Campylobacter and Salmonella prevalence in chicken in the EU

New post in Weblog Madri+d de Seguridad Alimentaria y Alimentación


The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published the results of a survey on Campylobacter and Salmonella in chicken at slaughterhouses in the European Union. In most EU Member States, a high prevalence of Campylobacter was found in chickens, whereas Salmonella was less frequently detected. These zoonoses are the cause of the two most reported food-borne diseases in humans in the EU: campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis. This was EFSA’s sixth baseline survey on food-borne bacteria carried out at EU level and the first to directly investigate the presence of Campylobacter and Salmonella i… Read more

BMC Microbiology

Analysis of the genome content of Lactococcus garvieae by genomic interspecies microarray hybridization

Investigation article published in BMC Microbiology


Lactococcus garvieae is a bacterial pathogen that affects different animal species in addition to humans. Despite the widespread distribution and emerging clinical significance of L. garvieae in both veterinary and human medicine, there is almost a complete lack of knowledge about the genetic content of this microorganism. In the present study, the genomic content of L. garvieae CECT 4531 was analysed using bioinformatics tools and microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) experiments. Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis IL1403 and Streptococcus pneumoniae TIGR4 were used as refere… Read more

Bluetongue virus serotypes 1 and 4 in red deer, Spain

Emerging Infectious Diseases publish this investigation article


We studied the potential of red deer as bluetongue maintenance hosts and sentinels. Deer maintained detectable bluetongue virus (BTV) serotype 4 RNA for 1 year after the virus was cleared from livestock. However, the virus was not transmitted to yearlings. BTV serotype 1 RNA was detected in red deer immediately after its first detection in cattle… Read more

Cómo Controlar la tuberculosis en reservorios silvestres

Caza Mayor publish this article


La tuberculosis bovina (TBb) es una enfermedad infecciosa del ganado bovino que puede afectar a muchos otros mamíferos, incluyendo al hombre, así como muy ocasionalmente a aves. Es causada por la bacteria Mycobacterium bovis, un patógeno intracelular bastante resistente en el medio. Como zoonosis (enfermedad transmisible entre los animales y el hombre), la TBb es objeto de control en los países desarrollados. En Europa, el progresivo control de la cabaña vacuna mediante rigurosas campañas de testaje y eliminación de los bovinos infectados, ha permitido erradicar la TBb de muchos países.
