In brief: Prions

Vcjd or variant creutzfeldt-jakob disease is the human form of "mad cow disease" acquired by humans by the ingestion of contaminated meat (mostly hamburger) or rarely by blood transfusion from a case of vcjd prior to diagnosis.
There is no definitive treatment although a number of investigators are studying possibilities.
