Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) update report 1ST HALF 2005


This six-monthly report provides an update on reports of incidents of potential iatrogenic (healthcare-acquired) exposure to CJD, and on the National Anonymous Tonsil Archive.

For numbers of CJD case reports, readers should consult data provided by the national CJD Surveillance Unit (NCJDSU), Edinburgh (1). The latest quarterly analysis of vCJD reports (onsets and deaths) is also available from the NCJDSU website (2).


Reports of incidents of potential iatrogenic exposure to CJD (September 2004 to February 2005)

During the half-year September 2004 to February 2005, 38 incidents of potential exposure to CJD via surgical instruments were reported to the CJD Incidents Panel (3). Surgical incidents occur when instruments that are considered potentially contaminated with the CJD agent during use on an index patient have been subsequently re-used on other patients. Table 1 shows the number of CJD surgical incidents reported to the CJD Incidents Panel during the four years to August 2004 (4) and between September 2004 and February 2005 by the diagnosis of the index patient (ie, the patient whose healthcare resulted in potential contamination of instruments with the CJD agent).

Greetings,

please note the dramatic increase in

'' Other types of CJD, or 'at risk' of CJD, or CJD type unclear''

you will see that from year 28/08/00- 01/09/04 (4 years) that there were 34 of these type cases '' Other types of CJD, or 'at risk' of CJD, or CJD type unclear''. BUT, in the first half of 2005, there are already 28 cases. we saw the same type 'UNKNOWN' CJD cases in the USA ;

SEE STEADY INCREASE IN SPORADIC CJD IN THE USA FROM 1997 TO 2004. SPORADIC CJD CASES TRIPLED, and that is with a human TSE surveillance system that is terrible flawed. in 1997 cases of the _reported_ cases of cjd were at 54, to 163 _reported_ cases in 2004. see stats here;

p.s. please note the 47 PENDING CASES to Sept. 2005

p.s. please note the 2005 Prion D. total 120(8) 8=includes 51 type pending, 1 TYPE UNKNOWN ???

p.s. please note sporadic CJD 2002(1) 1=3 TYPE UNKNOWN???

p.s. please note 2004 prion disease (6) 6=7 TYPE UNKNOWN???

COULD it be the UK/BSE/nvCJD/vCJD (chosen ones) only theory is finally about to crumble? it's about time!

IT would be most interesting to see what is unclear about the pathology of these 'cjd type unknown' or 'cjd type unclear', and how many years we will have to wait to see exactly what this is all about?
