descriptive spatial analysis of the epidemic of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in great britain to june 1997.this was a spatial analysis of the epidemic of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) in great britain, based on agricultural census data collected between 1986 and 1996 and bse case data collected up to june 1997. kernel smoothing techniques were used to plot the distribution of bse-positive cattle holdings per 100 holdings per square kilometre and the distribution of confirmed bse cases per 100 head of cattle per square kilometre. in the early stages of the epidemic reported bse cases were sca ...200011072999
temporal aspects of the epidemic of bovine spongiform encephalopathy in great britain: individual animal-associated risk factors for the disease.the objectives of this study were first to determine the cumulative incidence of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) in the british cattle population from july 1986 to june 1997, secondly, to identify individual animal-associated risk factors that influenced the age of onset of clinical signs in confirmed bse cases, and, thirdly, to assess the effectiveness of the measures introduced to control bse during the epidemic. the analyses were based on the population of british cattle at risk, deriv ...200011083045
