GeneThera announces another case of Mad Cow

April 11, 2007 — /MARKET WIRE/ WHEAT RIDGE, CO –GeneThera, Inc. announced today that a female cow imported into the United States in 2002 was born in the same Canadian herd as a bull diagnosed in February with Mad Cow disease, the Agriculture Department said Tuesday.

The cow was slaughtered in Nebraska before it was 30 months old and showed no signs of the brain-wasting disease, said Karen Eggert, a spokeswoman for the Animal and Plant Inspection Service. However, the meat from the animal probably entered the food supply and was never tested for Mad Cow.

In February, Canada confirmed its ninth case of Mad Cow disease since 2003. There have been three confirmed cases of Mad Cow disease in U.S. animals.
