Definition of nvCJD in English:
Short for new variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease.
- The clinical and neuropathological features of Kuru include those found in nvCJD, and both diseases involve the lymporeticular system.
- The OED is the only dictionary that has both vCJD and nvCJD, and it simply expands the acronyms, without indicating that the two terms are different ways of referring to the same thing.
- That would also fit with the decades-long incubation period for CJD and nvCJD.
