TRANSFUSION MEDICINE

 EPIDEMIOLOGY REVIEW (TMER)

 

 

The Transfusion Medicine Epidemiology Review (TMER) is a collaborative project between the UK NCJDRSU and the UK Blood Services.  The main purpose is to investigate whether there is any evidence that Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) or variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) may have been transmitted via the blood supply.

This website contains data on vCJD donors and cases of vCJD who have received transfusions in the past but does not contain data on the ongoing study of sporadic CJD.
