WHAT DOES TRANSMISSIBLE SPONGIFORM ENCEPHALOPATHY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathy

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, also known as prion diseases, are a group of progressive conditions that affect the brain and nervous system of many animals, including humans. According to the most widespread hypothesis they are transmitted by prions, though some other data suggest an involvement of a Spiroplasma infection. Mental and physical abilities deteriorate and a myriad of tiny holes appear in the cortex causing it to appear like a sponge when brain tissue obtained at autopsy is examined under a microscope. The disorders cause impairment of brain function, including memory changes, personality changes and problems with movement that worsen over time. Prion diseases of humans include classic Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease, Gerstmann–Sträussler–Scheinker syndrome, fatal familial insomnia, kuru and the recently discovered Variably protease-sensitive prionopathy. These conditions form a spectrum of diseases with overlapping signs and symptoms. Unlike other kinds of infectious disease that are spread by microbes, the infectious agent in TSEs is believed to be a type of protein called prion protein.
