Interacciones ecológicas aves-bacterias: implicación durante el desarrollo de los pollos en el nido

Sonia González Braojos defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid

The effects of bacteria on the development of birds in the nest have been barely studied under natural conditions and most of our knowledge about this topic derives from poultry as interactions between potentially pathogenic bacteria and chickens have economic and public health implications. In wild birds, there is scant evidence suggesting negative effects of gut bacteria on nestling growth. However not only gut bacteria may have effects on nestling growth as other microbiota such as those existing on the nest or on skin could affect development. Early development is a crucial determinant of … Read more

Literature review of surveillance system and approaches for the early detection of new, exotic and re-emerging diseases

Poster presented in Society for Veterinary Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine 2014 Annual Conference

In recent years, novel methods have been developed to improve the early detection of exotic, new and reemerging diseases. These approaches, which are mainly risk‐based, have allowed to characterise better the patterns of disease presence and spread, as well as the populations and areas at higher risk, in order to prioritise surveillance and optimise resources. The aim of this review was to evaluate recent progress regarding novel early detection methods that could improve sensitivity and cost‐effectiveness while respecting the legal requirements that apply to conventional surveilla… Read more

Evidence of Leishmania infantum infection in rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in a natural area in Madrid, Spain

Investigation article published in BioMed Research International (Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology)

Leishmaniasis is one of most important neglected zoonosis and remains endemic in at least 88 developing countries in the world. In addition, anthropogenic environmental changes in urban areas are leading to its emergency world-wide. Zoonotic leishmaniasis control might only be achieved by an integrated approach targeting both the human host and the animal reservoirs, which in certain sylvatic cycles are yet to be identified. Recently, hares have been pointed out as competent reservoirs of Leishmania infantum in Spain, but the role of other lagomorphs has not been clarified. Here, 69 rabb… Read more

The impact of a specific blend of essential oil components and sodium butyrate in feed on growth performance and Salmonella counts in experimentally challenged broilers

Poultry science publish this investigation article

Essential oils (EO) and short-chain fatty acids have potential antimicrobial activity in broilers. This study aimed to investigate the effect of a specific blend of EO and a combination of this blend of EO with sodium-butyrate on growth performance and Salmonella colonization in broilers. A total of 480 one-day-old male broilers were distributed into 5 treatments (8 pens per treatment and 12 birds per pen) and reared during 42 d in experimental conditions. Dietary treatments consisted of the addition of different doses of EO (0 mg/kg, control; 50 mg/kg, EO50 and 100 mg/kg, EO100) or a combinat… Read more

The role of wildlife in bluetongue virus maintenance in Europe: Lessons learned after the natural infection in Spain

Investigation article published in Virus Research

Bluetongue (BT) is a re-emergent vector-borne viral disease of domestic and wild ruminants caused by bluetongue virus (BTV), a member of the genus Orbivirus. A complex multi-host, multi-vector and multi-pathogen (26 serotypes) transmission and maintenance network has recently emerged in Europe, and wild ruminants are regarded as an important node in this network. This review analyses the reservoir role of wild ruminants in Europe, identifying gaps in knowledge and proposing actions. Wild ruminant species are indicators of BTV circulation. Excepting the mouflon (Ovis aries musimon), European wi… Read more
