Spain has set up a transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) register, incorporating the current Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) register. The measure will see the compulsory recording of all cases of human TSE, ranging from variant CJD to rarer related conditions such as Gerstmann Straussler-Scheinker syndrome. Until now, there has been a legal requirement to report only classical CJD cases. The new register will be compiled regionally, as part of the national epidemiological surveillance network, and in accordance with EU requirements. The government has expressed growing concern at the need for better information on TSE diagnosis and prevention.
