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

Poster presented in 6th Pan Commonwealth Veterinary Conference of the CVA and the 27th Congress of the Veterinary Association of Malaysia


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

Evolución histórica y situación actual de la lengua azul en España

New article published in Albéitar


El virus responsable de la lengua azul (LA) pertenece al género Orbivirus. Se han descrito hasta la fecha 26 serotipos distintos entre los que no existe inmunidad cruzada, lo que complica la lucha frente a la enfermedad y hace que sea necesario vacunar contra cada serotipo específico frente al que se quiera proteger a los animales. La transmisión del virus de la LA no se produce por contacto directo entre animales susceptibles, ya que es necesaria la presencia de un vector, en concreto insectos hematófagos del género Culicoides, para que se produzca la transmisión de la enfermedad. La enferme… Read more

Novel adenovirus detected in captive bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) suffering from self-limiting gastroenteritis

BMC Veterinary Research publish this investigation article


Adenoviruses are common pathogens in vertebrates, including humans. In marine mammals, adenovirus has been associated with fatal hepatitis in sea lions. However, only in rare cases have adenoviruses been detected in cetaceans, where no clear correlation was found between presence of the virus and disease status. A novel adenovirus was identified in four captive bottlenose dolphins with self-limiting gastroenteritis. Viral detection and identification were achieved by: PCR-amplification from fecal samples; sequencing of partial adenovirus polymerase (pol) and hexon genes; producing the virus i… Read more

Estudio taxonómico de bacterias relacionadas con el Síndrome del Alevín de la trucha

PhD Thesis defense by Leydis Zamora Morales at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


Los miembros de la familia Flavobacteriaceae, géneros Flavobacterium y Chryseobacterium entre otros, son microorganismos ubicuos que habitan una amplia variedad de hábitats terrestres y acuáticos. La mayoría de los miembros de ambos géneros son saprófitos, aunque algunas especies tienen significación clínica en el ámbito veterinario, fundamentalmente como patógenos de peces. El aumento en el número de especies de los géneros Flavobacterium y Chryseobacterium asociadas con ciertos procesos clínicos en peces hace que los miembros de ambos géneros se consideren patógenos potenciales de peces co… Read more

Method comparison for enhanced recovery, isolation and qualitative detection of C. jejuni and C. coli from wastewater effluent samples

International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health publish this investigation article


Seeking a sensitive protocol, culture-dependent methods were compared to detect thermophilic Campylobacter species in untreated urban effluents. We evaluated various combinations of selective media, with and without an enrichment steps, as well as an extra filtration step. Culture-independent real-time quantitative PCR was also included and all detected isolates underwent antimicrobial susceptibility testing. All tested water samples contained Campylobacter DNA, but only 64% were positive after culture. Although enrichment using Preston broth resulted in better recovery of potentially stressed… Read more

Impact of the use of β-lactam antimicrobials on the emergence of Escherichia coli isolates resistant to cephalosporins under standard pig-rearing conditions

Investigation article published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology


The aim of this study was to evaluate if the treatments with ceftiofur and amoxicillin are risk factors for the emergence of cephalosporin resistant (CR) E. coli in a pig farm during the rearing period. One hundred 7-day-old piglets were divided into two groups, a control (n = 50) group and a group parenterally treated with ceftiofur (n = 50). During the fattening period, both groups were subdivided in two. A second treatment with amoxicillin was administered in feed to two of the four groups, as follows: group 1 (untreated, n = 20), group 2 (treated with amoxicillin, n = 26), group 3 (treated… Read more

Tuberculosis bovina: aspectos generales y problemática

New article published in Ganadería


La tuberculosis es en la actualidad una de las enfermedades más relevantes, su control compete tanto a la Sanidad Animal como a la Salud Pública, ya que es una zoonosis (puede transmitirse de los animales al hombre y viceversa). Es una enfermedad de declaración obligatoria en ganado bovino y se encuentra sujeta a campañas oficiales de erradicación. La raza bovina de lidia es la raza que más problemas desarrolla a la hora de la erradicación de la enfermedad y actualmente presenta una prevalencia hasta 20 veces mayor que las razas bovinas lecheras. La tuberculosis se extiende más lentamente en … Read more
