My mother was murdered by what I call corporate and political homicide i.e. FOR PROFIT! she died from a rare phenotype of CJD i.e. the Heidenhain Variant of Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease i.e. sporadic, simply meaning from unknown route and source. I have simply been trying to validate her death DOD 12/14/97 with the truth. There is a route, and there is a source. There are many here in the USA. WE must make CJD and all human TSE, of all age groups 'reportable' Nationally and Internationally, with a written CJD questionnaire asking real questions pertaining to route and source of this agent. Friendly fire has the potential to play a huge role in the continued transmission of this agent via the medical, dental, and surgical arena. We must not flounder any longer. ...TSS

Incidence of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease diagnoses and deaths in the UK January 1994 – December 2011

Incidence of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease diagnoses and deaths in the UK January 1994 – December 2011

Summary
In 2011 there were two new diagnosis of vCJD and five deaths. One of the new diagnoses related to a death in 2008. This brings the total number of cases reported in the UK to 176 of whom all 176 have died.
Results from modelling the underlying incidence of diagnoses and deaths indicate that the epidemic reached a peak in about the year 2000 when there were 27 diagnoses and 28 deaths and has since declined to a current incidence of about 1 to 2 diagnoses/death per year. There is evidence that the epidemic curve is skewed with an extended tail. Looking at onsets shows similar results with evidence of an extended tail.
An analysis that looked at deaths by birth cohort (pre 1970, 1970s, 1980s) showed that the shape of the epidemic differs between cohorts, mainly due to the fact that deaths of individuals born in the 1980s were only seen from 1999 onwards. It is important to note that although a peak in cases has been passed, it is possible that there will be future peaks, possibly in other genetic groups. To date, however, there is no evidence of a second wave.
There is also the possibility of ongoing person to person spread as seen with four cases of transfusion association vCJD infection to date, who received blood in 1999 or earlier from donors who were later diagnosed with clinical vCJD. Three of these individuals developed vCJD (one diagnosed in 2003 and two in 2006), whilst the fourth died from causes unrelated to vCJD, but was found on post mortem examination to have abnormal prion protein present in the spleen and a lymph node.
 
 
 
 
 
 
SEE STEADY INCREASE OF SPORADIC CJD IN THE U.K. TO 2011, from 28 in 1990, to 90 cases in 2011, the highest number to date in any given year, for sporadic CJD. remember, sporadic CJD is not a single strain, but many strains of unknown, undocumented origin, to date. ...TSS
 
 
 
 
 
 
***Also, a link is suspected between atypical BSE and some apparently sporadic cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans. These atypical BSE cases constitute an unforeseen first threat that could sharply modify the European approach to prion diseases.
