It belongs to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) family of human and animal diseases. The onset of this disease usually occurs at about 60 years of age and 90% of sufferers usually die within the first year of having the disease. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is broken down into 3 categories: Sporadic, Hereditary, and Acquired. Sporadic CJD is the most common and affects about 80% of the people diagnosed. There aren’t any risk factors that can lead you to have this type. Hereditary CJD affects 5-10% of the people diagnosed and is caused by a genetic mutation. Acquired CJD is the least commo...

    Description. World In Action. A movie about CJD transferred from VHS and digitised for upload to youtube. Please note that this was broadcast in the late 80s or early 90s and things have changed since then, with regards to dementia research and mad cow disease. Since horses are less likely to get CJD, the meat industry secretly substituted equine flesh to diffuse the potential cross-infection. If you buy processed meat products, you've probably eaten horse. A lot of dementia cases are unexplained, probably linked to eating beef so, since stopping horse meat being sold as beef, the risk of getting CJD has returned. Considering the vast choice of meat substitutes available in most shops this is a good reason to become a vegetarian, 'like wot the hoofbag is'.

  • Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Can Now Be Detected By Urine Test

    Researchers at the Medical Research Council in Britain have discovered it may be possible to test patients for Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease using urine samples, instead of the usual MRI. According to UPI, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, or CJD, is a rare degenerative brain disorder that affects approximately 1 in every 1 million people globally. The study was published in JAMA Neurology. Scientists used blood samples to test the urine of patients with CJD. Urine samples from patients with the disease were found to have high levels of prions, infectious agents associated with CJD and bovine spongiform encephalopathy in cattle. That illness is also called "mad cow disease." By the time their diagnosis is confirmed, patients usually have just weeks to live. While the study's authors admit the disease...

    This video is dedicated to Andrew Black whose life was taken at the age of 24 by vCJD, variant of the Creutzfeldt Jakob disease, a neurodegenerative disease generated by a terrible race for profit without ethics, profit at all costs. Since the late 1970's many cattle have been fed with meals derived from carcasses of slaughtered animals with the purpose of accelerating the growth of bovine animals thus forcing them, herbivorous in nature, to become carnivorous and actually cannibals. The highest levels of toxicity for BSE in the food chain was 1990-1991.The highest risk came from MRM (mechanically recovered meat) which was up to ten times cheaper than meat destined for supermarket shelves and food outlets. MRM resembles a puree or white paste. It's made from vertebral column, ribs...

The Documentary is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAJTr6Nxxa0 Christine Lord, as Andy's mum and a freelance journalist continues to research the scandal - and its links between school meals, (state and independent), baby food, vaccines and medicines. *** 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.

It belongs to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) family of human and animal diseases. The onset of this disease usually occurs at about 60 years of age and 90% of sufferers usually die within the first year of having the disease. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is broken down into 3 categories: Sporadic, Hereditary, and Acquired. Sporadic CJD is the most common and affects about 80% of the people diagnosed. There aren’t any risk factors that can lead you to have this type. Hereditary CJD affects 5-10% of the people diagnosed and is caused by a genetic mutation. Acquired CJD is the least common type that affects only 1% of the people diagnosed. It is usually caused by exposure of nervous system tissue, including the brain, during a certain medical procedure. Early symptoms of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease includes: Rapidly progressive dementia Problems in muscular coordination Changes in personality Impairment of memory, judgement, vision, and thinking Depression and insomnia may occur Severe symptoms of CJD includes: Mental impairment Myoclonus, which is involuntary muscle jerks Blindness Inability to move or speak Coma Development of infections such as pneumonia that can lead to death Symptoms of CJD may be similar to those of Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s Disease, but to accurately confirm the disease, an autopsy needs to be done because CJD causes a unique change to brain tissue CJD is caused by prions, which are harmless proteins found in human body cells, but once they become abnormal, they clump together which leads to neuron loss brain damage that is seen in the disease. The way the brain damage occurs is yet unknown. CJD can also be inherited. Prions can become infectious if mutation occurs in the prion gene or if the prion gene becomes mutated in an egg or sperm cell that will ultimately be passed down to the offspring. CJD cannot be transmitted through the air or casual contact and is not contagious. But the disease can be transmitted by coming into contact with an infected person’s spinal cord fluid or brain tissue. There are cases of people contracting the disease from cornea transplants, dura mater grafts, implantation of unsterilized electrodes in the brain, and injection of contaminated growth hormones from the pituitary gland. The chances of contracting CJD through medical procedures has greatly decreased through the improvement of medicine. At this time, there aren't any diagnostic tests that can diagnose someone with Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. However, if a doctor suspects someone of having CJD, they’ll administer tests such as spinal taps and giving the patient an electroencephalogram that will rule out treatable forms of dementia (such as encephalitis and chronic meningitis). CT scans can also rule out brain tumors and signs of stroke. MRI scans of the brain can reveal the pattern of brain degeneration to determine if they’re caused by CJD. Unfortunately, there is no way to treat CJD but current treatment is alleviating symptoms for sufferers by prescribing them opiate drugs and sodium valproate for the myoclonus. Precautions that can be taken to prevent the spread of CJD includes: Covering cuts and abrasions with waterproof dressings Wearing face protection when coming into contact with splashing blood or spinal fluid Disposing clothes that came into contact with a patient Avoid cutting or poking yourself with instruments contaminated with blood Soaking instruments that came into contact with a patient with undiluted chlorine bleach Thanks for watching!

