    Is there a website that has current, updated research data about CJD? This disease took my mother in law from out of nowhere, and in 3 months she went from being totally healthy to dying in hospice care. Any help with finding the latest on this horrible life-ending nightmare would be much appreciated.

    This is a prion (similar to a virus) caused disease this is nearly always fatal with no known treatment. CJD is a very rare disease.

    Here is an organization dedicated to finding a cure for this conditon:
