CJD death, don't panic

3rd January 2008

New Scientist magazine has reported that a mysterious case of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) has raised fears more people than thought could be at risk.

Its report says the genetic make-up of a 40-year-old woman who may have died from variant CJD was different from all previous patients though researchers at the University College London say it is still too early to say for sure. The government’s advisor on CJD said many cases needed to emerge to confirm a new wave and people should not panic.
