BSE / TSE

Time and again, prion induced diseases like BSE have caused strong public concern:
Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSE) include the bovine form occurring in cows (BSE or mad-cow-disease), the scrapie-disease in sheep, as well as the human form, the variant-Creutzfeldt-Jakob-Disease (vCJD).
In order to minimize the alimentary and iatrogenic contamination-risk, material with a potential risk of BSE/TSE-infectivity must be eliminated from the human and animal food-chain. Thus, the nature of a substance - synthetic, mineral, vegetable or animal – has to be fully taken into account. Where animal derived material is concerned, careful attention is paid to its origin (animal species, region or country) and inactivating treatment (temperature, pH-value).
