Is spongiform encephalopathy a virus?
The transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (BSE, CWD, kuru, etc.) are not viruses - they are infectious mis-folded proteins called prions.
Mad Cow Disease or Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy is NOT caused by a virus, it is a PRION, which is a mis-folded protein.

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE, occurs only at a molecular level in one species, as any other communicable disease does. It is also known as Mad Cow Disease.
bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cows.

There are a range of transmissible spongiform ensephalopathies that affect the brain or other neural tissue. Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease) Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease Chronic wasting disease Scrapie Feline spongiform encephalopathy Kuru Fatal familial insomnia Gerstmann-StrÃ¤ussler-Scheinker syndrome
A prion disease (transmissible spongiform encephalopathy) is a disease caused by prion aggregations. Some prion diseases include bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease), kuru, scrapie, chronic wasting disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

No, marijuana has no effect on BSE transmission, infection or progression.
Mad Cow Disease is a layman's term for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy.
Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy is the same name as "Mad Cow disease" in cattle. There is also CJD or Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease in humans; Scrapie in sheep; Chronic Wasting Disease or CWD in deer; Tranmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy in other ruminants.
Spongiform can be broken down into sponge and form, so that means it has a sponge like quality. In terms of spongiform encephalopathy it means that the brain has the sponge-like quality of being full of small holes.
No, BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy, the scientific name for mad cow disease) is generally thought to be caused by a prion, a misfolded protein. There are some theories that BSE could be caused by a virino, a very small virus, but this is not the currently accepted research.

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy...otherwise known as BSE or mad cow disease.
Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, Scrapie, Chronic Wasting Disease, and Cruetzfeldt-Jakob Disease.
No, there is no cure or treatment for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease).
The human form of the disease is called variant Creutzfeld-Jacobs Disease, or vCJD.
The scientific name for mad cow disease is bovine spongiform encephalopathy, abbreviated BSE.
There are multiple prion diseases, including bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or "mad cow disease."
The term "mad cow disease" was a field name for the disease until laboratory testing gave it the more descriptive name of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (based on the signature lesions in the brain tissues). Media outlets preferred the term "mad cow disease" because it was more sensational and easier for the general public to understand.
One disease of cattle caused by a prion is BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) aka Mad Cow Disease

West Nile Virus causes disease such as encephalopathy. The virus is carried by mosquitoes.
Yes, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was in Europe during the epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s.
I don't know about "short", but Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy is the official name. It's often abbreviated BSE, which might be what you were looking for.
Mad cow disease is scientifically known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE for short. BSE is caused by a mis-folded protein in the brain and spinal cord of cattle, so it is actually none of the above (virus, bacteria or protist). Prions are a novel form of disease infection distinct from the traditional three infectious routes identified in the early 1900s.

If you mean what it is short for, nothing, mad cow disease is a nickname. The real name of mad cow disease is Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE).
NO. Mad cow disease (more properly called Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy) is caused by a prion which is a mis-folded protein, not a fungus.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was first discovered in the United Kingdom in the early 1980s.
The popular name for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is mad cow disease. While this disease can be a food-borne illness, international food safety agencies have put regulations and laws in place to prevent the spread of BSE. Because of this, the number of human infections with BSE (called variant Creutsfeld-Jacob disease or vCJD) has been dropping every year throughout the world.
Cows become infected with the prion that causes bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) by ingesting it. The prion is a misfolded protein found primarily in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). When a cow died with BSE and was rendered (basically cooked down into unrecognizable amino acids), the prion was not broken down. This rendered bovine protein was then added back to cow's rations to provide them a balanced nutritional diet - but it… Read More
There is no medication for mad cow disease (also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy). Cows which suffer from this disease will die, they cannot be cured.
No, that is a common misconception. Mad cow disease is only caused by beef that is contaminated with prions from a cow that has BSE or Bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
Alzheimer's is pathological similar to many diseases. You might be thinking of bovine spongiform encephalopathy or Creutzfeld Jacobs disease (CJD) in humans.
There are no treatments for BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy, the scientific name for mad cow disease) and there are no cures - it is a progressive neurologic disorder that is 100% fatal.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) cannot be treated or cured - it is progressive and 100% fatal in all cattle that contract it.
Gonorrhea is one, Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy is another. Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacteria, whilst BSE is a neurological diseased, thought to be caused by Prions.
MCD is transferred if you eat beef that is contaminated with prions from a cow that has BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy). For cows, it is spread by eating feed that contains contaminated animal by-product.
Goats and sheep can get scrapie, a transmissable spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). Other animals can get TSE's but they are called different names eg Mad Cow Disease etc
he U.S. government slaughtered hundreds of cattle with possible ties to the infected cow and also recalled about 10,400 pounds of raw beef
