Transmission of prion infectivity from blood by peptoid-conjugated beads

bioRxiv

Apr 15, 2019

Simone HornemannAdriano Aguzzi

Abstract

Prions cause transmissible infectious diseases in humans and animals and have been found to be transmissible by blood transfusion even in the presymptomatic stage. However, the concentration of prions in body fluids such as blood and urine is extremely low, and therefore direct diagnost...read more
