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.

“ if crutzchfield jakob disease could be cured with antibiotics, they would have done it 30 years ago.”

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...

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.
