Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease transmission?
I would like to ask, on which ways can be transmitted Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD)? Can it be transmitted sexually?
I was reading that prions that could present in spermatozoids or egg cells could be risking for offspring, not for patrtners no matter if they are homosexual or heterosexual...

Hi,

CJD can be transmitted by close contact through air or by touching or casual contact.
Exposure to brain tissue, infected spinal fluid is also the likely sources of infection. It is not known for sure if blood is a likely source of infection or not. Research shows that the level of prions in the blood is too low to cause infection. Sexual transmission is not known till now.
