In brief: No easy tests for CJ
The following information is taken from the cdc website.
"the diagnostic tests performed at the npdpsc include a CSF 14-3-3 immunoassay, routine histopathologic analysis, immunohistochemistry, and western blot and prion protein gene analyses." in short there are not easy blood tests for cjd.
