The Human Mad Cow Case

The disease ,linked to eating infected beef was first reported in the United Kingdom in 1996 and since there is no known cure for the degenerative, fatal brain disorder.//
Charlene is the only person living in the United States with the human form of mad cow disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Doctors had given her a few months to live.Since then, her parents said Charlene has not gotten any better nor has she become any worse.However it is remarkable that Charlene is still living today.

Researchers feel that there is still much that they do not know about vCJD, For example, the route of infection, the incubation period, the level of exposure required to cause the disease and the possible role of genetic susceptibility. They feel that it is likely to be some years before they are able to make soundly based predictions about the future course of the disease.

Modern medicine has found no cure yet, but members of Charlene's family said they will not give up. They bathe and feed her, caring for her around the clock.
A neurologist has been giving Charlene hyperbaric treatments -- pumping pure oxygen into her lungs – so that the brain may function better. She gets treatments three times a week and her ne
