Prion disease – Symptoms, diagnosis and treatment
 · Currently, there is no cure for prion disease, and treatment consists of management of symptoms and palliative care. Survival for most sporadic prion patients is generally about 1 year or less, whereas survival of genetic prion disease varies greatly from a …

Prion diseases
How sporadic prion disease arises, is a mystery. Perhaps the initial seed of PrP Sc is caused by somatic mutations or by posttranslational modifications. The transmissibility of prion diseases has been proven by animal experiments. Natural transmission from In

New Sporadic Prion Protein Disease Identified
August 24, 2010 — A novel sporadic prion protein disease, variably protease-sensitive prionopathy (VPSPr), with distinct features has been described as the first new prion disease since sporadic
Overview of Prion Diseases
Prion diseases result from misfolding of a normal cell-surface brain protein called cellular prion protein (PrP C), whose exact function is unknown.Misfolded prion proteins are called prions or scrapie PrP (PrP Sc —from the name of the prototypic prion disease of sheep).
Kuru (disease)
Although ingestion of the prion particles can lead to the disease, [23] a high degree of transmission occurred if the prion particles could reach the subcutaneous tissue. With elimination of cannibalism because of Australian colonial law enforcement and the local Christian missionaries’ efforts, Alpers’ research showed that kuru was already declining among the Fore by the mid‑1960s.

A cell-based model of sporadic prion disease

Prion diseases are invariably fatal neurodegenerative disorders caused by the misfolding of the normal cellular prion protein. Although the prion protein is required for the development of prion disease, it is thought that additional factors (cofactors) may contribute to prion protein misfolding and the development of sporadic prion disease.
