Multiple sampling and discriminatory fingerprinting reveals clonally complex and compartmentalized infections by M. bovis in cattle

Investigation published in Veterinary Microbiology


The combination of new genotyping tools and a more exhaustive sampling policy in the analysis of infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis has shown that infection by this pathogen is more complex than initially expected. Mixed infections, coexistence of clonal variants from a parental strain, and compartmentalized infections are all different modalities of this clonal complexity. Until recently, genotyping of Mycobacterium bovis in animal populations was based on spoligotyping and analysis of a single isolate per infection; therefore, clonal complexity is probably underdetected. We used multipl… Read more

Genetic characterization of porcine populations tolerant to new variants of African swine fever virus using a medium-density DNA chip

New article published in Actas Iberoamericanas de Conservación Animal


Recent studies in East Africa have revealed a complex epidemiological situation in local breeds of domestic pig that seems to show greater tolerance to the African swine fever virus (ASFV) which favors the endemic nature of the disease in these regions, allowing its dispersion. This tolerance may have higher relation with the genetic characteristics of the animal than with the viral structure itself. In this work, the genetic characterization of local African pig populations, both domestic and wild, that may be related to the ASF disease tolerance was carried out. The whole set of sampl… Read more

New agreement between UCM and Sardinian Government to provide scientific and Technical support to eradicate African Swine Fever on the island

African Swine Fever eradication in Sardinia


The project will be carried out by the research team SUAT-VISAVET led by Prof. José Manuel Sánche-Vizcaíno. The new eradication plan, expected to be the final after 30 years of presence of the disease in Sardinia, has received the green light from the European Union which has financed it with €1.08million as initial funding. The project will be coordinated by the Directorate General of the Presidency of the Region, which includes the Health, Agriculture and Environment departments, and will be supported by the international experts: Alberto Laddomada (EU Dirtectorate General of Health and Cons…

Risks in the consumption of raw milk

New outreach post in Weblog Madri+d de Seguridad Alimentaria y Alimentación


La leche cruda puede contener bacterias causantes de enfermedades graves. La implementación de buenas prácticas de higiene en las granjas actuales es esencial para reducir la contaminación de la leche cruda, mientras que el mantenimiento de la cadena de frío también es importante para prevenir o retardar el crecimiento de bacterias en la leche cruda. Sin embargo, estas prácticas no eliminan estos riesgos por si solas. Hervir la leche cruda antes de su consumo es la mejor manera de matar a muchas de las bacterias que pueden hacernos enfermar. Expertos del Panel de la EFSA sobre Riesgos Biológic… Read more

Histopathological findings in cetaceans stranded on the spanish mediterranean coast between 2011 and 2014

Journal of Comparative Pathology publish this investigation article


Introduction: A histopathological study was carried out on 11 cetaceans stranded on the southeastern Spanish Mediterranean coast between 2011 and 2014. The purpose of this study was to contribute to the surveillance of the health status of the free-ranging cetacean population. Materials and Methods: Formalin-fixed tissue samples were submitted for examination to the Pathology Service of the Complutense University Veterinary Hospital from eight striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba), two Risso’s dolphins (Grampus griseus) and one Cuvier’s beaked whale (Ziphius cavirostris). Results: Mortal… Read more

An Update on the Epidemiology and Pathology of African Swine Fever

Investigation article published in Journal of Comparative Pathology


African swine fever (ASF) is one of the most important infectious diseases of swine and has major negative consequences for affected countries. ASF is present in many sub-Saharan countries, Sardinia and several countries of eastern and central Europe, where its continuous spread has the swine industry on heightened alert. ASF is a complex disease for which no vaccine or treatment is available, so its control is based on early detection and rapid control of spread. For a robust and reliable early detection programme it is essential to be able to recognize the clinical signs and pathological cha… Read more

Polymorphism of genes encoding PmrAB in colistin-resistant strains of Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica isolated from poultry and swine

The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy publish this investigation article


Objectives: To detect the occurrence of low susceptibility to colistin (polymyxin E), a last-resort antimicrobial, among enterobacteria isolated from samples of animal origin (poultry and swine) and to find out the molecular basis of colistin resistance. Methods: Salmonella enterica and Escherichia coli were isolated from eggs and swine samples. Bacterial strains were screened for colistin resistance by using MIC determinations interpreted according to EUCAST recommendations. pmrAB genes were amplified by PCR from bacterial isolates and their sequences were characterized. Results: Nine colis… Read more
