Prions (proteinaceous infectious particles) are misfolded proteins with pathogenic potential, causing a group of diseases called transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs). These include Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (CJD), fatal familial insomnia (FFI), Gerstmann–Sträussler syndrome (GSS), and kuru.
In this course, the student will be introduced to prions via the study of the characteristics of TSEs.
For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, histology, and physiology.
really gr8. to the point. fascinating. this whole program is quality cme. _JC
I haven't reviewed the lecture but personally from watching some of the previous vids I feel that doc Vincent is not giving a USMLE lecture. while what he does is very good, lecturio is very specific for USMLE, the lecturer has to hit the most high yield points in the most concise and easy to understand way. the benchmark would be Hassan sattar in pathoma, very on the point summarizing massive topics to a single slide.
es un excelente vídeo, y esta muy bien explicado; justo el tema de mi próxima evaluación
By my opinion, very interesting and informative lectures. Thank you very much!
