NEGATIVE RESULTS - Last fall, brain and lymph node tissue samples from hunter harvested white-tailed deer in Delaware were submitted to the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veteri- nary Medicine's New Bolton Cen- ter for Chronic Wasting Disease testing. Three hundred random samples were collected in Delaware, 100 from each county. Final test re- sults just received showed all the samples to be negative for the dis- ease. According to Ken Reynolds, Wildlife Re- search Pro- gram Man- ager with the Division of Fish and Wildlife, "300 sam- ples gave us a 95 percent probability of detecting the disease if it existed in 1 percent or more of the deer population. While this doesn't provide 100 percent assurance of no disease, we are encouraged by these results." Chronic Wasting Disease or CWD, is a neurological condition found in deer and elk where it ap- pears an abnormal protein materi- al called a prion invades and grad- ually destroys the animal's brain. It is thought to be 100 percent fa- tal and believed to be transmitted from close contact with infected deer. The disease wasn't known about until the 1960s and in the 70's the disease was identified as a transmittable neurological dis- ease.
