Desarrollo de modelos epidemiológicos cuantitativos para el análisis del riesgo de introducción y difusión potencial de los virus de la fiebre aftosa y de la peste porcina clásica en España

PhD Thesis defense by Beatriz Martínez López at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


The objectives of this thesis have been, first, to identify areas and periods with increased risk of introduction of Foot-and-Mouth virus (FMDV) and Classical Swine Fever virus (CSFV) in Spain and, second, to characterize their spread once introduced into the country. For that reason, four models have been developed, two for the analysis of the risk of introduction and two others for the evaluation of the potential disease spread. Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) and Classical Swine Fever (CSF) are, without doubt, the diseases with the greatest impact on the economy of a country. Recent outbrea… Read more

Immune recognition and innate response in bovine tuberculosis: summary

New online article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal


Tuberculosis in cattle is a zoonotic disease caused mainly by Mycobacterium bovis, although it is reported outbreaks caused by M. tuberculosis and M. caprae in this specie. In general, it is referring to bovine tuberculosis as the disease caused by the species included in the M. tuberculosis complex (not only by M. bovis). Innate response begins after the infection and before the initiation of adaptive immunity. The importance of this kind of response it is due to its capacity to neutralize the progression of infection… Read more

Mycobacteriosis due to members of the Mycobacterium avium complex in swine: Significance, diagnosis and identification of possible sources of infection

New online article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal


Mycobacterium avium complex comprises two bacterial species of great importance, M. intracellulare and M. avium; the last one is currently subdivided in four subspecies (M. avium subsp. avium, M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis, M. avium subsp. hominissuis and M. avium susbsp. silvaticum). All of them can infect a wide range of host species. In addition, while some of these species/subspecies are strict pathogens and are rarely found outside the host (M. avium subsp. avium, M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis and M. avium susbsp. silvaticum) the others are saprophytic bacteria that can survive in t… Read more

Impact of vaccination for bluetongue control

New article published in Revista Complutense de Ciencias Veterinarias


The bluetongue virus (BTV) is a reemerging worldwide disease transmitted by insects of the genus Culicoides that affects domestic and some wild ruminants. Currently, it is a disease of great importance in Europe due to the economic losses it causes. Since 2002 in Spain, there have been outbreaks of 4 different serotypes of BTV, each with a different behaviour in terms of distribution, population and pathogenicity. Control in Spain has been possible through the use of different prophylactic measures, but the main tool for the eradication is vaccination. The aim of this work is to assess the imp… Read more

Other Orbiviruses: Updated information on African horse sickness and Epizootic haemorrhagic disease in Europe and in the Mediterranean basin

Revue d’élevage et de medicine vétérinaire des pays tropicaux publish this article


Orbiviruses are vector-borne pathogens that can cause notifiable diseases in animals, such as bluetongue (BT) and epizootic haemorrhagic disease of deer (EHD) in ruminants, or African horse sickness (AHS) in equines. The relatively recent expansion of BT in Europe to higher latitudes than expected has evidenced the need to explore the ways of introduction and exposure of other orbiviruses in Europe and in the Mediterranean Basin. AHS was successfully eradicated from Europe since the 1990s but continues to be endemic in many African countries. Of the nine AHS serotypes, two have been present in… Read more

Application of the thermography for the valuation of the fertility in eggs of Falco naumanni

Revista Complutense de Ciencias Veterinarias published this online article


Usually the evaluation of eggs fertility is done with ovoscopy. The principal inconvenient is the need to manipulate the egg, this prevents its application in wildlife. This is why it was studied to substitute this method for termography, analizing the termic patterns of 190 eggs of Falco naumanni.The obtained results show that termography allows us to differentiate the fertile eggs, from unfertile, and aborted ones thanks to its different termic patters and cooling speeds since 3 days after the lay. Its possible to use it both during the artificial incubation and in nature with different env… Read more

Application of thermography for the study of koalas

New online article published in Revista Complutense de Ciencias Veterinarias


There has been a study of thermography in koalas to establish the anatomic point of reference of the general temperature of this species, the normal thermal patters depend on environment temperature and the different changes during the females heat period, the gestation and the development period of the joey at the marsupium. Also an inflammation of superficial nodes and a chronic lameness were studied. The results indicate that the eye is a good reference point of the general temperature due to its stability and easy measurement. It has also been observed an increase of temperature in the aro… Read more

Animal-Borne Viruses of Relevance to the Food Industry

Animal-Borne Viruses of Relevance to the Food Industry

This book has been published by International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI)


A number of animal-borne diseases that are highly contagious between animals also have the potential to infect humans. This may necessitate interruption of sourcing raw materials, trade restriction of manufactured goods, or result in loss in sales of foods derived from animals suffering particular diseases. The diseases considered are notifiable to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) and include Hepatitis E1, foot and mouth disease (FMD), vesicular stomatitis (VS), swine vesicular disease (SVD), bluetongue, lumpy skin disease (LSD), Rift Valley fever (RVF), Pestes des Petits Ruminan… Read more
