Information from a scrapie epidemic in a closed INRA Romanov flock is presented. Performances, pedigree, histopathological diagnoses and Pm-P genotypes were recorded since the outbreak of the epidemic (in 1993). Major influence of the polymophisms at codons 154 and 171, as well as a side effect of polymorphism at codon 136 are shown. A possible relationship between gastrointestinal parasitism and scrapie is discussed.
