Preventive Veterinary Medicine

Defining output-based standards to achieve and maintain tuberculosis freedom in farmed deer, with reference to member states of the European Union

Investigation published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine


Within the European Union (EU), detailed legislation has been developed for cattle, but not deer, to minimise disease risks associated with trade in animals and animal products. This legislation is expressed as input-based standards, providing a detailed outline of the activity required (for example, testing of animals and application of defined control measures), on the expectation that an adequate output (for example, confidence in freedom) will be achieved. Input-based standards are at odds with the increasing shift towards output-based standards, particularly in OIE rules governing interna… Read more

The SOS Response Controls Integron Recombination

Investigation published in Science


Integrons are found in the genome of hundreds of environmental bacteria but are mainly known for their role in the capture and spread of antibiotic resistance determinants among Gram-negative pathogens. We report a direct link between this system and the ubiquitous SOS response. We found that LexA controlled expression of most integron integrases and consequently regulated cassette recombination. This regulatory coupling enhanced the potential for cassette swapping and capture in cells under stress, while minimizing cassette rearrangements or loss in constant environments. This finding exposes… Read more

Sánchez Vizcaíno: ´La alerta de la gripe A nos puede llevar al cuento del lobo´

Interview in La Provincia of Editorial Prensa Ibérica


El catedrático de Sanidad Animal de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid y experto de la FAO, José Manuel Sánchez Vizcaíno, aseguró ayer, en el Club Prensa Canaria, que "si seguimos alertando a la sociedad con cosas como la gripe A puede que nos termine sucediendo como el cuento del lobo". Sánchez Vizcaíno, que estuvo acompañado por el catedrático de Anatomía Patológica de la ULPGC, Antonio Fernández, ofreció una conferencia titulada Realidades y ficciones de la nueva gripe, en la que aseguró que la alerta sobre la gripe A se ha debido, entre otras cosas, a una mala denominación de "porcina" y… Read more

Virus Influenza A (H1N1) Miedo a la pandemia o pandemia de miedo

New article published in Tribuna Complutense


La Influenza Porcina (también conocida como “gripe porcina”) es una enfermedad respiratoria aguda de los cerdos causada por virus de la Influenza tipo A y cuya mortalidad, generalmente, es muy baja. La influenza como enfermedad de los cerdos fue reconocida por primera vez durante la pandemia de los años 1918 y 1919, la conocida como “Gripe Española”… Read more

Casos humanos por virus Influenza A H1N1: un rápido tránsito desde la “gripe porcina” hasta la “nueva gripe”

New online article published in Análisis madri+d


La Influenza Porcina (también conocida como “gripe porcina”) es una enfermedad respiratoria aguda de los cerdos causada por virus de la Influenza tipo A. La enfermedad se caracteriza por su súbita aparición, con presencia de tos, problemas respiratorios, fiebre y decaimiento, seguida de una rápida recuperación de los animales. La mortalidad, generalmente, es muy baja. La influenza como enfermedad de los cerdos fue reconocida por primera vez durante la pandemia de los años 1918 y 1919, la conocida como “Gripe Española”… Read more

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

VanB-type Enterococcus faecium clinical isolate successively inducibly resistant to, dependent on, and constitutively resistant to vancomycin

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy publish this investigation article


Three Enterococcus faecium strains isolated successively from the same patient, vancomycin-resistant strain BM4659, vancomycin-dependent strain BM4660, and vancomycin-revertant strain BM4661, were indistinguishable by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and harbored plasmid pIP846, which confers VanB-type resistance. The vancomycin dependence of strain BM4660 was due to mutation P(175)L, which suppressed the activity of the host Ddl D-Ala:D-Ala ligase. Reversion to resistance in strain BM4661 was due to a G-to-C transversion in the transcription terminator of the vanRS(B) operon that lowered the … Read more

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases

Social network analysis. Review of general concepts and use in preventive veterinary medicine

Investigation published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases


Social network analysis (SNA) and graph theory have been used widely in sociology, psychology, anthropology, biology and medicine. Social network analysis and graph theory provide a conceptual framework to study contact patterns and to identify units of analysis that are frequently or intensely connected within the network. Social network analysis has been used in human epidemiology as a tool to explore the potential transmission of infectious agents such as HIV, tuberculosis, hepatitis B and syphilis. In preventive veterinary medicine, SNA is an approach that offers benefits for exploring the… Read more
