The National Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Research & Surveillance Unit is a patient advocacy, research organization located in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1990, the unit monitors Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) in the UK in order to identify any changes in the pattern of disease that might be attributable to the emergence of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, a variant of CJD. CJD is an extremely rare degenerative brain disorder characterized by the sudden development of rapidly progressive neurological and neuromuscular symptoms. The unit also identifies all cases of any form of CJD and studies the clinical features and diagnosis of these illnesses.
