Comparison of scrapie associated fibril detection and histology in the diagnosis of natural sheep scrapie



Comparison of scrapie associated fibril detection and histology in the diagnosis of natural sheep scrapie



Veterinary Record 121(25-26): 591-591



Forty-two sheep brains, 21 from each of 2 sources, were examined for scrapie by both methods. The first group of 5 flocks from the Shetland Islands, mainly Shetland or Shetland X Cheviot, in which scrapie had been diagnosed clinically or histologically in the previous 18 months, yielded 4 ewes clinically affected and 3 with mild hyperaesthesia and trembling; the remaining 14 contacts appeared normal. The second group comprised 21 culled ewes, free of clinical scrapie.
