Final Report - IMMUNOPRION (Immunological and structural studies of prion diversity)

Project ID: 23144
Funded under: FP6-FOOD


This is the final report for the IMMUNOPRION project which was built around three key issues: the strain diversity of Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) agents; the crossing of the species barrier; and the evaluation of the host innate and acquired immune responses. The report covers the actions and their results. The report concludes that altogether these works strengthen the evidences that the immune system plays a crucial role in the barrier species in providing new insights and innovative tools to further study the mechanisms of the transmission of prions.
