A British company says it has developed a blood test for the human form of BSE. London-based Microsens says the test has so far been used on two people suspected of having vCJD.
It found signs of the disease in one patient, who still shows symptoms. But no signs were found in the second patient and she has since recovered.
Presenting their findings at a conference in Paris, scientists said it could enable doctors to identify those with vCJD for the first time.
