What is the official name of mad cow disease?
Bovine spongiform Encephalopathy BSE for short.
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).
The scientific name for mad cow disease is bovine spongiform encephalopathy, abbreviated BSE.
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.
No. There is no cure for Mad Cow Disease.
No, there is no cure or treatment for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease).
Mad cow disease IS a disease and NOT a virus. It is caused by PRIONS.
Yes, bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was in Europe during the epidemic in the 1980s and 1990s.
People do not get Mad Cow Disease. No human can get mad cow disease but humans can be infected by eating meat from a contaminated cow that has mad cow disease. The disease in people that has been associated with humans is called variant Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (vCJD) that is also a progressive fatal neurological disease.
No. Lyme disease and Mad Cow are two very different diseases. Lyme disease is caused by ticks, and mad cow is caused by a prion.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) was first discovered in the United Kingdom in the early 1980s.

We are aware of mad cow disease
Yes. Prions can cause Mad Cow Disease.
Mad cow disease is an incurable, fatal brain disease that affects cattle and possibly some other animals, such as goats and sheep. The medical name for mad cow disease is bovine spongiform encephalopathy (pronounced: bo-vine spun-jih-form en-seh-fah-la-puh-thee), or BSE for short. It's called mad cow disease because it affects a cow's nervous system, causing a cow to act strangely and lose control of its ability to do normal things, such as walk
There is no cure for this disease. Only way to "cure" mad cow disease is to die.
No. "Mad Cow Disease" is a prion, or misfolded protein, not a parasite.
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.
Mad cow disease is caused by a prion, which is a misfolded protein. It is not alive, but it replicates. Because it is not alive you can not kill it by cooking the infected item. Cows usually contract mad cow disease by being fed the remains of cows that had mad cow disease.
It is commonly called 'Mad Cow Disease'.

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.
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.
You have a 1:1 000 000 chance of contracting "mad cow disease" or CJD (Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, the human form of "Mad Cow disease.") Your chances increase as you get into your 50's and 60's.
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.
There is no such thing as "cow disease" unless you are referring to MAD cow disease, which is something else entirely.
Yes, in a manner of speaking. Mad Cow Disease is a nickname for a more harder-to-pronounce name of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE). Most believe that Mad Cow Disease also applies to humans, but this is a bit of a problem: humans are not cows. Yes they are capable of getting the variant form of this neurologically degrading disease, but that doesn't automatically entitle them to suddenly turn into a cow that is mad. Seriously, humans… Read More
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy...otherwise known as 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.
"Mad Cow Disease" is the term specifically referring to the brain degenerative disease of cattle. Humans get a form of "mad cow" called Crueztfeldt-Jakob Disease. Sheep and goats get Scrapie, and deer and elk get Chronic Wasting Disease.
Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, or BSE for short
At one time, cattle were fed the unwanted parts of ground up sheep. Some of those cows became infected with mad cow disease. Mad cow disease spread to humans. Cattle were also fed parts of ground up cow parts, cows eating ground up cattle were infected with that disease. The breakthrough came in New Guinea. There, women and children would eat the brains of dead people. Men would not. Women and children would catch a… Read More
100 % of all humans that receive mad cow disease die from it. Same with cows.
Mad cow disease cannot be treated. The only solution is eradication to prevent the spread of the disease.
BSE-Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. Mad cow disease CJD-Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. Human version of mad cow disease
To the best of my knowledge, no one has tried to treat bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease). This is because the disease is caused by a prion, a misfolded protein, and there are no medications that can reverse the misfolding.
It's not sad cow disease, it's MAD cow disease. Its a brain disease that can cause irrational behavior in cows.
Yes, that is precisely how you contract mad cow.
Mad Cow Disease is a layman's term for Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, the scientific name for mad cow disease) is the name of a progressive neurologic disease caused by an infectious prion in cattle. When humans become infected by this prion, the syndrome observed in humans is called variant Creutzfeldt-Jacobs Disease (vCJD).
Mad Cow disease isn't contagious, because it can't be spread easily by physical contact. It is however infectious, meaning it can be given from one individual to another. People can contract it if they eat the neural tissue (brain and spinal cord) of an infected cow. Other cows catch mad cow disease the same way. You can't catch mad cow disease by touching an infected cow or it sneezing/bleeding etc. on you.
Mad Cow Disease is also known as Creutzfeldtâ??Jakob disease. It is believed to be caused by prions that are found in contaminated food. Prions do not have a classification.
People do not get Mad Cow Disease. The disease in people that has been associated with humans is called variant Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (vCJD) that is also a progressive fatal neurological disease.
Because cows go kinda nutty or act really aggressive when they are showing the symptoms of Mad Cow Disease.
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.
She had Bright's disease and Mad Cow disease.
It can't. Only a bullet can "treat" Mad cow in animals.
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.
Mad cow disease happens when the proteins in the brain of cow become misfolded. This is called prion. In simple words all proteins have to be folded before they can function and when some proteins in the brain become misfolded, such a state is called prions (misfolding of proteins) and it results in mad cow disease.
