Objective. To determine whether naturally occurring autoantibodies against the prion protein are present in individuals with genetic prion disease mutations and controls, and if so, whether they are protective against prion disease. Methods. In this case-control study, we collected 124 blood samples from individuals with a variety of pathogenicPRNPmutations and 78 control individuals with a positive family history of genetic prion disease but lacking disease-associatedPRNPmutations. Antibody reactivity was measured using an indirect ELISA for the...
