surviving bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse): farm women's discussion of the effects of bse on food provisioning practices.the economic vulnerability of beef and other farm families following the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) crisis in canada poses a risk to their household food provisioning practices. the purpose of this study was to examine the effects of bse since 2003 on the food provisioning practices of beef and other farm families in three canadian provinces. semi-structured, face-to-face, in-depth interviews were conducted with 22 farm women (6 in alberta, 6 in ontario, and 10 in nova scotia) that f ...200919697243
the first canadian indigenous case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) has molecular characteristics for prion protein that are similar to those of bse in the united kingdom but differ from those of chronic wasting disease in captive elk and deer.brain tissue from a case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) from alberta was subjected to a western immunoblotting technique to ascertain the molecular profile of any disease-specific, abnormal prion protein, that is, prion protein that is protease-resistant (prp(res)). this technique can discriminate between isolates from bse, ovine scrapie, and sheep experimentally infected with bse. isolates of brain tissue from the bse case in alberta, 3 farmed elk with chronic wasting disease (cwd) f ...200415532881
