Prion Disease

Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), generally known as prion diseases are a cluster of degenerative brain disorders defined by tiny holes giving a spongy appearance to the brain. Prions are infectious agents composed entirely of proteins. This can be diagnosed when brain tissue is diagnosed under microscope. Very rare disorder, which affects one in every one million people every year. TSEs progress rate is very high which usually results in death. Proper treatment is not available till now, research is being going on to find out cure for TSEs.
