Greetings again Dr. Freas et al at FDA, CBER, Honorable Phyllis Fong of OIG, and others,
I apologize for stringing this submission out in parts, but it's just the way the data is coming.
I thought this most important, that all involved should have this study in full for the upcoming meetings on

Clinical presentation and pre-mortem diagnosis of variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease associated with blood transfusion: a case report

Summary
Background
Concerns have been raised that variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) might be transmissible by blood transfusion. Two cases of prion infection in a group of known recipients of transfusion from donors who subsequently developed vCJD were identified post-mortem and reported in 2004. Another patient from this at-risk group developed neurological signs and was referred to the National Prion Clinic.

Methods
The patient was admitted for investigation and details of blood transfusion history were obtained from the National Blood Service and Health Protection Agency; after diagnosis of vCJD, the patient was enrolled into the MRC PRION-1 trial. When the patient died, brain and tonsil tissue were obtained at autopsy and assessed for the presence of disease-related PrP by immunoblotting and immunohistochemistry.

Findings
A clinical diagnosis of probable vCJD was made; tonsil biopsy was not done. The patient received experimental therapy with quinacrine, but deteriorated and died after a clinical course typical of vCJD. Autopsy confirmed the diagnosis and showed prion infection of the tonsils.

Interpretation
This case of transfusion-associated vCJD infection, identified ante-mortem, is the third instance from a group of 23 known recipients who survived at least 5 years after receiving a transfusion from donors who subsequently developed vCJD. The risk to the remaining recipients of such tranfusions is probably high, and these patients should be offered specialist follow-up and investigation. Tonsil biopsy will allow early and pre-symptomatic diagnosis in other iatrogenically exposed individuals at high risk, as in those with primary infection with bovine spongiform encephalopathy prions.

JOURNAL OF NEUROLOGY
MARCH 26, 2003


RE-Monitoring the occurrence of emerging forms of Creutzfeldt-Jakob

disease in the United States


Email Terry S. Singeltary:


flounder@wt.net

I lost my mother to hvCJD (Heidenhain Variant CJD). I would like to

comment on the CDC's attempts to monitor the occurrence of emerging

forms of CJD. Asante, Collinge et al [1] have reported that BSE

transmission to the 129-methionine genotype can lead to an alternate

phenotype that is indistinguishable from type 2 PrPSc, the commonest

sporadic CJD. However, CJD and all human TSEs are not reportable

nationally. CJD and all human TSEs must be made reportable in every

state and internationally. I hope that the CDC does not continue to

expect us to still believe that the 85%+ of all CJD cases which are

sporadic are all spontaneous, without route/source. We have many TSEs in

the USA in both animal and man. CWD in deer/elk is spreading rapidly and

CWD does transmit to mink, ferret, cattle, and squirrel monkey by

intracerebral inoculation. With the known incubation periods in other

TSEs, oral transmission studies of CWD may take much longer. Every

victim/family of CJD/TSEs should be asked about route and source of this

agent. To prolong this will only spread the agent and needlessly expose

others. In light of the findings of Asante and Collinge et al, there

should be drastic measures to safeguard the medical and surgical arena

from sporadic CJDs and all human TSEs. I only ponder how many sporadic

CJDs in the USA are type 2 PrPSc?

November 29, 2006
Greetings FDA, DHH, Dr. Freas, and Dr. Harvey et al,
a kind and warm Holiday Greetings to you all.
i kindly wish to submit the following to the TSE advisory committee for the meeting December 15, 2006,
about the assessment for potential exposure to vCJD in human plasma-derived antihemophilic factor (FVIII) products
manufactured from U.S. plasma donors and related communication material ;
http://a257.g.akamaitech.net/7/257/2422/01jan20061800/
edocket.access.gpo.gov/2006/E6-20251.htm

i see the media picked up on this as a 'low risk', from what the gov. agency
perceived to be to them;


http://www.newsday.com/
news/health/ats-ap_health14nov27,0,7955259.story?
coll=ny-leadhealthnews-headlines

however, i seem to disagree. from my primitive ciphering, i see it another
way. this is a huge catastrophic risk. 3 in 160 is 1.9%. so call that 2%
which is 1 in 50 or twenty per thousand or 20,000 per million. also, what
about the mixed genotypes/mixed susceptibility? what about the silent
carriers that donated tainted blood? what about the sporadic CJDs of UNKNOWN
strain or phenotype? this risk assessment is just more BSe to me. just
another in a long line of industry fed crap. i pray that my assessment is
the one that is wrong. but it is THEY who roll the dice with your life. it
is THEY who refuse to regulate an industry that has run amok. just from a
recall aspect of potentially tainted blood, and these are just recent recalls ;

Greetings again Dr. Freas et al at FDA,

WITH new atypical TSE in the bovine, in the sheep, goat, and humans,
and the fact that the new BASE TSE in cattle being very very similar to sporadic
CJD, rather than the nvCJD, the fact that now science showing the TSE agent
of the atypical cattle in Japan showing infectivity other than CNS tissue,
the fact that the latest Texas mad cow and the recent Alabama mad cow both
being of the atypical strain, it would seem prudent to include all human TSE
in the blood ban, in my opinion. with sporadic CJD, you have many strains and
or phenotypes, some of which are 'UNKNOWN', so we do not know how this
will transmit, what tissues are infectious and or if blood transmits. that's the bottom
line, however it has been reported that the BASE is more virulent to humans. With
this, and the fact that sporadic CJD has tripled in the past few years or so, i see it
as being prudent to take serious and immediate action ;
