    The disease could be spontaneously generated, so that one of the proteins mutated and caused it, so there may not be others like that right now. On the other hand, we don't know if there are other spontaneous cases that could have occurred over the years because we don't test every cow.

    There is spontaneous CJD in humans at about a rate of 1 per 1 million. I'm not sure, but I suspect some of those spontaneous CJD might have been new variant CJD.
