Abstract

In scrapie-infected cells, Congo red inhibits both the replication of the infectious agent and accumulation of the protease-resistant form of PrP (PrP-res). In this report, we show that Congo red prolongs the incubation periods of hamsters experimentally infected with two different strains of scrapie.
