Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 07/17/06 Letter to the Editor: In regard to Leigh Forde’s letter (The Daily News, July 10): I disagree whole-heartedly. My mother died right here, and UTMB autopsied her along with Case Western Reserve University and confirmed an exceedingly rare strain of sporadic Creutzfeldt Jakob disease, i.e., the Heidenhain Variant Creutzfeldt Jakob disease. As we speak this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put out a new study about a new strain of atypical Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy in the bovine called Bovine Amyloidotic Spongiform Encephalopathy that is not similar to the New Variant Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease United Kingdom strain in humans, but is very similar to the sporadic Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease.
