Abstract

The Australian National Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease Registry (ANCJDR) is a Commonwealth Government-funded surveillance unit, responsible for the ascertainment of all cases of human transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (also known as prion diseases) in Australia. Having been in operation for 18 years, the activities of the ANCJDR have evolved and expanded over this timeframe, with the ANCJDR providing clinical, diagnostic and infection control advice and service. This update provides a review of the activities of the ANCJDR during 2011 and analysis of both prospective and retrospective (to 1970) data collected from 1993 to 31 December 2011.
