INIA-CISA and IRTA-CReSA proceed with the prion research project financed by the Fundació la Marató de TV3
Analyzing a cerebrospinal fluid protein will help diagnose and predict the clinical evolution of patients with prion diseases
Prion diseases or transmissible spongiform encephalopathies involve a quite diverse spectrum of hosts, from domestic animals such as cows with mad cow disease (aka Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, BSE), wild animals such as cervids with Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and even people who may suffer from Creutzfeld Jackob Disease.
REDPRION is launched, a project to reinforce the control of human and animal prion diseases on both sides of the Pyrenees
A consortium consisting of five research centers and two companies from France and Spain launches the REDPRION cross-border Pyrenean project, worth € 2 million to develop innovative diagnostic tools and to identify therapeutic compounds for patients affected by a prion disease.
