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

This is the final report for the NEUROPRION project which aimed at mobilising European research teams to create a scientific community able to face the challenge of prion diseases and generate the critical knowledge to protect human and animal health. The report notes that more than 200 publications in international peer reviewed journals bear witness to the contribution of NEUROPRION in advancing our understanding of prion diseases, and many participants have advised national and European Union safety agencies about appropriate measures to protect human and animal health, especially after the unexpected discovery of atypical BSE and scrapie cases in bovines and small ruminants, respectively, and the diagnosis of BSE in two French and British goats.
