what is the importance of prion disease



  1. 0 Votes

    From what I’ve read, the prion diseases are a large group of related neurodegenerative conditions which affect both animals and humans. All prion diseases are fatal with no effective treatment. However, currently the importance of these diseases lies in the current understanding of their pathogenesis. This has recently led to the promise of effective therapeutic interventions in the near future.
