ProMetic announces Octapharma publication of PRDT'S prion removal resin in Octaplas(R) manufacturing process at 30th International Congress of the International Society for Blood Transfusion meeting in Macao SAR, China
Date:6/10/2008

st wave of vCJD cases has peaked, scientists remain concerned that other peaks will follow. This is because the first cases were from a single genetic subgroup of the prion protein that appears to have a shorter incubation time than other prion genotypes. Infections in these other genotypes may still be incubating. A survey of surgically removed tissues analyzed for abnormal prion protein estimated a minimum of 3,800 asymptomatic vCJD carriers in the UK. The number could be much larger. vCJD carriers appear normal and donate blood with the same frequency as the general population. So far there have been four recognized cases of transmission of vCJD by transfusion of blood donated by persons incubating the disease. Transfusion transmission appears to be highly efficient in humans and animals. The 2006 National CJD Surveillance Unit report concluded that "the incidence of vCJD may increase again, particularly if different genetic subgroups are found but with longer incubation periods". Abnormal prion proteins are an essential component of vCJD infectivity and may be the only component. The adsorption of prion proteins by PRDT ligands removes vCJD infectivity.
