Naturally occurring genetic variation that prevents prion disease is identified

A naturally occurring variant of the human prion protein that produces complete resistance to prion diseases such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) has been identified. The researchers said that the findings, published in Nature, could provide important insights into dementia and help to guide research into new treatments.1
