      Fatal familial insomnia (FFI) is a very rare form of genetic prion disease. In almost every case it is caused by a very specific mutation in the PRNP gene. This mutation causes the prion protein (PrP) that is made from this gene to be a different shape (fold incorrectly). Since the protein has a different shape, it cannot work correctly.   M ad cow and other prion diseases—so named by Nobel Prize winner Stanley Prusiner, M.D., for the tiny protein molecules believed to cause these degenerative brain diseases—have been around for years. These diseases, although fatal, are also very rare and have caused what some scientists says is irrational fear. Animal Prion Diseases.

In Advancing Prion Science, the Institute of Medicine’s Committee on Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies Assessment of Relevant Science recommends priorities for research and investment to the Department of Defense’s National Prion Research Program (NPRP).Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), also called prion diseases, are invariably fatal neurodegenerative infectious.

Advancing Prion Science provides the first comprehensive reference on present knowledge about all aspects of TSEs' from basic science to the U.S. research infrastructure, from diagnostics to surveillance, and from prevention to treatment.

All of these diseases, as well as others not discussed here, are now referred to as prion diseases. The prion protein is found in all animals in a three-dimensional shape, but when diseased, its shape changes. The diseased prion then induces other proteins of the same type to change shape.

These misshapen proteins then spread throughout the brain. Committee on Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies: Assessment of Relevant Science.
