Spread of scrapie to sheep and goats by oral dosing with foetal membranes from scrapie-affected sheep



Spread of scrapie to sheep and goats by oral dosing with foetal membranes from scrapie-affected sheep



Veterinary Record 90(17): 465-468



Foetal membranes were obtained in late pregnancy from six scrapie-affected Swaledale ewes. The membranes from each ewe were used for the experimental inoculation of four sheep and six goats. Two sheep and three goats were injected intracerebrally with an inoculum prepared from a small portion of the membranes; two other sheep and three other goats were fed a suspension of the remainder which ranged in weight from 165 to 650 g.
