Spatial and Functional Organization of Pig Trade in Different European Production Systems: Implications for Disease Prevention and Control

Investigation article published in Frontiers in veterinary science


Understanding the complexity of live pig trade organization is a key factor to predict and control major infectious diseases, such as classical swine fever (CSF) or African swine fever (ASF). Whereas the organization of pig trade has been described in several European countries with indoor commercial production systems, little information is available on this organization in other systems, such as outdoor or small-scale systems. The objective of this study was to describe and compare the spatial and functional organization of live pig trade in different European countries and different product… Read more

Staphylococcus aureus Genetic Lineages Found in Urban Effluents and River Water

Investigation published in International Journal of Water and Wastewater Treatment


Methicillin resistant and susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA and MSSA respectively) remain a public health concern as human pathogens. Presence of MRSA and MSSA in river water and urban effluents was studied to analyze the S. aureus population and determine the genetic diversity and predominant genotypes obtained by spa types and MLST on each ecological niche. MRSA proportion in urban effluents was higher than in river water (P<0.05). According to the Simpson’s Index of Diversity based on spa types, MSSA isolates were more diverse than MRSA isolates (P<0.05). Predominant spa types and STs… Read more

Veterinary Microbiology

Detailed chronological analysis of microevolution events in herds infected persistently by Mycobacterium bovis

Investigation published in Veterinary Microbiology


Various studies have analyzed microevolution events leading to the emergence of clonal variants in human infections by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. However, microevolution events in animal tuberculosis remain unknown. We performed a systematic analysis of microevolution events in eight herds that were chronically infected by Mycobacterium bovis for more than 12 months. We analyzed 88 animals using a systematic screening procedure based on discriminatory MIRU-VNTR genotyping at sequential time points during the infection. Microevolution was detected in half of the herds studied. Emergence of clo… Read more

A livestock-associated, multidrug-resistant, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus Clonal Complex 97 lineage spreading in dairy cattle and pigs in Italy

Applied and Environmental Microbiology publish this investigation article


Pandemic methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) Clonal Complex (CC)97 MRSA lineages originated from livestock-to-human host jumps. In recent years CC97 has become one of the major MRSA lineages detected in Italian farmed animals. The aim of the study was to characterize and analyze differences of MRSA and methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) mainly of swine and bovine origin. Forty-seven CC97 isolates, 35 MRSA and 6 MSSA from different Italian pig and cattle holdings, 5 pig MRSA from Germany, one human MSSA from Spain, were characterized by macro-restriction-PFGE analysis, MLST, spa-typing… Read more

Detection of carbapenemase-production in a collection of Enterobacteriaceae with characterized resistance mechanisms from clinical and environmental origin using both Carba NP and Blue-Carba tests

Investigation article published in Journal of Clinical Microbiology


Rapid screening methods to confirm the presence of resistance mechanisms in multidrug-resistant bacteria are currently recommended. Carba NP and Blue-Carba tests were evaluated in carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae from hospital (n=102) and environmental (n=57) origin for detecting the different molecular classes among them. Both methods showed to be fast and cost-effective, with high sensitivity (98-100%) and specificity (100%) what may be easily introduced in the routine laboratory.… Read more

Wildlife and livestock use of extensive farm resources in South Central Spain: implications for disease transmission

Investigation article published in European Journal of Wildlife Research


The interactions of extensively farmed livestock with wild ungulates contribute to the transmission and maintenance of, among other diseases, tuberculosis (TB) at the interface in South Central Spain (SCS), where farming typically occurs close to wildlife habitats. The aim of this paper is to describe (i) the use of extensive farm resources by wildlife and livestock and (ii) the factors involved. Camera traps (CTs) were placed at a priori risk points (n = 149 points, 2145 CT days) for interspecies interactions: water points, buildings, food points, and acorn fields (which also prov… Read more
