Application of the Enfer chemiluminescent multiplex ELISA system for the detection of Mycobacterium bovis infection in goats

Veterinary Microbiology publish this investigation article

A study was conducted to optimise a multiplex serological immunoassay for use in identification of goats infected with Mycobacterium bovis. To assess assay specificity, 31 goats with a history of being free from M. bovis infection were used. To determine assay sensitivity, 180 Single Intradermal Comparative Tuberculin test (SICTT) positive goats were recruited. Additionally, 286 SICTT negative goats classed as potentially exposed animals present in the same positive herds were also included in the study. The results of the assay demonstrated a specificity of 100%. The multiplex assay detected … Read more

ASF: A Brief overview of the past, present and ...future?

3tres3.com publish this article

African Swine Fever (ASF) is probably the most complex disease affecting many pigs. An illness that made us Spaniards suffer a lot from 1960 to 1995 and that for some years has been very active in Africa and more recently, in Europe, where it is again posing a threat to the pig sector. Despite scientific efforts by different research groups in several countries, we still don’t have a vaccine against this disease, so the main weapons continue to be early detection and rapid implementation of important control measures. To recall some of the most critical points about ASF we have asked some ques… Read more

Diagnosis of Caprine Tuberculosis using ESAT-6/CFP-10 Peptides in Persistenly Infected Herds

Investigation article published in Journal of Comparative Pathology

A caprine tuberculosis eradication programme based on the comparative tuberculin skin test is being implemented in the southeast of Spain. Although initial progress was promising, the programme subsequently stalled. Two observations made were that the presence of paratuberculosis in the flocks and the desensitization caused by repeat tuberculin skin test could lead to a decrease in the skin test sensitivity… Read more

Sources of Variation in Enterococci and Enterobacteriaceae Loads in Nestlings of a Hole-Nesting Passerine

Investigation published in Ardea

Gut bacterial loads in avian nestlings may be affected by factors such as climate, seasonality and brood size. There is no published information on this subject for wild birds, despite its potential importance for nestling welfare and growth. We studied the associations of these factors with abundances of two common gut bacterial types, enterococci and Enterobacteriaceae, in nestling Pied Flycatchers Ficedula hypoleuca in central Spain. To that end, we obtained faecal samples from 54 broods (102 nestlings) on day 7 and 13 after hatching, for detection and estimation of bacterial abundance. Ent… Read more

Septicemic salmonellosis caused by Salmonella Hessarek in wintering and migrating song thrushes (Turdus philomelos) in Spain

Journal of Wildlife Diseases publish this investigation article

We investigated two mortality events in wintering and migrating Song Thrushes (Turdus philomelos) in Catalonia, northeastern Spain in 2009 and 2010. Both episodes occurred in late February to mid-March during the spring migration. Salmonellosis produced by the serotype Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Hessarek (S. Hessarek) was identified as the cause of death in both episodes. Poor body condition, marked splenomegaly, and microscopic disseminated intravascular coagulation with numerous intravascular and tissular bacteria were the most consistent findings. Macro-restriction profili… Read more

Molecular diagnosis of lobomycosis-like disease in a bottlenose dolphin in captivity

Investigation article published in Medical Mycology

We report the diagnosis and molecular characterization of lobomycosis-like lesions in a captive bottlenose dolphin. The clinical picture and the absence of growth in conventional media resembled the features associated with Lacazia loboi. However sequencing of ribosomal DNA and further phylogenetic analyses showed a novel sequence more related to Paracoccidioides brasilensis than to L. loboi. Moreover, the morphology of the yeast cells differed from those L. loboi causing infections humans. These facts suggest that the dolphin lobomycosis-like lesions might have been be caused by different a d… Read more
