Comparative analysis of cellular immune responses and cytokine levels in sheep experimentally infected with bluetongue virus serotype 1 and 8

Investigation published in Veterinary Microbiology


Protective immunity in sheep with bluetongue virus (BTV) infection as well as the role of BTV-induced cytokines during immune response remains unclear. Understanding the basis immunological mechanisms in sheep experimentally infected with serotypes 1 and 8 (BTV-1 and -8) was the aim of this study. A time-course study was carried out in order to evaluate cell-mediated immune response and serum concentrations of cytokines (IL-1β, TNFα, IL-12, IFNγ, IL-4 and IL-10) with inflammatory and immunological functions. Depletion of T cell subsets (mainly CD4+, γδ and CD25+) toget… Read more

VISAVET Centre announces the opening of the new Equine Health Surveillance Unit SEVISEQ

The new  Equine Health Surveillance Unit that seeks to respond to the need of a specialized laboratory in the diagnosis, prevention and control of infectious equine diseases in Spain


El Centro de Vigilancia Sanitaria Veterinaria VISAVET de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid pone en funcionamiento un nuevo servicio de Vigilancia Sanitaria Equina que pretende dar respuesta a la necesidad de un laboratorio especializado en el diagnóstico, la prevención y el control de enfermedades infecciosas de los équidos a nivel nacional. SEVISEQ estará dirigido por la Dra. Fátima Cruz López, que cuenta con una amplia trayectoria en el área del diagnóstico de las enfermedades infecciosas de los équidos. En España la importancia de estas enfermedades ha ido en aumento. Estudios realizados entre los años 2011 y 2014 en yeguadas de Pura Raza Española de la zona central revelaron un 17% de los reproductores (yeguas y sementales) seropositivos a Arteritis Vírica Equina y un 54% a Rinoneumonitis. En 2013, un estudio determinó que el 53% de los caballos residentes en Andalucía eran seropositivos a Piroplasmosis. Todos estos datos reflejan la necesidad de que el veterinario disponga de información sobre la presencia de enfermedades infecciosas en la explotación, de manera que se puedan implementar medidas para prevenirlas y evitar la enfermedad clínica, las alteraciones reproductivas, así como problemas derivados de la exportación de caballos seropositivos y la disminución o pérdida en su valor económico. SEVISEQ pasa así a formar parte de la cartera de servicios de VISAVET, centro de excelencia en el campo de la investigación y que cuenta con varios laboratorios oficiales de referencia a nivel nacional e internacional.

Novel blaROB-1-Bearing Plasmid Conferring Resistance to B-Lactams in Haemophilus parasuis Isolates from Healthy Weaning Pigs

Investigation article published in Applied and Environmental Microbiology


Haemophilus parasuis, the causative agent of Glässer`s disease, is one of the early colonizers of the nasal mucosa of piglets. It is prevalent in swine herds, and lesions associated with disease are fibrinous polyserositis and bronchopneumonia. Antibiotics are commonly used in disease control, and resistance to several antibiotics has been described in H. parasuis. Prediction of H. parasuis virulence is currently limited by our scarce understanding of its pathogenicity. Some genes have been associated with H. parasuis virulence, such as lsgB and group 1 vtaA, while biofilm growth has been asso… Read more

Antibiotic-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli high-risk clones and an IncFII(k) mosaic plasmid hosting Tn1 (blaTEM-4) in isolates from 1990 to 2004

Investigation published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy


We describe the genetic background of blaTEM-4 and the complete sequence of pRYC11::blaTEM-4, a mosaic plasmid highly similar to pKpQIL-like variants, predominant among TEM-4 producers in a Spanish hospital (1990-2004) which belong to Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli high-risk clones responsible for the current spread of different antibiotic resistance genes. Predominant populations of plasmids and host adapted clonal lineages seem to have greatly contributed to the spread of resistance to extended-spectrum cephalosporins… Read more

Polymyxin resistance caused by mgrB inactivation is not associated with significant biological cost in Klebsiella pneumoniae

Investigation article published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy


Inactivation of the mgrB gene, encoding a negative feed-back regulator of the PhoPQ signaling system, was recently shown to be a common mutational mechanism responsible for acquired polymyxin resistance among carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae from clinical sources. In this work we show that mgrB mutants can easily be selected in vitro from different K. pneumoniae lineages, and that mgrB inactivation is not associated with a significant biological cost… Read more
