  • Chronic Wasting Disease

    Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a transmissible neurological disease of deer and elk that produces small lesions in brains of infected animals. It is characterized by loss of body condition, behavioral abnormalities and death. CWD is classified as a transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE), and is similar to mad cow disease in cattle and scrapie in sheep. Infectious agents of CWD are neither bacteria nor viruses, but are hypothesized to be prions. Prions are infectious proteins without associated nucleic acids.

    The current ongoing research studies in Chronic Wasting Disease include Oral transmission and early lymphoid tropism of chronic wasting disease PrPres in mule deer fawns (Odocoileus hemionus), Transmission of prions from mule deer and elk with chronic wasting disease to transgenic mice expressing cervid PrP, Prions in skeletal muscles of deer with chronic wasting disease etc…

  • Chronic Wasting Disease

    Chronic wasting disease in free-ranging cervids occurs in contiguous areas of Wyoming, Colorado and Nebraska; this is considered the core endemic area for CWD. Distribution of CWD in free-ranging deer, elk, and moose has been determined primarily through necropsy and examination of tissues from animals showing clinical signs suggestive of CWD (clinically targeted surveillance); this is an efficient approach for detecting new foci of infection. Since 2000, CWD has been detected in free-ranging cervids in several additional states.
