Story

Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) is a fatal brain condition with about 130 new cases in the UK every year. There is currently no cure but every day scientists and doctors are getting closer to finding a treatment. The Cure CJD Campaign aims to raise funds to support the use of an antibody drug developed for the treatment of patients with CJD. The first patient was treated at UCLH in October 2018.
