Description:

The discovery of a cow carrying BSE in the United States has reenergized the public's interest in such topics. This site, an offshoot of the WHO site devoted to diseases, offers a good overview of the disease and its similar nature to that of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease -- the form of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy that can affect humans. Also of note at this site is a exceptionally comprehensive resources section that offers links to publications, articles, and websites devoted to related topics and information. For a quick snapshot of the disease, check out the WHO fact sheet on BSE, located at the bottom of this main page.
