BSE belongs to the sphere of types of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE), which can develop in humans due to misfolded protein bodies, so-called prions (PrPsc). By now, there is no longer any scientific doubt that the Creutzfeld Jakob Disease (vCJD), which occurs in humans, constitutes the human form of BSE. According to the current standard of knowledge, all forms of the TSE diseases are resistant to therapy and generally terminal. Hence, the most effective possibility to date to protect human beings from the transmission of a prion-based disease is the elimination of the respective animal tissue rated as highly infectious, the so-called specified risk material (SRM), from the production of food.
