BSE - Panel of scientists require more data to evaluate suspected
case of BSE in a goat

On 25 November, a panel of scientists from the Community Reference
Laboratory (CRL) on TSEs concluded that the data available on a
suspected case of BSE in a goat was incomplete, preventing a definitive
interpretation at this time. After evaluating the scientific evidence,
the scientists recommended additional lines of investigation to be
pursued. They concluded that the necessary data is expected to be
available within approximately two months. The results are becoming
available following a series of confirmatory tests including testing on
mice (a so-called "mouse bioassay"), which takes approximately two
years. The goat was slaughtered in France in October 2002. The European
Commission will update Member States at a scheduled meeting of national
experts on 30 November. Following the findings by a research group in
France of a suspected BSE infection in a goat, the Commission
immediately made the findings public on 28 October 2004 (see
IP/04/1324). The supporting data were submitted on 5 November, as
foreseen by the EU procedure, by the French authorities to the CRL for
TSEs based in Weybridge (UK), for an evaluation by an expert panel.
Although BSE has until now never been found in a goat under natural
conditions, precautionary measures to protect consumers from this
eventuality have been applied in the EU for several years.
