Evaluación de pruebas diagnósticas de tuberculosis bovina mediante análisis bayesiano

Oral communication in 1er Congreso Internacional de la Sociedad Iberoamericana de Epidemiología Veterinaria y Medicina Preventiva: enfoques prácticos para la prevención, el control y la erradicación de enfermedades


Los programas de lucha frente a la tuberculosis bovina (TB), zoonosis de importancia mundial, se basan en la detección y eliminación de los animales infectados mediante la aplicación de pruebas diagnósticas (intradermotuberculinización, IDTB, y detección de interferón-gamma, IFNγ). La sensibilidad (S) y especificidad (E) de estas pruebas se ha evaluado tradicionalmente mediante la aplicación de una técnica de referencia imperfecta (cultivo y/o observación de lesiones), lo que puede sesgar las estimaciones obtenidas. En este estudio la S y E de ambas pruebas se estimó mediante un análisis … Read more

PLoS ONE

An inter-laboratory validation of a Real Time PCR assay to measure host excretion of bacterial pathogens, particularly of Mycobacterium bovis

Investigation article published in PLoS ONE


Advances in the diagnosis of Mycobacterium bovis infection in wildlife hosts may benefit the development of sustainable approaches to the management of bovine tuberculosis in cattle. In the present study, three laboratories from two different countries participated in a validation trial to evaluate the reliability and reproducibility of a real time PCR assay in the detection and quantification of M. bovis from environmental samples. The sample panels consisted of negative badger faeces spiked with a dilution series of M. bovis BCG Pasteur and of field samples of faeces from badgers of unknown … Read more

Estudio de parásitos de interés sanitario procedentes de heces caninas y felinas en arenas de parques de juego infantiles de la Comunidad de Madrid

Estudio de parásitos de interés sanitario procedentes de heces caninas y felinas en arenas de parques de juego infantiles de la Comunidad de Madrid

This book has been published by Editorial Complutense / Centro VISAVET


Los animales de compañía, especialmente perros y gatos, juegan un importante papel en la sociedad. Su contribución a mejorar el bienestar físico, psíquico, social y emocional, tanto de los niños como de los adultos(en particular de los ancianos) ha sido ampliamente defendida y difundida en numerosas publicaciones. Pero, como contrapartida, no hay que olvidar que convivir con un perro o un gato puede suponer, en algunos casos, un riesgo para la salud de propietarios y también para el resto de la población. La transmisión de ciertas enfermedades a las personas se debe, en primera instancia, a l… Read more

Behavioural Processes

Drying eggs to inhibit bacteria: Incubation during laying in a cavity nesting passerine

Investigation published in Behavioural Processes


Early incubation has been suggested as a defensive adaptation against potentially pathogenic bacteria colonizing avian eggshells in the wild. The inhibitory mechanisms underlying this adaptation are poorly understood and only recent experimental evidence demonstrates that keeping eggs dry is a proximate mechanism for the antimicrobial effects of avian incubation. We estimated partial incubation (the bouts of incubation that some birds perform during the egg-laying period, days of lay 3-5 in our population) intensity of female pied flycatchers breeding in nest-boxes using data loggers that allo… Read more

ArmA methyltransferase in monophasic Salmonella enterica isolated from food

Investigation published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy


The 16S rRNA methyltransferase ArmA is a worldwide emerging determinant that confers high-level resistance to most clinically relevant aminoglycosides. We report the identification and characterization of a multidrug resistant Salmonella enterica subspecies I. 4,12:i:- isolate recovered from chicken meat sampled in a supermarket on February 2009 in La Reunion, a French island in the Indian Ocean. Susceptibility testing showed an unusually high-level resistance to gentamicin as well as to ampicillin, third generation cephalosporins and amoxicillin/clavulanate. Molecular analysis of the 16S rRNA… Read more

Infection of Eurasian badgers (Meles meles) with Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium avium complex in Spain

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Journal


The prevalence, distribution and pathology related to infection with Mycobacterium bovis and other mycobacteria were determined in trapped (n=36) and road-killed (n=121) badgers in Spain from 2006 to 2010. The prevalence of M. bovis based on bacteriological culture from road-killed badgers was 8/121 (6.6%) and from trapped badgers was 0/36 (0%). Tuberculosis/M. bovis infection was evident in 15/121 (12.4%) road-killed badgers when bacteriology and histopathology were combined. Mycobacterium avium complex was isolated by culture from the tracheal aspirate of 1/36 (2.8%) trapped badgers and from… Read more

Weissella ceti sp. nov., isolated from beaked whales (Mesoplodon bidens)

Investigation article published in International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology


During an investigation into the microbiota of beaked whales, nine isolates were obtained from different organs of four animals. Isolates were Gram-positive, catalase-negative short rod-shaped or coccoid organisms. A phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences of these isolates allocated them to the genus Weissella, showing 96.3% and 96.0% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity with Weissella viridescens and Weissella minor, respectively. On the basis of phenotypic, physiological and phylogenetic evidences, it is proposed that the unknown isolates from whales are classified as a new spec… Read more
