Mad cow disease (bse) affects cattle, and when it affects humans it is called variant creutzfeldt-jakob disease (vcjd).
It is believed to be caused by a specific type of misfolded protein called a prion. Most cases worldwide are reported in the uk. By october 2009, it had killed 166 people in the uk, and 44 elsewhere.
