Third French death from human form of mad cow disease

April 26, 2001 Agence France Presse

A 19-year-old man who was the third identified victim in France of the human form of mad cow disease has died, his family said Thursday.

The patient, Arnaud Eboli, died on Wednesday.

Eboli had been diagnosed with variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD), the human version of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), as mad cow disease is called.

Britain recorded 97 confirmed and probable cases of vCJD as of April 2, and Ireland one case, a woman who had previously lived in the United Kingdom, which was the seat of Europe's BSE scare.
