Prions, prions, prions by Stanley B Prusiner( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and French and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A series of remarkable discoveries in the past three decades have led to the molecular and genetic characterization of the transmissible pathogen causing scrapie in animals and a quartet of human illnesses: kuru, Jakob-Creutzfeld disease, Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker disease, and fatal familial insomnia. To distinguish this pathogen from viruses and viroids, the term "prion" was introduced to emphasize its proteinaceous and infectious nature. Stanley B. Prusiner, editor of this volume, was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his pioneering discovery of prions. The book reviews advances in studies of prions, which - as considereable evidence indicates - are novel pathogens composed only of protein

In 1997, Stanley B. Prusiner received a Nobel Prize, the world's most prestigious award for achievement in physiology or medicine. That he was the sole recipient of the award for the year was entirely appropriate. His struggle to identify the agent responsible for ravaging the brains of animals suffering from scrapie and mad cow disease, and of humans with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, had been waged largely alone and in some cases in the face of strenuous disagreement. In this book, Prusiner tells the remarkable story of his discovery of prions - infectious proteins that replicate and cause disease but surprisingly contain no genetic material - and reveals how superb and meticulous science is actually practiced with talented teams of researchers who persevere. He recounts the frustrations and rewards of years of research and offers fascinating portraits of his peers as they raced to discover the causes of fatal brain diseases. Prusiner's hypothesis, once considered heresy, now stands as accepted science and the basis for developing diagnoses and eventual cures. He closes with a meditation on the legacy of his discovery: What will it take to cure Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's and other devastating diseases of the brain?

Prion diseases by Harry F Baker( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Prion Diseases leading researchers and clinicians describe their state-of-the-art findings and hypotheses arising from a variety of different approaches to this group of diseases. Their approaches include clinical presentations, epidemiology, transgenic methods, and diagnostic tests via transmission electron microscopy and immunoblotting. The diseases covered include human and animal spongiform encephalopathies, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, mad cow disease, and scrapie. Prion Diseases illuminates the conflicting hypotheses that have evolved to explain these diverse disorders which can appear as infectious diseases a genetically determined diseases, as well as ones sharing neuropathological similarities with such common neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and amyotropic lateral sclerosis. It provides a much-needed overview of various approaches to understanding these diseases by showing how researchers have analyzed their different facets, ranging from the epidemiology of the human versions to molecular genetics of the animal forms of the diseases
