UK - A new brain disease has emerged to threaten cattle, DEFRA has confirmed. But department officials have scotched fears that the disease is a new form of BSE. Press articles this week (w/e June 11) raised concerns of a "new and mysterious brain disease" after it emerged on Tuesday (June 8) that DEFRA had asked the Health Protection Agency to investigate the human health implications of a disease which caused inflammation of the brain in cattle.