Researchers at the Medical Research Council in Britain have discovered it may be possible to test patients for Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease using urine samples, instead of the usual MRI. According to UPI, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, or CJD, is a rare degenerative brain disorder that affects approximately 1 in every 1 million people globally. The study was published in JAMA Neurology. Scientists used blood samples to test the urine of patients with CJD. Urine samples from patients with the disease were found to have high levels of prions, infectious agents associated with CJD and bovine spongiform encephalopathy in cattle. That illness is also called "mad cow disease." By the time their diagnosis is confirmed, patients usually have just weeks to live. While the study's authors admit the disease remains incurable, they contend an improved diagnostic procedure marks significant progress. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/10/04/Urine-test-may-detect-Creutzfeldt-Jakob-disease/6701475582552/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

They first came to public attention in the mid 1980s in the form of the BSE epidemic in the United Kingdom. BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) is a prion disease in cattle. Tissue from infected animals may have contaminated cattle feed, leading to the silent spread of the BSE epidemic. There is also a theory that BSE came from feed contaminated with scrapie, the long established sheep prion disease. Inevitably, concern over whether BSE could pass to humans mounted. In humans the best known of the prion diseases is Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD), which reportedly affects around one person per million per year. In the United States this translates to 250-300 new cases per year. It is well known that CJD is very difficult to diagnose leading to speculation that the one case per million report may be incorrect. Most of the cases are "classical" or "sporadic" CJD (sCJD), occurring for no, as yet, known reason. The sporadic form accounts for approximately 85% of the cases, the familial form approximately 15%. There have also been a few cases which have occurred from contamination via medical procedures; this type is known as iatrogenic or Acquired CJD. Finally over the last few years, another type of Acquired CJD called variant (vCJD) has been identified in young people. CJD has been linked to ingestion of beef tainted with BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy), most cases have occurred in the United Kingdom." -- Information Provided by: http://www.cjdfoundation.org/about-cjd

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.

This video is dedicated to Andrew Black whose life was taken at the age of 24 by vCJD, variant of the Creutzfeldt Jakob disease, a neurodegenerative disease generated by a terrible race for profit without ethics, profit at all costs. Since the late 1970's many cattle have been fed with meals derived from carcasses of slaughtered animals with the purpose of accelerating the growth of bovine animals thus forcing them, herbivorous in nature, to become carnivorous and actually cannibals. The highest levels of toxicity for BSE in the food chain was 1990-1991.The highest risk came from MRM (mechanically recovered meat) which was up to ten times cheaper than meat destined for supermarket shelves and food outlets. MRM resembles a puree or white paste. It's made from vertebral column, ribs, and scraps of meat from the head such as cheeks and tongues. MRM was not only used extensively in pies, burgers and sausages, but also in many vegetarian dishes and chicken meals. These toxic meals were then supplied to some of the most vulnerable in society. They went into schools, hospitals and nursing homes and the elderly through the meals on wheels service. Prisoners were fed MRM. It was served-up to members of the Armed Forces, and to students in colleges across the country. This vile mix of animal parts, often cross-contaminated with brain material, was never meant to reach the wider consumer. Supermarkets, food outlets and shops would not risk their customers' disgust . Instead it was regularly fed to schoolchildren, soldiers, sailors, airmen, patients in hospital and to the elderly all who were seen as very much at the end of the "food chain". The greatest BSE exposure period (for consumers) was 1980-1996. As late as 1995 slaughterhouses were still allowed to mechanically recover meat even though the end-product contained the most dangerous BSE infected parts of the cow. The result of this unnatural practice is precisely vCJD, which affects young people, killing brain cells and destroying their lives in cruel ways. The young life of Andrew was taken and destroyed unfairly by vCJD, which transformed his body, young, handsome and vigorous, in a lifeless wreck. This video is dedicated to the memory of Andrew and to all those young people killed in the prime of life just like him and to show what great tragedies are caused by selfishness, lack of ethics and injustice of the world in which we live. This video is to remember and to honor the 24 years that Andrew gave us.
