Modeling classical swine fever spread using a spatial hybrid model

Oral communication in XXI Congreso de Ecuaciones Diferenciales y Aplicaciones (CEDYA)

Classical swine fever (CSF) is a highly contagious viral disease of pigs and wild boars that causes severe commercial restrictions to the affected countries. The knowledge of spread patterns and risk factors that are involved in the transmission of CSF would help to implement specific measures and to reduce the disease spread in future outbreaks. In this article, we introduce a new spatial hybrid model developed for the spread of CSF. It is based on the combination of a stochastic individual Based model with a Susceptible-Infected model. The coefficients and parameters of the models are estima… Read more

TB-STEP.Strategies for the eradication of bovine tuberculosis

Poster presented in VLA International Conference Animal Diseases 2009

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by microorganisms of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. This infection affects domestic and wild animals and represents a major concern worldwide because of its high economic impact due to mortalities, condemnations, decreases in productions, and its zoonotic potential. Eradication programmes based on a test-and-slaughter policy have been implemented in the European Union, and have proved successful in some countries, however, has been unable to eradicate the infection in others despite the use of vast economical resources. A relevant prob… Read more

Animals + Humans = One health

The second edition of the EU Veterinary Week, organised in partnership with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) will run from 28 September to 4 October 2009. The concept of an EU Veterinary Week was created in 2008, and the key slogan retained for the EU Veterinary Week 2009 is “Animals + Humans = One health” which stresses the link between animal and public health… Read more

Genetic and virulence-phenotype characterization of serotypes 2 and 9 of Streptococcus suis swine isolates

International Microbiology publish this investigation article

The aim of this study was to analyze the genetic characteristics and virulence phenotypes of Streptococcus suis, specifically, in clinical isolates of serotypes 2 and 9 (n = 195), obtained from diverse geographical areas across Spain. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) typing identified 97 genetic profiles, 68% of which were represented by single isolates, indicative of a substantial genetic diversity among the S. suis isolates analyzed. Five PFGE profiles accounted for 33.3% of the isolates and were isolated from 38% of the herds in nine different provinces, indicative of the bacterium`s… Read more

Combined application of social network and cluster detection analyses for temporal-spatial characterization of animal movements in Salamanca, Spain

Investigation article published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine

Social network analysis was used in combination with techniques for detection of temporal-spatial clusters to identify operations at high risk of receiving or dispatching pigs, from January through December 2005, in the Spanish province of Salamanca. The temporal-spatial structure of the network was explicitly analyzed to estimate the statistical significance of observed clusters. Significant (P<0.01) temporal-spatial clusters identified were grouped into two compartments based on the nature and extent of the contacts among operations within the clusters. One of the compartments was identified… Read more
