zed 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.
