Meatingplace: BSE Case Possibly A New Variant



Dr. John Clifford, head veterinarian for the United States Department of Agriculture, indicated that the latest animal suspected of infection by bovine spongiform encephalopathy might have been infected by a new strain of the disease.

"The IHC (immunohistochemistry) test, besides looking at the location of the brain stem, is also doing a staining technique to identify abnormal prion proteins," he said during a press conference Wednesday afternoon. "In this case, we had some staining, but the staining did not match up with what they would typically see in a BSE case. It didn't have the normal distribution it would see within the samples."
