State-of-the-art review of goat TSE in the European Union, with special emphasis on PRNP genetics and epidemiology. Vet. Res. 40: 48, G. Vaccari et al. (2009), freely available.
This summer (2009) saw the publication of an up-to-date overview that provides all the current data on transmissible spongiform encephalopthies (TSEs) in goats. TSEs are also known by the short name of prion diseases. In ruminants these diseases include mad cow disease (BSE) in cattle, scrapie in sheep and goats, and in North America, chronic wasting disease in deer. Here we present a short description of the main information provided in this article, which was published by our group in Veterinary Research, 2009, 40:48 under the European-funded GoatBSE and TSEgoat projects.

EFSA Scientific opinion on goat TSE resistance, Nov 2009
Written by Jan Langeveld   
Wednesday, 18 November 2009 15:07

On November 2009, an opinion of EFSA was published on TSE resistance in goat, with attention for whole Europe. Title: "Scientific Opinion on genetic TSE resistance in goats in all European Union Member States". Published on line: EFSA Journal 2009; 7(11):1371
Again, several GoatBSE consortium members have contributed to this opnion written by the Panel of Biological Hazards.

Interesting outcome of the existing scientific progress is, that there is reason for optimism to have a genetical programme available in the future to eradicate TSEs in goats.

Also this year there a workshop on TSEs in domestic and wild animals will be organised during the annual TSE conference. This workshop is an initiative of EU funded projects NeuroPrion-TSEgoat and GoatBSE. It will be held on 22 September 2009 one day before the annual Prion conference Prion2009, this year in Porto Carras, Greece
The proceedings will be published on this website and the neuroprion newsletter website (see under "Prion2009 special  edition Newsletter").

The consortium has written a state-of-the-art review on goat TSE in the Euopean Uninion, with special emphasis on PRNP genetics and epidemilogy. It is now public and accessible for free at the site of the journal Veterinary Research. This review has been initiated from the NeuroPrion goat-TSE network project and the project goatBSE (FOOD-CT-2006-036353).
A less scientific abstract of this review is currently on its way and will be published on our site. We thank Gabriele, Cindy, Wilfred and Jan for pushing this into an excellent reference work on this subject.
