Evolution of Specific Antibodies and Proviral DNA in Milk of Small Ruminants Infected by Small Ruminant Lentivirus

Viruses-Basel publish this investigation article

The diagnosis of Small Ruminant Lentivirus (SRLV) is based on clinical signs, pathological lesions and laboratory testing. No standard reference test for the diagnosis of maedi visna has been validated up to the present, and it is puzzling that tests which detect antibodies against the virus and tests which detect the proviral genome may render opposite results. The aim of this study was to evaluate the presence in milk throughout a lactation period of specific antibodies by ELISA and of SRLV proviral DNA by a PCR of the highly conserved pol region. A six-month study was conducted with the mil… Read more

Declaración del foco de rabia canina en Toledo

Canine rabies outbreak in Toledo (Spain)

Desde el año 1978 hasta el pasado 1 de junio de 2013, España estaba libre de rabia terrestre. Las campañas de vacunación llevadas a cabo en perros dieron excelente resultado, erradicando la enfermedad de todo el territorio nacional. Únicamente en las Ciudades Autónomas de Ceuta y Melilla se han notificado casos de rabia de forma esporádica, en animales importados del norte de África o Marruecos. Ambas ciudades tienen un programa de vacunación antirrábica obligatoria y gratuita para perros, gatos, hurones con el que consiguen elevadas coberturas.…

Climate change as a constant biological threat. New Terrorism: are we ready?

New article published in Documentos de opinión del Instituto Español de Estudios Estratégicos

Changes in climate have always occurred but we are currently undergoing a climatic change without precedent, where natural causes play a secondary role and where the human race, with its technological advances, has the capacity to cause great catastrophes. In the near future, control of the climate could become a weapon of mass destruction, used by countries for security and defence, or for obtaining power. This type of climate control could also have side effects that compromise the biosecurity of people, animals and plants.… Read more

Antimicrobial Resistance in Indicator Escherichia coli Isolates from Free-Ranging Livestock and Sympatric Wild Ungulates in a Natural Environment (Northeastern Spain)

Applied and Environmental Microbiology publish this investigation article

Antimicrobial resistance was assessed in indicator Escherichia coli isolates from free-ranging livestock and sympatric wild boar (Sus scrofa) and Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica) in a National Game Reserve in northeastern Spain. The frequency of antimicrobial resistance was low (0% to 7.9%). However, resistance to an extended-spectrum cephalosporin and fluoroquinolones was detected.… Read more

Journal of Infection in Developing Countries

First identification of Salmonella Urbana and Salmonella Ouakam in humans in Africa

Investigation article published in Journal of Infection in Developing Countries

INTRODUCTION: Salmonella infections are increasing worldwide, but there are few reports on Salmonella surveillance in African countries and other developing countries. This has made it difficult to estimate the actual burden of salmonellosis, especially in Africa. This study was conducted in a neglected Northern Region of Ghana where there are no previous data on Salmonella serotypes. METHODOLOGY: Standard microbiological tests were used for isolation, identification, and serotyping. Micro-dilution was used for the antimicrobial susceptibility tests. RESULTS: Four serotypes of Salmonella were … Read more

The use of infrared thermography as a non-invasive method for fever detection in sheep infected with bluetongue virus

Investigation published in The Veterinary Journal

Fever, which is closely linked to viraemia, is considered to be both the main and the earliest clinical sign in sheep infected with bluetongue virus (BTV). The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential use of infrared thermography (IRT) for early detection of fever in sheep experimentally infected with bluetongue virus serotype 1 (BTV-1) and serotype 8 (BTV-8). This would reduce animal stress during experimental assays and assist in the development of a screening method for the identification of fever in animals suspected of being infected with BTV. Rectal and infrared eye temperatures w… Read more

Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) carriage in different free-living wild animal species in Spain

The Veterinary Journal publish this investigation article

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a life-threatening pathogen in humans and its presence in animals is a public health concern. The aim of this study was to measure the prevalence of MRSA in free-living wild animals. Samples from red deer (n=273), Iberian ibex (n=212), Eurasian Griffon vulture (n=40) and wild boar (n=817) taken from different areas in Spain between June 2008 and November 2011 were analyzed. Characterization of the isolates was performed by spa typing, multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) and antimicrobial susceptibility testing. A low prevalence of MRSA was f… Read more

Microbial Drug Resistance (Larchmont, N.Y.)

Co-Occurrence of ACSSuT and Cephalosporin Resistance Phenotypes Is Mediated by int1-associated elements in nontyphoidal Salmonella enterica from human infections in Spain

Investigation published in Microbial Drug Resistance (Larchmont, N.Y.)

A screening of antimicrobial resistance and its genetic determinants has been performed on 300 Salmonella enterica isolates collected during 2004-2008 from human infections in Spain. Salmonella Typhimurium and Salmonella Enteritidis were the major serotypes, which were found with similar frequencies covering 80% of the bacterial collection. Salmonella Typhimurium isolates frequently shared low susceptibility to antimicrobials of the penta-resistance phenotype (ACSSuT) and/or cephalosporin resistance. The ACSSuT profile was found closely linked to int1-associated gene cassettes, with major elem… Read more

Development and evaluation of an IS711-based loop mediated isothermal amplification method (LAMP) for detection of Brucella spp. on clinical samples

Research in Veterinary Science publish this investigation article

DNA-based methods have emerged as an additional tool for Brucella infection-confirmation at a herd level. However, their implementation may require the use of specialized equipment. In this context the recently developed loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) technique may constitute an additional and cost-effective tool for rapid and specific DNA detection, especially in low income areas. In the present study the usefulness of a newly developed LAMP assay aiming at the multicopy-IS711 sequence was assessed on a variety of clinical samples (n=81 from abortions and ewes; cattle, n=3; swi… Read more

Social network analysis of equidae movements and its application to risk-based surveillance and to control of spread of potential equidae diseases

Investigation published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases

Movements of animals and animal products are one of the most important ways of disease introduction and spread between regions and countries. Maybe one of the most complex animal species in terms of diversity of uses, nature and extent of movements are equidae, for which animal movement records are usually not available. The study presented here is the first characterization of a complete and reliable network of equidae movements in Castile and Leon, which is one of the most important equidae production regions of Spain. Social network analysis and space-time cluster analysis were used to desc… Read more

Fundamento inmunológico de las pruebas diagnósticas ante mortem de la tuberculosis

Albéitar publish this article

La tuberculosis en rumiantes domésticos está producida principalmente por Mycobacterium bovis y en menor medida por M. caprae, que es el principal agente etiológico de la tuberculosis caprina en España (Aranaz y col., 2003, Palmer, 2007, Crawshaw y col., 2008). Ambos agentes etiológicos pueden afectar también al hombre, lo que convierte a la enfermedad en una zoonosis relevante en salud pública (Rodríguez y col., 2009). La enfermedad es generalmente de curso crónico y la infección se produce principal¬mente por vía aerógena, por lo que las lesiones granulomatosas características aparecen en pu… Read more
