    I am making a documentary about Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease. I am shooting and editing it myself while I am getting tested for the genetic mutation that killed my grandfather and just this year - my mother. Along the way, I will meet the doctors and researchers working to find a cure for this untreatable, 100% fatal brain disease.

  • Cure CJD: Julie's Story

    Creutzfeldt-Jakub Disease, or CJD, is probably something that you've never heard of. But with a mortality rate of 100%, perhaps you should. A rare, degenerative brain condition, CJD is only diagnosed around 100 times a year in the UK. Without a cure, those suffering the disease are usually given just 12 months to live. Julie Robinson was diagnosed with CJD in October 2016, the same month that she was given the all clear from breast cancer. Doctors have given her 12 months to 5 years to live. What makes this even more harrowing, is that Julie has contracted the 'inherited' form of CJD, meaning that her children, Jamie and Jemma, and her young grandchildren are at risk of being diagnosed with the disease. This video features Julie, her husband John, and some of her closest friends, discuss...

CJD is at times called a human form of mad cow disease, given that bovine spongiform encephalopathy is believed to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease in humans. CJD is the most common among the types of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy found in humans. In CJD, the brain tissue develops holes and takes on a sponge-like texture. This is due to a type of infectious protein called a prion. Prions are misfolded proteins which replicate by converting their properly folded counterparts. The first symptom of CJD is rapidly progressive dementia, leading to memory loss, personality changes and hallucinations. This is accompanied by physical problems such as speech impairment, jerky movements (myoclonus), balance and coordination dysfunction (ataxia), changes in gait, rigid posture, and seizures. The duration of the disease varies greatly, but sporadic (non-inherited) CJD can be fatal within months or even weeks (Johnson, 1998). In some people, the symptoms can continue for years. In most patients, these symptoms are followed by involuntary movements and the appearance of an atypical diagnostic electroencephalogram tracing. Most victims die 6 months after initial symptoms appear, often of pneumonia due to impaired coughing reflexes. About 15% of patients survive 2 or more years. The symptoms of CJD are caused by the progressive death of the brain's nerve cells, which is associated with the build-up of abnormal prion proteins forming amyloids. When brain tissue from a CJD patient is examined under a microscope, many tiny holes can be seen where whole areas of nerve cells have died. The word "spongiform" in "transmissible spongiform encephalopathies" refers to the sponge-like appearance of the brain tissue.

See http://www.foodsafetypolicy.com CJD Research Campaign from October 2011 Two decades on since BSE or mad cow disease hit the headlines, a father of a victim of its form in humans, new variant CJD, wants the government to maintain research into the degenerative condition. Recent research suggests up to 1 in 1000 people could still be affected. *** Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease or CJD is a degenerative neurological disorder (brain disease) that is incurable and invariably fatal.CJD is at times called a human form of mad cow disease, given that bovine spongiform encephalopathy is believed to be the cause of variant Creutzfeldt--Jakob disease in humans. CJD is the most common among the types of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy found in humans. In CJD, the brain tissue develops holes and takes on a sponge-like texture. This is due to a type of infectious protein called a prion. Prions are misfolded proteins which replicate by converting their properly folded counterparts The first symptom of CJD is rapidly progressive dementia, leading to memory loss, personality changes and hallucinations. This is accompanied by physical problems such as speech impairment, jerky movements (myoclonus), balance and coordination dysfunction (ataxia), changes in gait, rigid posture, and seizures. The duration of the disease varies greatly, but sporadic (non-inherited) CJD can be fatal within months or even weeks (Johnson, 1998). In some people, the symptoms can continue for years. In most patients, these symptoms are followed by involuntary movements and the appearance of an atypical diagnostic electroencephalogram tracing. Most victims die 6 months after initial symptoms appear, often of pneumonia due to impaired coughing reflexes. About 15% of patients survive 2 or more years. The symptoms of CJD are caused by the progressive death of the brain's nerve cells, which is associated with the build-up of abnormal prion proteins forming amyloids. When brain tissue from a CJD patient is examined under a microscope, many tiny holes can be seen where whole areas of nerve cells have died. The word "spongiform" in "transmissible spongiform encephalopathies" refers to the sponge-like appearance of the brain tissue. Cause Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy diseases are caused by prions. The diseases are thus sometimes called prion diseases. Other prion diseases include Gerstmann--Sträussler--Scheinker syndrome (GSS), fatal familial insomnia (FFI) and kuru in humans, as well as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, commonly known as mad cow disease) in cattle, chronic wasting disease (CWD) in elk and deer, and scrapie in sheep. Alpers' syndrome in infants is also thought to be a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy caused by a prion.

I am making a documentary about Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease. I am shooting and editing it myself while I am getting tested for the genetic mutation that killed my grandfather and just this year - my mother. Along the way, I will meet the doctors and researchers working to find a cure for this untreatable, 100% fatal brain disease. I will also meet other families that have suffered the painful loss of their loved ones to this cruel disease.

Creutzfeldt-Jakub Disease, or CJD, is probably something that you've never heard of. But with a mortality rate of 100%, perhaps you should. A rare, degenerative brain condition, CJD is only diagnosed around 100 times a year in the UK. Without a cure, those suffering the disease are usually given just 12 months to live. Julie Robinson was diagnosed with CJD in October 2016, the same month that she was given the all clear from breast cancer. Doctors have given her 12 months to 5 years to live. What makes this even more harrowing, is that Julie has contracted the 'inherited' form of CJD, meaning that her children, Jamie and Jemma, and her young grandchildren are at risk of being diagnosed with the disease. This video features Julie, her husband John, and some of her closest friends, discussing the impact of CJD on their lives. Julie's husband, a firefighter at Buckingham Fire Station, is one of a number of current and former colleagues, and family members who are aiming to raise £25,000 for the Cure CJD Campaign by completing a series of fundraising events, culminating in an endurance kayak - 80 miles in three days from Buckingham to Huntingdon on the River Great Ouse. Please spend a few minutes to watch the video and then share to raise awareness of this horrible disease and hopefully help the Cure CJD Campaign find a cure.

This video provides basic information about Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), a rare, 100% fatal, degenerative brain disease. Davey L Kock passed away on September 25, 2012 from CJD. His family and friends are hosting a fundraiser with a pork loin supper, raffle, silent and live auctions, and a dance on November 16, 2013, which would have been Davey's 55th birthday. We invite you to join us as we raise funds that will go towards a research grant in Davey's name to help find a treatment and cure for CJD as well as provide support for families who currently are and will in the future be affected by this disease. Find out more information about the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/216186431875888/ If you are unable to attend and would still like to give, you can do so here: http://friendraising.towercare.com/Markslist/campaign/display/profile.do?campaignId=19127 Learn more about CJD and the CJD Foundation here: http://www.cjdfoundation.org/ Thank you for helping us raise awareness for CJD and make steps toward a cure.
