The Veterinary Record

Evaluation of the specificity of intradermal tuberculin and serological tests for diagnosis of tuberculosis in alpaca (Vicugna pacos) and llama (Lama glama) herds under field conditions in Peru

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Record


Diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) in camelids is still a challenge mainly due to the lack of standardised diagnostic assays and the limitations regarding sensitivity (Se) and specificity (Sp) of the current diagnostic techniques (Álvarez and others 2012). Accurate diagnosis of the disease in camelids is of increasing importance, especially in Europe, where New World camelid (NWC) populations are growing (Barlow and others 1999, D’Alterio and others 2006, Twomey and others 2012). Furthermore, camelids can be reservoirs of TB infection for other domestic and wild animals and human beings and, there… Read more

Oral Vaccination with Heat Inactivated Mycobacterium bovis Activates the Complement System to Protect against Tuberculosis

PLoS ONE publish this investigation article


Tuberculosis (TB) remains a pandemic affecting billions of people worldwide, thus stressing the need for new vaccines. Defining the correlates of vaccine protection is essential to achieve this goal. In this study, we used the wild boar model for mycobacterial infection and TB to characterize the protective mechanisms elicited by a new heat inactivated Mycobacterium bovis vaccine (IV). Oral vaccination with the IV resulted in significantly lower culture and lesion scores, particularly in the thorax, suggesting that the IV might provide a novel vaccine for TB control with special impact on the … Read more

La OMS alerta de que la resistencia a antibióticos hará que infecciones comunes sean mortales

Interview in Hoy por hoy of Cadena Ser


La OMS ha alertado alerta de que la resistencia a los antibióticos es ya una amenaza mundial, ya que enfermedades comunes se pueden convertir en "potencialmente mortales" por la pérdida de eficacia de los medicamentos. Según ha señalado el Doctor Rafael Cantón, jefe del servicio de microbiología del Hospital Ramón y Cajal, que nos ha acompañado esta mañana para abordar el tema, se trata de "una alerta no solamente a los ciudadanos sino también a los profesionales". También ha estado con nosotros Rosa Mª Lastra, farmacéutica de Madrid, quien ha afirmado que la venta de medicamentos ha cambiado,… Read more

Evaluation of the spatial patterns and risk factors, including backyard pigs, for classical swine fever occurrence in Bulgaria using a Bayesian model

Investigation article published in Geospatial health


The spatial pattern and epidemiology of backyard pig farming and other low bio-security pig production systems and their role in the occurrence of classical swine fever (CSF) is described and evaluated. A spatial Bayesian model was used to explore the risk factors, including human demographics, socioeconomic and environmental factors. The analyses were performed for Bulgaria, which has a large number of backyard farms (96% of all pig farms in the country are classified as backyard farms), and it is one of the countries for which both backyard pig and farm counts were available. Results reveal … Read more

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Staphylococcus aureus Carrying mecC Gene in Animals and Urban Wastewater, Spain

Investigation published in Emerging Infectious Diseases


A new methicillin resistance mechanism gene, a divergent mecA homologue named mecC (formerly mecALGA251), was recently described in Staphylococcus aureus (1). Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) isolates carrying mecC have been recovered from humans, ruminants, pets, and other animals such as rats, seals, and guinea pigs (1–3). It has been suggested that mecC-carrying MRSA isolates might not be detected by using MRSA selective media (4). For mecC-carrying S. aureus isolates, cefoxitin MICs of 4–64 mg/L have been demonstrated (1–2,4), values that would normally include susceptible isolates, … Read more
