Freedom from equine infectious anaemia virus infection in Spanish Purebred horses

Investigation article published in Veterinary Record Open


Introduction: No cases of equine infectious anaemia (EIA) have been reported in Spain since 1983. Factors that could increase the risk of reintroducing equine infectious anaemia virus (EIAV) into Spain include the recent occurrence of the disease in Europe and the absence of compulsory serological testing before importation into Spain. Aims and objectives: Given the importance of the Spanish Purebred (SP) horse breeding industry in Spain, the aim of this cross-sectional study was to provide evidence of freedom from EIAV in SP stud farms in Central Spain. Materials and methods: Serum samples … Read more

Método VISAVET, diferenciación histológica de preparados y productos cárnicos

Revista de la Asociación Nacional de Industrias de la Carne de España publish this article


Con la introducción de una nueva técnica basada en la imagen histológica para discriminar entre preparados y productos cárnicos, surgió un problema técnico derivado de las categorizaciones de la carne como productos transformados y sin transformar. En este contexto, la Asociación Nacional de Industrias de la Carne de España (ANICE) solicitó al centro Visavet de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid el desarrollo de un método analítico basado en el análisis histológico de las muestras, que permitiera diferenciar de forma objetiva y fiable preparados de carne y productos cárnicos, el cual se expo… Read more

Complete Genome Sequences of Field Isolates of Mycobacterium bovis and Mycobacterium caprae

Genome announcements publish this investigation article


Here we report the complete genome sequences of field isolates of Mycobacterium bovis and the related mycobacterial species, Mycobacterium caprae. The genomes of three M. bovis (MB1, MB3, MB4) and one M. caprae (MB2) field isolates with different virulence, prevalence, and host distribution phenotypes were sequenced… Read more

Lack of interference with diagnostic testing for tuberculosis in goats experimentally exposed to Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Journal


It has been suggested that infection with Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis, the pathogen responsible for caseous lymphadenitis (CLA), might interfere with diagnostic testing for tuberculosis (TB), due to antigenic similarities between this particular type of bacterium and those expressed by mycobacteria. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether experimental infection with C. pseudotuberculosis in goats impacted on TB testing, using single and comparative intradermal tuberculin (SIT and SCIT respectively) tests and interferon (IFN)-γ assay. No positive reactors were detect… Read more

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

Small plasmid-mediated antibiotic resistance in Haemophilus influenzae is enhanced by increases in plasmid copy number and bacterial fitness

Investigation article published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy


Plasmids play a key role in the horizontal spread of antibiotic resistance determinants among bacterial pathogens. When an antibiotic-resistance plasmid arrives to a new bacterial host it produces a fitness cost, causing a competitive disadvantage for the plasmid-bearing bacterium in the absence of antibiotics. On the other hand, in the presence of antibiotics the plasmid promotes the survival of the clone. The adaptations experienced by plasmid and bacteria in the presence of antibiotics during the first generations of coexistence will be crucial for the progress of the infection and the main… Read more

Escherichia coli O157:H7 in wild boars (Sus scrofa) and Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica) sharing pastures with free-ranging livestock in a natural environment in Spain

Investigation article published in The Veterinary quarterly


Background: Wild ungulates have greatly increased in abundance and range throughout Europe. This new situation presents a concern for public health because many wild ungulates are known reservoirs of zoonotic pathogens. Objectives: In this work, we tested for the presence of the zoonotic pathogen Escherichia coli O157:H7 in free-ranging livestock and sympatric wild boars (Sus scrofa) and Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica) in NE Spain from 2009 to 2011. In addition, antimicrobial resistance and virulence factors were assessed. Animals and methods: In total, individual fecal samples were obtained … Read more

Epidemiology and Infection

Systematic review of surveillance systems and methods for early detection of exotic, new and re-emerging diseases in animal populations

Investigation published in Epidemiology and Infection


In this globalized world, the spread of new, exotic and re-emerging diseases has become one of the most important threats to animal production and public health. This systematic review analyses conventional and novel early detection methods applied to surveillance. In all, 125 scientific documents were considered for this study. Exotic (n = 49) and re-emerging (n = 27) diseases constituted the most frequently represented health threats. In addition, the majority of studies were related to zoonoses (n = 66). The approaches found in the review could be divided in surveillance modalities, both ac… Read more

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases

Assessing the risk of African swine fever introduction into the European Union by wild boar

Investigation published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases


The presence of African swine fever (ASF) in the Caucasus region and Russian Federation has increased concerns that wild boars may introduce the ASF virus into the European Union (EU). This study describes a semi-quantitative approach for evaluating the risk of ASF introduction into the EU by wild boar movements based on the following risk estimators: the susceptible population of (1) wild boars and (2) domestic pigs in the country of origin; the outbreak density in (3) wild boars and (4) domestic pigs in the countries of origin, the (5) suitable habitat for wild boars along the EU border; and… Read more
