    Lost track of a recent mention of a non C.W.D. disease where the malformed protein mechanism (?) was being targeted/studied.

    So the way I understand the first link is it is kind of good news for me, seeing as how old I am.
    Your second link went 404 (
    Oops, we couldn't find the page you were looking for) on me

    If you want to read a huge history of prion knowledge and and its impact read: https://cmr.asm.org/content/29/3/633. However it is very complex and it will require an extensive amount of time to read the entire article. A less rigourous explanation is found in: https://neuroscientificallychallenged.com/blog/know-your-brain-prion-diseases.

    Dale, that second article for whatever reason just disappeared. I hope these two work. Sometimes they might be intellectually protected material that just locks out after an initial look, I really don't know.

    From what I am reading, prion knowledge is rapidly changing. Work from 5 years ago might now be archaic.
