Title: Bovine Spongiform Encephlopathy (BSE) (A review
Authors: M. A. Alshaikh
Issue Date: 1417
Abstract: t. Sovine spongiform encephlopathy (SSE) is one of a family of scrapie-like diseases which was first recognized in the U.K. in 1986. Cases in adult cattle occurred with increasing frequency, and, at the peak of the disease, approximately 1200 new cases were recorded each month. SSE is postulated to have arisen subsequent to change in the rendering process for meat and bone which led to the exposure of cattle to the scrapie agent. The ban on inclusion of animal-derived protein in cow feed may account for the fallen number of new cases of SSE. Major clinical signs include behavioral disorders, difficulty in rising and paresis. Some environmental factors tested did not show relationship with the incidence of the disease while no sign of horizontal transmission between cows was found; however, recent reports raised the possibility of vertical transmission. SSE has been recognized mainly in the U.K. while sporadic cases occurred in several other countries.
