Detection of Metabolic Markers for Scrapie Infected Sheep Using NMR Spectroscopy


This research project aims to investigate whether a proposed technique could lead to a blood test for scrapie infection in sheep.

More information

A pre-mortem test to detect scrapie in sheep would be a useful tool for scientists studying scrapie and BSE.

<p>It may also be useful within the National Scrapie Plan, which aims to reduce and eradicate scrapie from the UK sheep flock.
