Characterization of protection afforded by a bivalent virus-like particle vaccine against Bluetongue Virus serotypes 1 and 4 in sheep

PLoS ONE publish this investigation article


BACKGROUND: Bluetongue virus (BTV) is an economically important, arthropod borne, emerging pathogen in Europe, causing disease mainly in sheep and cattle. Routine vaccination for bluetongue would require the ability to distinguish between vaccinated and infected individuals (DIVA). Current vaccines are effective but are not DIVA. Virus-like particles (VLPs) are highly immunogenic structural mimics of virus particles, that only contain a subset of the proteins present in a natural infection. VLPs therefore offer the potential for the development of DIVA compatible bluetongue vaccines. METHODOL… Read more

The Committee on World Food Security bet for small producers

The CFS of the Organization United Nations meets these days in the FAO headquarters in Rome from 17 to 22 October, to discuss what policies can help increase food security, and how they can reduce the problems that threaten small producers


Key issues arising from the CFS. The CFS arises what mechanisms can improve the prospects for further investment in agriculture, together with an improvement of the differences between investment and needs. The publication Agricultural Outlook 2011-2020 OECD-FAO forecasts growth of agricultural production of only 1.7% in this decade, from 2.6% the past decade.
Thus, under this global picture of the keynote speech about CFS tends to fix Principles for Responsible Agricultural Investment FAO, IFAD, UNCTAD and the World Bank. Therefore, the document submitted by the Committee on World Food Security precise conditions that must prevail for corporate investment is sensitive to small farmers so that they and investors can benefit from this factor. At the same time require investments and public policies.

New challenges of CFS. In addition focusing on the pressing problems today, the CFS will pose new challenges that increase the food security and nutrition.
Among the challenges proposed by this committee include:… Read more

Compendio de guiones para clases teóricas en la asignatura Inmunología en Veterinaria V: Inmunidad protectora

New online article published in Reduca


Como término a este compendio de guiones, el presente artículo se centra en los conceptos de inmunidad protectora, de gran importancia en medicina veterinaria. Nos adentramos en el conocimiento de que las superficies corporales, piel y mucosas son las puertas de entrada para agentes invasores, patógenos o no, y es a este nivel donde se les intenta repeler y/ o destruir. Así mismo, en que la respuesta frente a virus, bacterias, hongos y parásitos es muy específica para cada uno de ellos, ya que presentan estrategias concretas y diferentes a la hora de invadir y diseminarse en el hospedador. Tam… Read more

Compendio de guiones para clases teóricas en la asignatura Inmunología en Veterinaria IV: regulación y alteraciones del sistema inmunitario

Reduca published this online article


El sistema inmunitario es un sistema de vigilancia y defensa muy sofisticado, pero con el objeto de asegurar reacciones apropiadas en calidad y cantidad se requiere una constante regulación del mismo. Así mismo, debe ser capaz de diferenciar claramente los antígenos propios de los ajenos y tras el reconocimiento, los componentes propios deben ser tolerados y los ajenos eliminados. En ocasiones se producen alteraciones y fallos en la naturaleza, intensidad y duración de la defensa inmunitaria, generando diversos tipos de patologías. Respuestas exageradas dan lugar a la aparición de hipersensibi… Read more

Reduca published this online article


En este artículo II se pretende dar a conocer las bases y mecanismos de la respuesta inmunitaria de carácter adaptativo, la cual presenta una dualidad de acción: respuesta de base humoral y respuesta de base celular. Estos dos tipos de respuestas inmunitarias adaptativas son decisivos para la eliminación de antígenos exógenos y endógenos, así como para el control de infecciones producidas por microorganismos extra e intracelulares. Así mismo se describe el sistema del complemento como componente principal de los sistemas inmunitarios innato y adaptativo, y la actuación de las citoquinas como … Read more

Fluoroquinolone resistance in Streptococcus suis

José Antonio Escudero García-Calderón defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


Streptococcus suis is a worldwide-distributed zoonotic agent affecting pig and man. In industrialized countries it is mainly regarded as an important economic burden to the pig industry that only sporadically causes infections in humans. Nevertheless, in several developing countries in South East Asia, S. suis is one of the main causes of meningitis in humans. Also, S. suis has been reported as the causative agent of large, high-mortality outbreaks among the Chinese population, during the summers of 1998, 1999 and 2005. Mortality was high as a result of the onset of a Toxic Shock Syndrome. Alt… Read more

Associations between biovar and virulence factor genes in Pasteurella multocida isolates from pigs in Spain

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Record


Two hundred and five isolates of Pasteurella multocida from pigs were phenotypically and genetically characterised by determining their biovar, capsular type, virulence-associated genes and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) profiles. All isolates were identified as P multocida subspecies multocida and most were assigned to biovar 3 (58 per cent) and biovar 2 (39.5 per cent). Biovar 1 represented 2.4 per cent of the isolates. According to the capsular type, the great majority of the isolates (79.0 per cent) belonged to capsular type A, 18.5 per cent belonged to capsular type D and 2.4 per… Read more

Factors influencing the performance of an interferon-y assay for diagnosis of tuberculosis in goats

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Journal


The interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) assay is an effective tool for the diagnosis of tuberculosis in goats. The objectives of this study were to evaluate factors that might affect assay performance: (1) 0.1%, 0.3% and 0.5% phenol in purified protein derivative (PPD, tuberculin); (2) dialysis of PPD; and (3) delaying antigenic stimulation of blood samples for 8, 16 and 24 h after collection. The assay was performed in duplicate with two cut-off points. Dialysis of PPD reduced test sensitivity, whereas the concentration of phenol did not significantly affect test outcome. Delaying antigenic stimulat… Read more
