Dissemination of antimicrobial-resistant clones of Salmonella enterica among domestic animals, wild animals, and humans

Foodborne Pathogens and Disease publish this investigation article


Abstract Non-typhoidal salmonellosis is an important zoonotic disease caused by Salmonella enterica. This work focuses on the identification of Salmonella enterica clonal strains which, presenting a wide distribution potential, express resistance determinants that compromise effectiveness of the antimicrobial therapy. The screening was performed on 506 Salmonella enterica isolates from animals and humans, which were characterized by serovar and phage typing, genome macrorestriction and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, and detection of phenotypic and genotypic traits for antimicrobial resistan… Read more

Sensibilidad y especificidad de técnicas diagnósticas: intradermotuberculinización, interferon-gamma y pruebas serológicas en la detección de tuberculosis en ganado vacuno

Carmen Casal Comendador defended the degree thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the León University


La herramienta fundamental en la lucha contra la tuberculosis bovina es el diagnóstico, ya que la detección de los animales positivos permite eliminarlos de la explotación limitando la fuente de infección. La prueba oficial es la intradermotuberculinización (IDTB) y como prueba complementaria se dispone del test de detección de interferón-gamma (IFN-γ); ambas pruebas están orientadas hacia la respuesta inmune celular (principal implicada tras la infección). La respuesta inmune humoral desarrolla un papel secundario en la misma, porque su aparición es variable y tardía. A pesar de los inco… Read more

Comparison of two PCR and one ELISA techniques for the detection of small ruminant lentiviruses (SRLVs) in milk of sheep and goats

Investigation article published in Research in Veterinary Science


The aim of the present study was to compare the efficiency of two PCR techniques for the diagnosis of small ruminant lentiviruses (SRLVs). Detection of the proviral genome by PCR, though sensitive, is difficult due to the heterogeneity of the SRLV genomes. One of the PCR techniques amplifies a fragment in the pol gene (pol-PCR) and the other PCR targets the LTR region of the proviral genome (LTR-PCR). Milk from 194 sheep and 163 goats from farms in the Central Spain was analyzed by both techniques and compared to results obtained by ELISA. When compared to the serologic assay, the agreement of… Read more

Synanthropic Birds Associated with High Prevalence of Tick-Borne Rickettsiae and with the First Detection of Rickettsia aeschlimannii in Hungary

Investigation article published in Vector borne and zoonotic diseases


The aim of this study was to analyze synanthropic birds as risk factors for introducing ticks and tick-borne pathogens into human settlements, with an emphasis on rickettsiae. Altogether 184 subadult ticks were found on 5846 birds. Tick infestation was most prevalent during the spring. In this sample group the majority of ticks were molecularly identified as Ixodes ricinus, and three individuals collected from the European robin as Hyalomma marginatum marginatum. The latter is the first molecularly confirmed occurrence of this species in Hungary. Rickettsia aeschlimannii was detected in H. mar… Read more

Metagenomic detection of viral pathogens in spanish honeybees: co-infection by aphid lethal paralysis, Israel acute paralysis and lake sinai viruses

Investigation published in PLoS ONE


The situation in Europe concerning honeybees has in recent years become increasingly aggravated with steady decline in populations and/or catastrophic winter losses. This has largely been attributed to the occurrence of a variety of known and "unknown", emerging novel diseases. Previous studies have demonstrated that colonies often can harbour more than one pathogen, making identification of etiological agents with classical methods difficult. By employing an unbiased metagenomic approach, which allows the detection of both unexpected and previously unknown infectious agents, the detection of … Read more

Dynamics and diversity of Escherichia coli in animals and system management of the manure in a commercial farrow-to-finish pig farm

Applied and Environmental Microbiology publish this investigation article


The objective of this study was to determine the dynamics and diversity of Escherichia coli population in animal and environmental lines of a commercial farrow-to-finish pig farm in Spain along a full production cycle (July 2008 to July 2009), with special attention to its antimicrobial resistance and integron presence.In the animal line a total of 256 isolates were collected from pregnant sows (10 samples; 20 isolates), one-week-old piglets (20; 40), unweaned piglets (20; 38), growers (20; 40) and finishers` floor-pen (6; 118 isolates); from the underfloor pits and farm slurry tank environmen… Read more
