Mad cow disease safeguards may be inadequate, study suggests
GENEVA - Humans and animals may not be as well protected from mad cow
disease as was hoped, scientists admitted Thursday, after rogue proteins
that cause the deadly illness have been found in organs where they
weren't thought to lurk.

Rogue proteins found in unexpected organs
By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID
ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
WASHINGTON -- Rogue proteins like those that cause mad cow disease -
found previously only in brain, nerve and lymph tissues - have now been
located in the liver, kidney and pancreas in a study of rodents.

Study raises questions about how mad cow infects animals
By SANDRA BLAKESLEE
THE NEW YORK TIMES
Mad cow disease has long been thought to occur in just the brains and
nervous systems of infected animals. But scientists are reporting today
that the proteins thought to cause the disease can travel to other
organs as well.

NEW SCIENTIST
Inflammation lets prions invade "safe" tissue
Inflammation can cause the deformed proteins that cause prion diseases,
such as BSE, to invade organs that normally resist infection. If the new
research in mice holds true for cattle, it could mean that some organs
previously thought to be safe to eat are not - with significant
implications for BSE testing programmes.
