Quinacrine has been reported as an antiprion agent and proposed as an
immediately applicable treatment for Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).
The authors report the results of an open compassionate procedure to
which 32 CJD patients had access. In some genotypic subgroups, a slight
but nonsignificant increase in survival was observed, likely due to
biased inclusion of long-term surviving patients. There was no
pathologic evidence of a beneficial effect of quinacrine treatment.

Netherlands: possibly over 300 cases missed
( from Jan Braakman)
Lelystad - Over 300 BSE infected cows may have entered the food chain in
the Netherlands, according to a statistical study done by the Central
Institute for Animal Disease Control (CIDC) in Lelystad, Netherlands.
The Dutch found 77 cases since 1997. Most of them since the
implementation of the fast test, in 2001. The study says that there may
have been more than 400 affected animals, born since 1993.
Since 1996 the risk organs of bovines are being removed in
slaughterhouses. The BSE-infected cows did not cause a serious threat -
if any - to the public health, CIDC says.

Rapid City Journal : Vet: Feed ban should stop BSE
By Steve Miller, Journal Staff Writer
South Dakota state veterinarian Sam Holland says that the longer feed
restrictions to prevent the spread of mad cow disease remain in effect
in the U.S. and Canada, the less likely more mad cow cases will be found
in either country.
