Blood plasma can give you CJD 15/02/2009

An elderly man has caught the human form of mad cow disease by being given contaminated blood plasma.

Most victims develop the illness - called variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD) - by eating BSE infected meat or being given tainted blood transfusions.

But Government experts will reveal this week that an elderly haemophiliac got incurable vCJD through contaminated plasma, a special form of sterilised blood.

He was not killed by the disease and the vCJD was only found during a postmortem.

More than 160 people have died of vCJD since 1990. There are still about five deaths a year.
