THE TSE COMMUNITY REFERENCE LABORATORY EXPERT
GROUP ON STRAINS:
Progress report on actions from the meeting on 25th
November, 2004, Rue Froissart.
Report drafted by Marion Simmons and John Spiropoulos using data and
analysis supplied by VLA Weybridge, IAH (NPU) Edinburgh, AFSSA and
INRA.
Executive summary
These investigations have been pursued by the transfer of materials from
experimentally inoculated mice to the Veterinary Laboratories Agency and the
Institute for Animal Health, for blind peer review. In addition,
experimental
caprine BSE was provided to AFSSA by the IAH for further Western
immunoblotting of the suspect sample alongside appropriate controls.
Codes for mouse brain groups were held by a third party (Professor Bostock)
so that all examinations at the VLA and IAH were blinded. Results were
reported to Professor Bostock, who broke the codes and reported the
outcome to the VLA for compilation of this report. The report is therefore
compiled by the VLA on behalf of the Expert Group, and has been agreed
with Professor Bruce (IAH).
A more comprehensive report of our findings has been provided to the French
scientists who submitted the samples.
Conclusion
Our findings, and interpretation of the western immunoblotting work done at
AFSSA, support the conclusion that the French caprine isolate (CH636) is
likely to contain the BSE strain.
