Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report here PrP-immunohistochemistry performed on brains from CJD cases from Poland. Only one of five definitive CJD cases exhibited typical PrP-immunoreactive kuru-like plaques and this was case of a short duration. We thus confirm the low frequency of PrP plaques in CJD of Eastern and Central European origin.
