Utilization of lactose and presence of the phospho-B-galactosidase (lacG) gene in Lactococcus garvieae isolates from different sources

Investigation article published in International Microbiology


This study evaluates the utilization of lactose (Lac) and the presence of the phospho-B-galactosidase (lacG) gene as markers for distinguishing between fish (Lac-/lacG-) and dairy isolates (Lac+/lacG+) of Lactococcus garvieae, using a panel of L. garvieae isolates from different sources. None of the fish isolates produced acid from lactose (Lac-), however Lac-/lacG- isolates were observed in pigs, cows, birds and humans. Most of the dairy isolates (77.8%) were Lac+/lacG+, but some dairy isolates did not produce acid from this sugar. Data in the present study show that the ability to metabolize… Read more

Ante-mortem testing wild fallow deer for bovine tuberculosis

Investigation published in Veterinary Microbiology


This study aimed to maximize the sensitivity of bovine tuberculosis detection in living wild fallow deer (Dama dama) under field conditions. We evaluated the rapid test (RT; CervidTB STAT-PAK Assay, Chembio Diagnostic Systems, Inc., USA) in comparison with the comparative cervical skin test (CCT). A total of 134 fallow deer were captured between January and March 2008. At time 0, 0.1 ml of avian purified protein derivative (avian PPD; Cooper-Zeltia, Spain), 0.1 ml bovine PPD (Cooper-Zeltia, Spain), 0.1 ml negative control PBS and 0.1 ml of a positive control (the mitogen phytohaemagglutinin, P… Read more

Development of epidemiological models to analyse the risk of entry of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus and Newcastle disease virus into Spain

PhD Thesis defense by Fernando Sánchez-Vizcaíno Buendía at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


The Spanish poultry sector is considered the third most important of the European Union (EU). This sector results in an estimated income of 2.73 billion of Euros to the country’s economy. Therefore, it is a necessity to keep it free of diseases that may weaken it. Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) and Newcastle disease (ND) are considered the two most devastating infectious diseases of poultry that a country may suffer. Spain reported an outbreak of HPAI and other of ND in poultry farms in 2009. The HPAI outbreak occurred in a laying hens flock of Almoguera (Guadalajara) and resulted in… Read more

Enfermedades Infecciosas y Microbiología Clínica

Prudent use of antimicrobial agents: not just for humans

Investigation article published in Enfermedades Infecciosas y Microbiología Clínica


The use of antimicrobial agents (AA) is required for the treatment of infectious diseases, but, at the same time, is the main cause for the selection of antimicrobial resistant bacteria. The wide use of AA in human medicine is a key cause of this problem, but not the only one, as other ‘‘non-human’’ uses of AA are also contributing to the alarming increase of resistant bacteria.… Read more

Avian Pathology: journal of the W.V.P.A

Quantification of the risk for introduction of virulent Newcastle disease virus into Spain through legal trade of live poultry from European Union countries

Avian Pathology: journal of the W.V.P.A publish this investigation article


Newcastle disease (ND) causes large economic losses in poultry production worldwide. Spain has reported two ND epidemics in poultry farms since 1993, the most recent in 2009. The recent increase in the number of ND epidemics reported in Spain and in other European Union (EU) member countries along with the failure to identify the source of the Spanish epidemics caused concern over the vulnerability that Spain has to the disease. Some of the epidemics recently reported in EU member states were associated with legal introduction of live poultry; the large number of susceptible species annually i… Read more

Genetic analysis of Streptococcus suis isolates recovered from diseased and healthy carrier pigs at different stages of production on a pig farm

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Journal


Streptococcus suis isolates from pigs at different stages of production on a farrow-to-finish farm were characterised by serotyping, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and production of muramidase-released protein, extracellular factor and suilysin. S. suis was isolated from the tonsils of 81/287 (28.2%) healthy pigs: 16/47 (34%) post-weaning, 18/47 (38.3%) transition, 18/47 (38.3%) fattening and 29/146 (19.9%) sows. A total of 127 S. suis isolates were analysed: 14 from diseased pigs at the post-weaning stage and 113 from the tonsils of healthy pigs. Serotypes 2, 4, 9, 14 and 1/14 were i… Read more

Células presentadoras de antígeno: células dendríticas y su papel en la lengua azul

New article published in Anales de la Real Academia de Ciencias Veterinarias de Andalucía Oriental


Las células presentadoras de antígeno (CPA) desempeñan un papel fundamental en el desarrollo de la respuesta inmunitaria mediante el procesamiento y la presentación de antígenos, así como a través de distintos estímulos que favorecen la proliferación y diferenciación linfocitaria. Entre las CPA, las células dendríticas (CDs)son consideradas como las más eficientes en las funciones de presentación. En este trabajo se abordan aspectos generales relacionados con la localización, estructura y función de estas células, así como con su importante papel en la instauración de la repuesta inmunitaria.… Read more
