Interview to José Manuel Sánchez-Vizcaíno: "Our aim is also the public health"

Interview in Informativo Porcino of ROTECNA


Virus o sanidad animal, cualquiera de estas dos palabras van muy ligadas a José Manuel Sánchez-Vizcaíno, profesor, Doctor en Veterinaria y Catedrático de Sanidad Animal en la Facultad de Veterinaria de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, además de asesor de la OIE y la FAO. Aprovechando que este 2011 la OIE celebra el Año del Veterinario, hemos querido entrevistar a uno de los veterinarios españoles más internacional. Informa Montse Palau para Informativo porcino.… Read more

Brood parasitism is associated with increased bacterial contamination of host eggs: bacterial loads of host and parasitic eggs

Investigation published in Biological Journal of the Linnean Society


Factors related to bacterial environment of nests are of primary interest for understanding the causes of embryo infection and the evolution of antimicrobial defensive traits in birds. Nest visitors such as parasites could act as vectors for bacteria and/or affect the hygienic conditions of nests and hence influence the nest bacterial environment. In the present study, we explored some predictions of this hypothetical scenario in the great spotted cuckoo (Clamator glandarius)–magpie (Pica pica) system of brood parasitism. Great spotted cuckoos visit the nests of their magpie hosts and frequent… Read more

Genome sequence of Lactococcus garvieae 8831, isolated from rainbow trout lactococcosis outbreaks in Spain

Investigation article published in Journal of Bacteriology


Lactococcus garvieae is the etiological agent of lactococcosis, one of the most important disease threats to the sustainability of rainbow trout farming industry. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of Lactococcus garvieae strain 8831, isolated from diseased rainbow trout, which is composed of 2,087,276 bp with a G+C content of 38%… Read more

Genome sequence of Lactococcus garvieae 21881, isolated in a case of human septicaemia

Investigation article published in Journal of Bacteriology


Lactococcus garvieae is a Gram-positive bacterium considered as an important opportunistic emerging human pathogen and also a well recognized fish pathogen. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of Lactococcus garvieae strain 21881 (2,164,557 bp, with a G+C content of 37.9%), which represents the first report of a genome sequence on Lactococcus garvieae… Read more

European 1: A globally important clonal complex of Mycobacterium bovis

Investigation article published in Infection Genetics and Evolution


We have identified a globally important clonal complex of Mycobacterium bovis by deletion analysis of over one thousand strains from over 30 countries. We initially show that over 99% of the strains of M. bovis, the cause of bovine tuberculosis, isolated from cattle in the Republic of Ireland and the UK are closely related and are members of a single clonal complex marked by the deletion of chromosomal region RDEu1 and we named this clonal complex European 1 (Eu1). Eu1 strains were present at less than 14% of French, Portuguese and Spanish isolates of M. bovis but are rare in other mainland Eu… Read more

Microscopical and Immunological Features of Tuberculoid Granulomata and Cavitary Pulmonary Tuberculosis in Naturally Infected Goats

Investigation published in Journal of Comparative Pathology


Caprine tuberculosis is caused by bacteria of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium caprae). Although typical tuberculoid granulomata are usually observed in the lungs and lymph nodes of infected goats, the presence of cavitary lesions with exuberant mycobacterial growth is also a common feature in this species. The aim of this study was to characterize the immunological mechanisms that lead to liquefaction and cavity formation by comparing granulomata and cavitary lesions. Samples from animals positive by skin testing were collected for microscopical an… Read more

Streptococcus rupicaprae sp. nov., isolated from a Pyrenean chamois (Rupricapra pyrenaica)

International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology publish this investigation article


Biochemical and molecular genetic studies were performed on an unknown Gram-positive catalase-negative coccus-shaped organism isolated from clinical samples of a Pyrenean chamois. The microorganism was identified as a streptococcal species based on its cellular morphological and biochemical tests. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison studies confirmed its identification as a member of the genus Streptococcus, but the organism did not correspond to any species of this genus. The nearest phylogenetic relative of the unknown coccus from chamois was Streptococcus ovis (95.9% 16S rRNA gene sequence si… Read more
