Selection of Swaledale sheep of reduced susceptibility to experimental scrapie



Selection of Swaledale sheep of reduced susceptibility to experimental scrapie



Veterinary Record 116(8): 211-214



A flock of 294 Swaledale sheep was injected with brain tissue from different sources so as to include strains of natural scrapie currently affecting the Swaledale breed. Discounting intercurrent deaths, 85% of the flock developed clinical scrapie within seven years. Scrapie cases fell into distinct early and late groups, occurring at (mean +or- sem) 287 +or- 7 days and 1207 +or- 38 days after injection, respectively.
