We were viewing cadavers and wet specimens including brain tissue. A used glove (touched the cadaver and specimens) was inside out and I went to put it on. My hands have eczema and I got scared that I could contract CJD from the used glove. I washed my hands after and told my professor. She said I should be fine since the cadavers are screened and are from the UCSF Willed Body Program. Then I told her I was more concerned about the specimens and she told me that they are also from the willed body program, were properly embalmed and don’t contain infectious materials.They were acquired more than 30 years ago. This is what concerns me. I don’t think they had screening for prions back then. I am so afraid and almost certain I have CJD. Someone please reassure me.
