Review of guidelines for prevention of Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease transmission in medical settings in EU Member States and Norway
Real time quaking-induced conversion analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF RT QuIC) diagnostic technique for the investigation of sporadic CJD workshop
The National Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease (CJD) Research & Surveillance Unit of the University of Edinburgh organized two one-day information workshops on Real time quaking-induced conversion analysis of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF RT QuIC) diagnostic technique for the investigation of sporadic CJD
Annual EuroCJD network meeting 2013
The EuroCJD meetings are held annually/biannually and constitute a valuable platform for: 1) the assessment of the latest scientific and diagnostic findings and developments in the field of CJD; 2) the assessment of their impact on the needs of future surveillance; and 3) sharing country-specific experience, case studies and public health activities.
Diagnostic workshop on Real-time quaking-induced conversion (RT-QuIC) to enhance MS capacity to diagnose CJD
In order to enhance the understanding of the methodology and its consistent application, a training day on the analytical and clinical aspects of analysing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples by RT-QuIC in the investigation of patents with suspected sporadic CJD (sCJD) was held at the National CJD Research &amp; Surveillance Unit (NCJDRSU).
