 In one of TSE (communicable spongy brain fever), abnormal prion protein accumulates in brain mainly, and organization of brain shows abnormal behavior, failure of muscular coordination into a sponge form, and it is thought that he dies. It is thought that BSE infection to cow spread for other cows having been given bait (meat-and-bone meal) which assumed brain or spinal cord (sekizui) of cow which was ever infected with BSE raw materials led by the U.K. 36 infected cows are confirmed in Japan to January, 2009 after September, 2001, and, after February, 2009, infected cow is not confirmed in the country. In Saga, BSE has not been confirmed to date in the prefecture.

 After BSE generating in the country of September, 2001, various countermeasures [reference 1] was performed. Reevaluation was performed based on the latest scientific knowledge about the domestic inspection system, the countermeasures whole in food security such as import condition based on approach for the past 15 years, the international situation by 15 years having passed from countermeasures start, domestic and foreign BSE risks having decreased.

 We received report, "risk difference when we abolished when we continued BSE inspection of health cow more than age for current 48 months could ignore health influence on people in the food health impact statement pertaining to review of BSE country countermeasures of the Food Safety Commission of August, 2016 very small", and revision (the February 13, 2017 promulgation) did "the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare relations bovine spongiform encephalopathy countermeasures special measures law enforcement regulations", and Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare abolished BSE inspection of health cow in Saga according to this from April 1, 2017 and decided to carry out BSE inspection when we judged that inspection was necessary from the viewpoint of illness differentiation among cows age or more for 24 months after birth.
