This was a really interesting topic! I just had a few suggestions: -It might be interesting to include side by side pictures of brain infected/not infected with prions in your intro. -Just to confirm: it says that BSE has a four year incubation period and that cows get it at 4-5 years, does that mean they were infected really early in life? -Maybe include an image of the structure of the drugs in question. -You could focus on one of the potential treatments you mention and go into some more detail on it, as well as including the info you already have about the others mentioned. -Since the bulk of your paper is about bovine encephalopathy, maybe not necessary to include the short sections about other diseases at the end. They could just be talked about in the intro. -Stephanie
