Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies - The European Union's research response to a major public and animal health challenge

Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This booklet highlights the research response of the European Commission to the spectrum of diseases known as the Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs), which include BSE (primarily a disease of cattle), scrapie in sheep and goats (small ruminants) and variant and classical or sporadic CJD in man. It also provides information on three of the larger research programmes carried out in Member States of the European Union. The booklet focuses on key projects funded by the Directorate-General for Research from the mid 1990s to the present day, and in doing so, aims to give an overview of the important work carried out in the past, as well as of current research priorities.
