CWD Cure Found?
Interesting to see what becomes of this.
Not new news. Would be monumentally groundbreaking if he is correct, but no other researchers are buying into it...yet... Until he can actually produce a "cured" animal, it's just a theory.
What I was told by reputable wildlife biologists was if crutzchfield jakob disease could be cured with antibiotics, they would have done it 30 years ago. This guy has no credibility whatsoever. It's too bad it has given us false hope.

You’re assuming that CJD is caused by the same bug (or similar).
And both you and Jaq are assuming that the damage is/would be reversible. Could be that there’s a tipping point.
No doubt the claims and promises in that article are overblown, though...
Not sure if a cure is what anyone is looking for right now.
More likely is Big Pharm may string it along with a hunter field test kit for it.
Sell a hunnerd million in just two years prolly.
Pretty hilarious. Hell, we can't even get idiot humans in the US to get vaccinated against life-threatening diseases and, somehow, these guys think they're gonna get a bunch of wild animals to take antibiotics???
He's not even at LSU anymore. After his publicity stunt in PA with the United Sportsmen of PA LSU cut ties with him.
Wrote this for school on the topic
Dang, looks like I put the first draft up there. I'll try to find the new one...
Excited to read it gunmaster
