Abstract

Procedures for discriminating scrapie from bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in sheep are relevant to ascertain whether BSE has entered the sheep population. This study was aimed at investigating whether the suitability of an official EU discriminative method is affected by the sheep PrP genotype and route of infection.
