BOSTON (AP) - Public health officials in Massachusetts are investigating whether a patient in a Cape Cod hospital has the human form of mad cow disease.

Tests are being done to see if the patient has Creutzfeldt-Jakob (KROYTS'-felt JAY'-kuhb) disease and whether it's the variant attributed to mad cow.

There have only been three cases of the human form of mad cow disease reported in the United States in the last several years. Officials say it's extremely unlikely the patient has the potentially fatal brain disease linked to eating infected tissue from cows.

Fatal disease

Mad cow disease is an incurable, fatal brain disease that occurs to cattle and some more animals like goat and sheep. But it doesn't attack any person with the intake of beef.
