Morocco Says CJD Death Not Linked to Mad Cow

MOROCCO - The death this week of a Moroccan who contracted Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) has no link with mad cow disease, a government minister said on Friday. The health ministry said on Thursday a man had died of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease and it was testing whether the case was vCJD -- a variant believed to be caused by eating food tainted with material from cattle with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease.
