A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

To clarify the mechanisms leading to the development of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in some recipients of pituitary-derived human growth hormone (hGH), we investigated the effects of repeated injections of low prion doses in mice. The injections were performed, as in hGH-treated children, by a peripheral route at short intervals and for an extended period. Twelve groups of 24 mice were intraperitoneally inoculated one, two, or five times per week for 200 days with 2 x 10(-5) to 2 x 10(-8) dilutions of brain homogenate containing the mouse-adapted C506M3 scrapie strain. Sixteen control mice were injected once a week for 200 days with a 2 x 10(-4) dilution of normal brain homogenate. Of mice injected in a single challenge with a scrapie inoculum of a 2 x 10(-4), 2 x 10(-5), or 2 x 10(-6) dilution, 2/10, 1/10, and 0/10 animals developed scrapie, respectively. Control mice remained healthy. One hundred thirty-five of 135 mice injected with repeated prion doses of a 2 x 10(-5) or 2 x 10(-6) dilution succumbed to scrapie. Of mice injected with repeated scrapie doses of a 2 x 10(-7) or 2 x 10(-8) dilution, 52/59 and 38/67 animals died of scrapie, respectively. A high incidence of scrapie was observed in mice receiving repeated doses at low infectivity, whereas there was no disease in mice that were injected once with the same doses. Repeated injections of low prion doses thus constitute a risk for development of prion disease even if the same total dose inoculated in a single challenge does not induce the disease.
