Canada gives test timeline for suspect mad cow


WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Dec 30 (Reuters) - Canada's suspect mad cow was first sampled by a veterinarian on an Alberta farm on Dec. 17, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency said on Thursday.

Following is a chronology of the case, as detailed by the CFIA during a news conference on Thursday:

* Dec. 17: Private veterinarian takes sample from 10-year-old cow on an Alberta farm identified as a "downer" or nonambulatory animal -- one of the groups considered at a higher risk for carrying mad cow disease.

* Dec. 23: Sample arrives at provincial laboratory in Edmonton, Alberta, for testing.

* Dec. 28: Lab runs duplicate tests from Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. > on sample. Results are "non-negative."

* Dec. 29: Lab repeats duplicate Bio-Rad tests, with same results.

* Dec. 29: Lab forwards results to Canadian Food Inspection Agency laboratory in Winnipeg, which runs duplicate rapid tests using kit from Prionics AG. Tests are again positive.

* Dec. 29: CFIA advises U.S. Department of Agriculture of preliminary results before the USDA announces plans to relax a ban on imports of young, live Canadian cattle.

* Dec. 30: CFIA issues news release on preliminary results.

* Dec. 30: CFIA begins definitive laboratory immunohistochemistry test on sample in Winnipeg lab with results expects as early as Saturday but more likely on Monday.
