By infecting stem cell cultures from fetal mouse brains with the prions that cause wasting diseases, including CWD, scientists at the McLaughlin Research Center have discovered a method for diagnosing the infection much more quickly and studying genetic susceptibility to the disease. The finding could lead to a better understanding of what causes certain wasting diseases, and could eventually lead to successful treatments.
