Prion Disease

Prion diseases, also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), are a group of rare and fatal neurological disorders that affect humans and animals. These diseases are characterized by the accumulation of abnormal proteins called prions in the brain, which lead to the degeneration of nerve cells and the development of sponge-like holes in brain tissue. Unlike most diseases, prion diseases can spread by transmitting misfolded prion proteins from one individual to another, either through contaminated tissues or genetic mutations. This unique ability to self-propagate makes prion diseases particularly challenging to treat and control.
