Detection of anti-Leishmania infantum antibodies in sylvatic lagomorphs from an epidemic area of Madrid using the indirect immunofluorescence antibody test

Investigation published in Veterinary Parasitology


An outbreak of human leishmaniosis was confirmed in the southwest of the province of Madrid, Spain, between July 2009 and December 2012. Incidence of Leishmania infection in dogs was unchanged in this period, prompting a search for alternative sylvatic infection reservoirs. We evaluated exposure to Leishmania in serum samples from animals in the area with an indirect immunofluorescence test (IFAT). Using promastigotes from six culture passages and a 1/25 threshold titer, we found anti-L. infantum seroreactivity in 9.3% of cats (4 of 43), 45.7% of rabbits (16/35) and 74.1% of hares… Read more

Risk factors associated with negative in-vivo diagnostic results in bovine tuberculosis-infected cattle in Spain

BMC Veterinary Research publish this investigation article


Background Despite great effort and investment incurred over decades to control bovine tuberculosis (bTB), it is still one of the most important zoonotic diseases in many areas of the world. Test-and-slaughter strategies, the basis of most bTB eradication programs carried out worldwide, have demonstrated its usefulness in the control of the disease. However, in certain countries, eradication has not been achieved due in part to limitations of currently available diagnostic tests. In this study, results of in-vivo and post-mortem diagnostic tests performed on 3,614 animals from 152 bTB-infe… Read more

Identification and characterization of an emergent aminoglycoside resistance mechanism: the 16S rRNA methyltransferases

Laura Hidalgo del Rio defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


The discovery of antibiotics at the beginning of the 20th century constituted one of the biggest revolutions in modern medicine. However, the euphoric feeling of overcoming the challenge of bacterial-caused diseases did not last. Shortly after the initiation of antibiotics use, bacteria started to develop diverse ways of resistance, so the higher usage of antibiotics, the higher incidence of resistant bacteria. Nowadays, antibiotic resistance is a race where the development of bacterial resistance mechanisms is faster than the discovery of new antibacterial molecules. Not for nothing, antibiot… Read more

Cambiamento climatico e guerra ambientale. Un nuovo terrorismo?

Geopolitica publish this article


I cambiamenti climatici sono sempre esistiti. Oggi assistiamo ad un cambiamento climatico globale senza precedenti, in cui le cause naturali giocano un ruolo secondario e dove la mano dell’uomo, attraverso il progresso tecnologico, può provocare enormi catastrofi. Il controllo climatico potrebbe diventare, in un futuro non molto lontano, un’arma di distruzione di massa, potendo essere utilizzata dagli Stati per conseguire i propri fini di sicurezza, di difesa o di potere. Così facendo si potrebbero verificare tutta una serie di effetti collaterali tali da influenzare la biosicurezza di animali… Read more

Assessment of genetic diversity of zoonotic Brucella spp. recovered from livestock in Egypt using multiple locus VNTR analysis

BioMed Research International (Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology) publish this investigation article


Brucellosis is endemic in most parts of Egypt, where it is caused mainly by Brucella melitensis biovar 3, and affects cattle and small ruminants in spite of ongoing efforts devoted to its control. Knowledge of the predominant Brucella species/strains circulating in a region is a prerequisite of a brucellosis control strategy. For this reason a study aiming at the evaluation of the phenotypic and genetic heterogeneity of a panel of 17 Brucella spp. isolates recovered from domestic ruminants (cattle, buffalo, sheep, and goat) from four governorates during a period of five years (2002-2007) was c… Read more

Assessment of an Oral Mycobacterium bovis BCG Vaccine and an Inactivated M. bovis Preparation for Wild Boar in Terms of Adverse Reactions, Vaccine Strain Survival, and Uptake by Nontarget Species

Clinical and Vaccine Immunology publish this investigation article


Wildlife vaccination is increasingly considered an option for tuberculosis control. We combined data from laboratory trials and an on-going field trial to assess the risk of oral BCG vaccine and a prototype heat-inactivated Mycobacterium bovis preparation for Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa). We studied adverse reactions, BCG survival, BCG excretion, and bait uptake by non-target species. No adverse reactions were observed after administration of BCG (n = 27) or inactivated M. bovis (n = 21). BCG was not found at necropsy, 175 to 300 days post-vaccination (n = 27). No BCG excretion was detected… Read more
