Steve, a California physician, whose wife spontaneously developed CJD, shares his experiences with the public. CJD is a rapidly progressive dementia whose study may yield important insights about other, more prevalent dementias. We thank Steve and his children for sharing their stories. Their contribution has contributed to a growing awareness about CJD.

UCSF's Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases, directed by Stanley Prusiner, MD is aggressively pursuing a treatment for CJD. Dr. Prusiner discovered that misshapen prion proteins cause CJD. For this discovery, Dr. Prusiner was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1997.

This film won the 2010 Neuro Film Festival sponsored by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation.
