Overview over admission dates and time of euthanasia, age in years, PrP genotype, clinical presentation at time of euthanasia and pathognomonic histopathology of the brain of the five natural classical scrapie cases. PrPSc was identified by immunohistochemistry on sections of the brain as described by Ersdal et al. (2005) [3]
