Greetings,


IN digging deeper and deeper into this saga, I find this ;


Scrapie Eradication Program
Update


Dr. Alecia Larew Naugle
National Scrapie Program,
Associate Coordinator/National
Epidemiologist
USDA APHIS VS NCAHP

Scrapie Program Update
NIAA 2007


snip...


Nor98-like Scrapie Case

• March 16, 2007 regular biannual report to the OIE included
one confirmed case of scrapie consistent with Nor98
• This is the first time Nor98-like scrapie has been found in the
United States, although it has been widely reported in other
parts of the world


Nor98-like Scrapie Case
Case History

• Sample collected from an aged, mottle-faced ewe at
slaughter (RSSS)
• The positive ewe was traced to a commercial flock. The flock
of origin has been quarantined
• The positive sheep was of a susceptible genotype (AA at
codon 136, FL at codon 141, RR at codon 154 and QQ at
codon 171), commonly called an AA/QQ

SO, it seems it was reported to OIE, but just not openly on there weekly
update, like some of the other countries that have there documented Nor-98
atypical scrapie and other TSE cases updated there, or i missed it?


http://www.oie.int/wahid-prod/public.php?page=weekly_report_index&admin=0


NOW, since that 1st case was reported ''the first time Nor98-like scrapie
was been found in the United States, although it has been widely reported in
other parts of the world'' we have now documented five cases in five
different states so far in 2007 in the USA. NOT one mention of it on the OIE
weekly update page?

I don't understand this OIE Global Animal Health Initiative: The Way Forward
animal health reporting system ???
