Taiwan reports suspected case of mad-cow disease from placenta

Aug 30, 2007, 10:44 GMT


Taipei - Taiwan health authorities said on Thursday that they are investigating a suspected human case of mad-cow disease contracted from taking injections of bovine placenta.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said it needs further tests to determine if the patient, reported by the National Chengkung University Hospital, has contracted Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, or mad-cow disease.

'There has never been a case of contracting mad-cow disease from taking placenta shots. Taiwan allows placenta only in cosmetic products, not in shots. So if the patient took placenta shots, the shots were illegal,' CDC Deputy Director Chou Chih-hao told reporters.

Sellers of illegal medicine can face a maximum 140,000 Taiwan dollar (4,000 US dollar) fine or a 10-year prison sentence. If the medicine has resulted in someone's death, the seller can face life sentence.

The National Chengkung University Hospital, in Tainan, south Taiwan, admitted Thursday that it has reported a suspected case of mad cow disease to the CDC.

According to the hospital, a patient developed signs of mad-cow disease 10 months ago and has now lost all physical functions except the eyes.

The hospital, at the order of CDC, has refused to release other information about the patient including gender.

Taiwan press quoted the patient's family members as saying that the patient had never gone abroad and never liked to eat the innards of animals, but had been taking bovine-placenta shots for a long time to look young.

Despite Taiwan's ban on placenta shots, many Taiwanese get the expensive shots from private clinics or go on 'placenta tours' to receive the shots in Japan. They believe that taking placenta shots on a regular basis can improve health and preserve youth.

Greetings ALL,

was reading a 'smut' magazine about the 'babes'
and came across this article about the different
movie stars 'fat lips' (collagen injections).
something in the article caught my eye. ONE
was Collagen and the other was HASK PLACENTA
No-Rinse Treatment. (if containing animal tissues,
and then running down into the eye's, seems
like a potential transmission route, if you
consider kuru and the fact transmission of
that TSE agent via topical applications {rubbing
of organs etc on skin, cuts etc...TSS}).

""Attention, Goldie Hawn: You might want to forget
about more collagen infections for that full-lipped
look. Collagen for the procedure usually comes
from cows -- as in "mad cow disease". So what's a
girl to do? Some docs are using an acid found in
roosters' combs instead of collagen. Others use
collagen from 'ELITE' herds that don't mix with
common bovines. And one scientist is awaiting
approval for a human collagen from the foreskin
of infant boys -- further proof that beauty is
only skin deep""-- 'The National Enquirer' 5/6/01

are these babes in far a 'rude' awakening. firstly,
these so called 'ELITE' herds they speak of, are
what they call, 'tissue donor herds', that are
suppose to be fed 'only' certain products that
_do not_ include ruminant feed of any sort.
AND from the exact question i asked at the
infamous '50 STATE EMERGENCY CONFERENCE CALL'
of Jan, 9, 2001, sadly we find, there is
absolutley, NO SUCH THING. It was all a joke.
The 'partial' ruminant to ruminant feed ban
of August 4, 1997, never was enforced, and most
knew nothing about it, and/or chose to ignore
it.

BSE110/1 0180

RUMINANT-DERIVED MATERIAL IN COSMETICS

The Department of Health wishes to reinforce the advice given to the
Cosmetics Industry in February 1990 (ref.)

It is possible that some ruminant-derived
materials are being incorporated into
cosmetics or beauty treatments which are
then marketed as 'natural
products.

The particular materials that should not
under _ANY_ circumstances be used in the
manufacturer of cosmetics or beauty treatments
are:

1. bovine (cattle)-derived offals, or proteins
derived from these offals. These offals are:
brain, spinal cord, spleen, thymus, tonsils,
intestines of Bovine offal (prohibition)
regulations

2. ovine (sheep)-derived offals and ovine placenta.

In view of the current uncertainty about the
incidence of infection with spongiform
encephalopathy agents it is probably advisable
that these recommendations apply to the above
ruminant-derived materials of ANY COUNTRY OF ORIGIN...

31 October 1991

91/10.31/9.1

It also emerged from the 16- volume
report of Lord Phillips, released on
Thursday, that people who bought anti-aging
cream may have exposed themselves to BSE
unwittingly.

The report describes their use as a potential
pathway to infection because some creams may have
included cattle brain placenta.

Greetings List Members,

Looking further into this, seems Pandora's Box
just gets bigger and bigger...

Intergen.Biomanufacturing.Corporation

Catalase,.Lyophilized.(Liver)

http://strategis.ic.gc.ca/SSG/bt00255e.html

BOVINE PLASMA DIAGNOSTIC BASE™ (PDB)

Intergen's Bovine Plasma Diagnostic Base™ (PDB) is an amber to light
brown, clear, non-sterile 2X (14% protein) solution, which is supplied
frozen. PDB is a cost-effective alternative to human serum or human
defibrinated plasma for preparing standards, controls and calibrators
for a variety of clinical diagnostic assays. PDB is available in large
batch sized to ensure consistency in final formulations.

FEATURES:

Intergen's PDB is prepared from defibrinated bovine plasma and
manufactured under GMP guidelines at an FDA registered facility. The raw
material is obtained from USDA-inspected abattoirs in the United States,
which is considered to be free from
BSE. Intergen's bovine PDB affords high optical clarity, excellent
filterability, and minimal background interference.

APPLICATIONS:

PDB is used in a variety of clinical assays in the preparation of
standards, controls and calibrators. This diagnostic matrix has been
accepted and used by major producers of diagnostic reagents for many
years. PDB, supplied as a 2X protein concentrate, offers maximum
flexibility to the end user for independent adjustment of analytes.
Intergen may also produce custom formulations and analyte-adjusted
material on customer request.

or

BSE Validation Study:
The manufacturing processes for several of Intergen's Bovine Albumins
and for Aprotinin have been shown to remove or inactivate a model
spongiform encephalopathy agent spiked at high titre. The clearance was
demonstrated in three separate manufacturing steps for each process,
with overall reduction factors in excess of 16 log10.

'jimmany cricket'. can you believe that statement?
don't get me wrong, i do realize that there are many products using
bovine derived tissues in
pharmaceuticals, blood products and vaccines
that are needed, but what is NOT needed is
the stupidity that comes with the greed $$$

With that said, how does this particular company,
from MANY out there, how do they control
cross-contamination between products from
TSEs ??? It seems the chance of cross-contamination with these
different
products, and the other different 'BLOOD'
products they manufacture, would be _great_.

i give you this data (below) as proof, they are so full of B.S.eee, you
can smell it all they way in Texas.

speak of???
