Agreed, the other question I have is who is going to pay for the use of this vaccination? It would be great to have a cure for CWD and to have healthy game for generations to come. But I want to see it work first.Yes, skeptical as in Missouri-style, "SHOW ME."
Couldnt have said it any better. End of ThreadThe researcher in question has been touting this hypothesis for decades. However, other researchers have been trying and failing for decades to reliably replicate his results, and time and again other studies have actually found the opposite so far- no demonstrable link between TSE’s and Spiroplasma. But every few years this hypothesis gets trotted out yet again, usually coupled with some sort of solicitation for donations to fund additional work. If there was really something to this, I would think this guy would be able to compete for all the grant funds he would ever need without resorting to crowd-sourced funding and donations to keep his project going. This appears to be the same old news in new packaging. Count me as Skeptical with a capital S.
Brent- no. No treatment for any TSE currently exists.

That Group is basically anti what ever the PA Game Commission says or does. Or at least it seems that way very often. Lets just keep our fingers crossedDo you seriously think that if a treatment or cure for Alzheimers, CJD and scabies in sheep had been discovered that it would be announced by a deer hunting group in Pennsylvania?
This is a bunch of bull sheet!!
