Interim Chronic Wasting Disease Response Rules

http://tpwd.texas.gov/business/feedback/public_comment/proposals/201511_deer_breeder_cwd.phtml

I think the cwd rules could have been more stringent in a variety of ways, but will agree for now with what is proposed. I still think the testing should be increased across the board. I think there is still too much catering to the industry. see why I think this below and latest peer review on cwd sound science. ...

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is an e f f i c i e n t l y t r a n s mi t t e d s p o n g i f o r m encephalopathy of cervids (e.g. deer, elk, and moose), and is the only known prion disease affecting both free-ranging wildlife and captive animals. The antemortem detection of CWD and other prion diseases has proven difficult, due in part to difficulties in identifying an appropriate peripheral tissue specimen and complications with conventional test sensitivity. At present, biopsies of the recto-

anal mucosal-associated lymphoid tissues (RAMALT) have shown promising sensitivity and are not impractical to collect in live animals. Nasal brush collections have likewise proven both sensitive and practical for identification of prion infections in humans. In this study, we evaluated both RAMALT and nasal brush collections by real time quaking-induced conversion (RT-QuIC), and compared our findings to RAMALT immu n o h i s t o c h emi s t r y a s we l l a s conventional postmortem evaluation of obex and retropharyngeal lymph node tissues from over 700 captive and free-ranging deer and elk in areas with endemic CWD. We correlated our results with various clinical findings, including pathological stage of infection as determined by obex scoring, PrP genotype, age, and sex. While the sensitivity of RAMALT RT-QuIC analyses exceeded that of RAMALT IHC (69-80% vs. >44%) and nasal brush collections (15-30%), the sensitivity of both biopsy and nasal brush analyses were dependent primarily on clinical stage of disease, although PrP genotype was also an important predictor of sample positivity. Our findings further demonstrate the potential and limitations of antemortem sample analyses by RT-QuIC in the identification and management of prion diseases.

What is really sad is I talked to a guy today that told me about the volunteer CWD testing on ranches. Said he new of a couple of ranches that were hounded to give samples. Told them to call their biologist 24/7 when they had them and to just keep them in their walkin cooler. Said those heads were still in the the cooler for over a week. No one came to get them. Shows how really important it must be confused2

Who was hounding them to give samples stxranchman? It wasn't tpwd was it? I've had conversations with our tpwd biologist on the subject, and I asked if we needed to test and he said no. He has never indicated he had any concerns about our needing to test our deer.

I was told the TPWD biologists bosses were on them to get samples, so they were asking ranches for help. The ranches finally offered to help him with samples they saved. Then when they called no one never showed up after over a week of holding the samples. I have heard that processors have been asked also, but they refused. Processors said they feared seeing guys hanging around collecting samples would look bad for business. Not to mention what if they found one sample amongst 100 or so deer hanging in a cooler? Imagine how many people would leave their deer to there at the processors expense. Be bad for his business I would think anyway you look at it.

I am surprised you biologist did not take you up on the offer for testing your deer since they are asking for volunteer samples for testing:

Nope. He never suggested voluntarily testing. I'm not going to bring it back up either. Maybe there is more concern in South Texas than North Texas? Who knows?

State is flying by the seat of it's britches. Very little consistency.

And what they are consistent on is being wrong and closed minded.
