Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease
Languages of publication
Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is caused by the transmission of bovine spongiform encephalopathy to humans. The clinical and investigative features of variant CJD are relatively distinct from sporadic CJD. The number of cases of vCJD are increasing with time in the UK, but the total future number of cases of vCJD is uncertain.
