Is there any treatment for kuru?

A Answers (1)

  • There is no treatment that can control or cure kuru. The only option is to discourage the practice of cannibalism. There is no cure or treatment for any of the other transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE) diseases.

    This answer is based on source information from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
