13.0. Research

The CJD Working Group is keen to facilitate the availability of tissues for research, particularly where patients are having post-mortems performed. Where it is considered appropriate by the consultant in charge of the case, and the patient and/or their next of kin agree, the appropriate consent forms should be discussed and signed.

These forms may be obtained from Professor Sebastian Brandner, who will also be pleased to provide further advice. NB these forms provide consent only for tissues to be used for research.

The conventional post-mortem consent form must ALSO be signed.
