Risk assessment and cost-effectiveness analysis of Aujeszky´s disease virus introduction through breeding and fattening pig movements into Spain

Investigation published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine


Movement of infected animals is considered the most likely route of Aujeszky´s disease virus (ADV) introduction into free areas and the main obstacle to eradicating Aujeszky´s disease (AD) in those areas, which have achieved a low prevalence (>0 and Read more

Risk of introduction of H5N1 HPAI from Europe to Spain by wild water birds in autumn

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article


Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) subtype H5N1 continues to circulate across Eurasia and Africa since its unprecedented rapid spread in 2005. Diffusion by wild bird movements has been evidenced in the European Union in 2006 and 2007. Spain is an important wintering quarter for aquatic birds from northern latitudes, so identifying the critical areas and species where an outbreak is prone to happen is necessary. This work presents an assessment of the risk of introduction of H5N1 HPAI in Spain by aquatic wild birds estimating a relative risk value per province. For this purpose, an assess… Read more

Research in Veterinary Science

Rapid and sensitive detection of African horse sickness virus by real-time PCR

Investigation article published in Research in Veterinary Science


A highly sensitive and specific TaqMan-MGB real-time RT-PCR assay has been developed and standardised for the detection of African horse sickness virus (AHSV). Primers and MGB probe specific for AHSV were selected within a highly conserved region of genome segment 7. The robustness and general application of the diagnostic method were verified by the detection of 12 AHSV isolates from all of the nine serotypes. The analytical sensitivity ranged from 0.001 to 0.15 TCID(50) per reaction, depending on the viral serotype. Real-time PCR performance was preliminarily assessed by analysing a panel of… Read more

Moraxella pluranimalium sp. nov., isolated from animal specimens

International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology publish this investigation article


Four unusual Gram-negative, catalase-positive, oxidase-positive, coccus-shaped bacteria isolated from one sheep and three pigs were characterized using phenotypic and molecular genetic methods. On the basis of cellular morphology and biochemical criteria, the isolates were tentatively assigned to the genus Moraxella, although the organisms did not appear to correspond to any recognized species. Comparative 16S rRNA gene sequencing studies demonstrated that the isolates represent a novel subline within the genus Moraxella. The most closely related species in phylogenetic terms was Moraxella cun… Read more
