Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy: Scrapie in sheep and Mad Cow disease (or Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy)
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.

The central nervous system is affected.
No, marijuana has no effect on BSE transmission, infection or progression.
Mad Cow Disease is a layman's term for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy.
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

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.
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.
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
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 prion that causes bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) is very resistent to degradation. The two methods to destroy the prion are by incineration and by alkaline hydrolysis.
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.
Mad Cow Disease or Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy is NOT caused by a virus, it is a PRION, which is a mis-folded protein.
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

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.
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.
Diseases caused by prions: â€¢ spongiform encephalopothies â€¢ BSE (Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, aka Mad Cow Disease) â€¢ CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease) â€¢ kuru â€¢ scrapie in sheep
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.
It is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system that causes holes in the brain. This disease is untreatable and always ends in death. Prions are the main source of this disease, and only enters into a bovine by it consuming feed that is contaminated with prions. Often feed is contaminated by using animal by product that comes from a cow with BSE that is rendered and put into the food chain.
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.
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.
Viruses are not considered living organisms but can cause disease. Prions that cause Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (Mad Cow disease, aka vCJD- variant Creutzfeld-Jakob disease when in humans) are not living organisms as they are just misfolded protein particles.
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.
Alzheimer's is pathological similar to many diseases. You might be thinking of bovine spongiform encephalopathy or Creutzfeld Jacobs disease (CJD) in humans.
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.
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.
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
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) is caused by a prion, a normal protein that is mis-folded and cannot be broken down by the body.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was first identified in the United Kingdoms (UK). It has since spread to multiple countries throughout Europe.
The full form of BSE is Bombay Stock Exchange Or (and sadly more common) Bovine spongiform encephalopathy better known as "Mad Cow Disease" a degenerative nurological condition caused by prions.
In a matter of speaking, yes. Mis-folded proteins are what cause "Mad Cow Disease," also known as Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy in cattle or Creuztfeldt-Jakobson's Disease in humans.
Thus far, only about 160 people, mostly in Britain, have died of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, which humans get from cows that had bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad cow disease.
