Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease surveillance in Australia. January 1970 to
December 2003.

Klug GM, Lewis V, Boyd A, Lee JS, Masters CL, Collins SJ.

Australian National Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Registry, Melbourne,
Victoria.

The Australian National Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Registry (ANCJDR)
was established by the Commonwealth Government in October 1993 in
response to the recognition of four probable human pituitary hormone
related Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) deaths. An inquiry into CJD
in Australia and the use of human pituitary hormones under the
Australian Human Pituitary Hormone Program suggested the expansion
of some activities of the Registry to include retrospective case
ascertainment from 1 January 1970. In parallel with monitoring
possible medically acquired (iatrogenic) cases of CJD, the ANCJDR
prospectively monitors and investigates all suspect cases of
transmissible spongiform encephalopathies occurring within the
states and territories of Australia, including sporadic and
familial, and the potential occurrence of variant CJD. The ANCJDR
also actively participates in an international surveillance
consortium. This brief report summarises methods of classification
and ascertainment as well as current epidemiological findings and
new surveillance techniques that are being adopted to improve case
ascertainment.
