Handling JCD

From:Rita Obregon <robregon@maimonidesmed.org>

Hello Histonetters,

I have been reading about Creutzfeldt-Jacob Disease(JCD). A cousin of
"mad cow disease". I like to know if anyone would like to share their
protocol/ procedures for the safe handling of this infectious disease.
Iam interested in decontamination procedures for the following:
1. Operating suite and equipments
2. Decontaminating the tissue
3. Tissue processing and sectioning
4. Waste disposal
5. Autopsy Room

Thank you all in advance for your kind cooperation.
