Greetings OIE et al,


I think that the OIE et al, should explain to the lay public, as to why the OIE post TSE prion disease reports and incidence there from different species on their disease reporting reports via email and or on their news feed web site, daily and or weekly, for just a chosen few Countries, yet other Countries seem to be exempt from this reporting to the public. WHY is this ?


For instance, Japan just reported another incidence of scrapie, this time in goat.




http://web.oie.int/wahis/public.php?page=single_report&pop=1&reportid=10624



however, the USA (Michigan), is awash in scrapie in goat cases, to a point of epidemic, however, the OIE does not report this, WHY is this ?


the USA and Canada Nor-98 scrapie cases are mounting. NO reports from the OIE. WHY is this ?


we the lay public deserve an answer. i have ask this question before. i have ask it about CWD to the OIE a decade ago.


WHY do some Countries get their TSE prion reports posted, and the USA does not, the USA is exempt from this Global embarrassment?


i am confused.


IF the OIE is going to be a reputable global disease control reporting agency, then the OIE needs to be honest and trust worthy and equal reporting for all Countries, not just a chosen few, while others are exempt. This weakens the animal disease reporting system, and really in all reality, seems to enhance fraud, and undermines reporting of actual disease, thus, defeats the very purpose of the O.I.E., thus undermines the very reason the OIE was suppose to be set up for.


If countries can choose and pick whether or not their different animal disease are reported, and or NOT reported, then what's the point of the O.I.E. $$$



MY personal opinion, if a country is going to belong to the OIE, and or boast about OIE regulations they go by, then they should be made to report animal disease just as any other country does to the OIE, or they should not be a part of this OIE, and should not be allowed to be boasting that they go by OIE guidelines. ...




with sincere regards,
terry

Your posting will read:

Mr Terry Singeltary, retired Scrapie cases Goats from same herd USA Michigan

Comment: " In spite of the poorly defined effects of PRNP genetics, scrapie strain, dose, route and source of infection, the caprine placenta may represent a source of infection to progeny and herd mates as well as a source of persistent environmental contamination. "

Could this route of infection be the cause of the many cases of Goat scrapie from the same herd in Michigan USA ?

Has this been investigated ?

(Figure 6) including five goat cases in FY 2008 that originated from the same herd in Michigan. This is highly unusual for goats, and I strenuously urge that there should be an independent investigation into finding the common denominator for these 5 goats in the same herd in Michigan with Scrapie. ...

Kind Regards, Terry

BSE GBR RISK ASSESSMENTS UPDATE NOVEMBER 23, 2009 COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES AND O.I.E. COMMISSION DECISION of 11 November 2009

amending the Annex to Decision 2007/453/EC as regards the BSE status of Chile, Colombia and Japan (notified under document C(2009) 8590)



http://docket-aphis-2006-0041.blogspot.com/2009/11/bse-gbr-risk-assessments-update.html





SADLY, it seems that the OIE is more worried only about the animal health issues that only relates to trade and the almighty dollar, instead of animal disease that relates to human health factors.

also, in relations to human health and the TSE prion diseases. the OIE will be responsible for refusing to address all TSE disease, and floundering too long, when science and politics allow the many different sporadic CJD strains to animal disease. there is as much science today showing the atypical BSE is related to some strains of sporadic CJD, as there was when Ironside presented his first 10 nvCJD victims. however the OIE refuses to act. CWD ? only time will tell, but the OIE floundered as well there. Scrapie, same there, scrapie transmits to primate. nor-98 atypical scrapie, science mounting there too that the nor-98 is tied to sporadic CJD cases, and what did the OIE DO. COLLABORATE WITH THE USDA ET AL to make the Nor-98 atypical scrapie disease exempt from regulations, and made it LEGAL to trade the Nor-98 atypical scrapie disease a tradable disease $$$ the OIE, USDA et al chose to expose humans and animals to the prion TSE agent around the globe, thus, you will expose not only humans and animals, but the environment as well. ...

Seven main threats for the future linked to prions

First threat

The TSE road map defining the evolution of European policy for protection against prion diseases is based on a certain numbers of hypotheses some of which may turn out to be erroneous. In particular, a form of BSE (called atypical Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy), recently identified by systematic testing in aged cattle without clinical signs, may be the origin of classical BSE and thus potentially constitute a reservoir, which may be impossible to eradicate if a sporadic origin is confirmed.

***Also, a link is suspected between atypical BSE and some apparently sporadic cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans. These atypical BSE cases constitute an unforeseen first threat that could sharply modify the European approach to prion diseases.

Second threat

Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee

The possible impacts and consequences for public health, trade and agriculture of the Government’s decision to relax import restrictions on beef Final report June 2010

2.65 At its hearing on 14 May 2010, the committee heard evidence from Dr Alan Fahey who has recently submitted a thesis on the clinical neuropsychiatric, epidemiological and diagnostic features of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.48 Dr Fahey told the committee of his concerns regarding the lengthy incubation period for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, the inadequacy of current tests and the limited nature of our current understanding of this group of diseases.49

2.66 Dr Fahey also told the committee that in the last two years a link has been established between forms of atypical CJD and atypical BSE. Dr Fahey said that: They now believe that those atypical BSEs overseas are in fact causing sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. They were not sure if it was due to mad sheep disease or a different form. If you look in the textbooks it looks like this is just arising by itself. But in my research I have a summary of a document which states that there has never been any proof that sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease has arisen de novo—has arisen of itself. There is no proof of that. The recent research is that in fact it is due to atypical forms of mad cow disease which have been found across Europe, have been found in America and have been found in Asia. These atypical forms of mad cow disease typically have even longer incubation periods than the classical mad cow disease.50

CDC Assesses Potential Human Exposure to Prion Diseases Travel Warning

http://transmissiblespongiformencephalopathy.blogspot.com/2011/05/cdc-assesses-potential-human-exposure.html




IN my opinion, I believe that the O.I.E. has failed the public, the consumer, and the animals, the O.I.E. has put all three in harms way for decades to come in reference to these tradable TSE prions, and all this was done to protect trade and the almighty dollar. Until things change, these prion diseases will continue to spread, expose, and kill.


When will the O.I.E. surveillance and testing for these TSE prion disease and regulations there from, when will this be made to find disease, instead of hide disease by testing ratio figures to be so low, they will not detect said disease ?


What is the O.I.E.'s acceptable death ratio for exposure to these TSE prion disease ?


When will the O.I.E. take all these TSE prion disease health issues seriously, over trade issues ?


You have waited entirely too long already, and exposed millions around the globe because of this, in my opinion, and you chose to gamble with human life by doing so. ...
