Determinación de herpesvirus en tejidos de cetáceos varados en el Mediterráneo valenciano entre 2010 y 2013

Oral communication in IX Congreso de la Sociedad Española de Cetáceos


Herpesvirus tiene la capacidad de establecer infecciones latentes que pueden ser revertidas a activas por estrés o inmunosupresión. Por ello, evaluar la prevalencia de herpesvirus y determinar si hay replicación viral puede suponer una información muy valiosa en la valoración del estado sanitario de los mamíferos marinos y, por extensión, en la monitorización de la salud del ecosistema marino. En este trabajo se determinó sistemáticamente la presencia de ADN y ARN con la secuencia de la ADN polimerasa de herpesvirus en todos los tejidos muestreados de los cetáceos varados en la Comunidad Valen… Read more

Prevalence of Hepatitis E virus in wildlife in Madrid region

Lorena Girón Olmeda defended this Degree Final Project


Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the principal causative agent of acute hepatitis in humans. In endemic regions the main route of transmission in epidemics is contaminated water, whereas sporadic cases in developed countries are mainly related to animals. Nowadays hepatitis E is considered an important emerging zoonosis. In addition to domestic pig, other wild animals species as wild boars and cervids are VHE hosts. The origin of this infection in humans seems to be the contact with infected animals and the consume of raw meat of these animals, but this transmission route is not yet well known. To v… Read more

Seroprevalence of hepatitis E virus and Toxoplasma gondii in pig farms in Toledo, Spain

Silvia Bermúdez Zapata defended this presentation at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid in order to obtain the Master of Research


Toxoplasma gondii and the hepatitis E virus (VHE) are pathogens potentially zoonotic worldwide distributed that can be transmitted to humans through food consumption like pork meet. The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of T. gondii and VHE in pig production farms in Toledo province. For this purpouse, 790 samples of serum taken from sows in four farms located in Toledo province were analyzed. Antibodies detection in both microorganisms was made using an indirect ELISA. Antibodies against T. gondii were present in only 16 animals analyzed (2,0%; IC95%: 1,4 – 3,6 ), in two… Read more

Evidence of disseminated infection by Mycobacterium avium subspecies hominissuis in a pet ferret (Mustela putorius furo)

Investigation article published in Research in Veterinary Science


The infection caused by the zoonotic opportunistic pathogen Mycobacterium avium subsp. Hominissuis (Mah) was reported for the first time in a pet ferret. Both owners were HIV-positive. Euthanasia of the pet was recommended due to medical reasons and as a preventive action. Disseminated and open tuberculosis lesions were observed in the gastrointestinal and respiratory systems of the ferret. Ecographic and radiographic surveys showed a severe generalized lymphadenopathy, strong thickening of the gastric wall and peritoneum layer. The histopathological findings revealed a disseminated, granuloma… Read more

Development and evaluation of a new lateral flow assay for simultaneous detection of antibodies against African Horse Sickness and Equine Infectious Anemia viruses

Journal of Virological Methods publish this investigation article


African horse sickness (AHS) and equine infectious anemia (EIA) are both notifiable equid specific diseases that may present similar clinical signs. Considering the increased global movement of horses and equine products over the past decades, together with the socio-economic impact of previous AHS and EIA outbreaks, there is a clear demand for an early discrimination and a strict control of their transmission between enzootic and AHS/EIA-free regions. Currently, the individual control and prevention of AHS or EIA relies on a series of measures, including the restriction of animal movements, v… Read more

Detection of African Swine Fever Virus Antibodies in Serum and Oral Fluid Specimens Using a Recombinant Protein 30 (p30) Dual Matrix Indirect ELISA

Investigation published in PLoS ONE


In the absence of effective vaccine(s), control of African swine fever caused by African swine fever virus (ASFV) must be based on early, efficient, cost-effective detection and strict control and elimination strategies. For this purpose, we developed an indirect ELISA capable of detecting ASFV antibodies in either serum or oral fluid specimens. The recombinant protein used in the ELISA was selected by comparing the early serum antibody response of ASFV-infected pigs (NHV-p68 isolate) to three major recombinant polypeptides (p30, p54, p72) using a multiplex fluorescent microbead-based immunoas… Read more

Most appropriate samples to be taken when facing a suspicion of infectious disease in horses

New article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal


Whenever there is a suspicion of infectious disease in a horse, it is important to take into account several basic aspects of the sampling for the laboratory analysis in order to avoid mistakes in this stage which could lead to false drawn conclusions in the interpretation of results. In this article we summarise the most appropriate samples that should be taken when facing a horse with a suspicion of infectious disease.… Read more

Detection of Coxiella burnetii infection in a Saharawi dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas neglecta)

Investigation published in Journal of Zoo and Wildlife Medicine


Coxiella burnetii, the causative agent of Q fever, can infect a wide range of host species, but limited information exists on the occurrence and implications of infection in wild species. This study describes a natural infection in a population of dorcas gazelles (Gazella dorcas) from a zoo. A 9-yr-old male Saharawi dorcas gazelle (Gazella dorcas neglecta) tested positive on enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and fecal polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Despite treatment with oxytetracycline, the animal did not clear the infection after 6 mo, as confirmed by a PCR test on a semen sample. … Read more

Seroprevalence and factors associated with seropositivity to equine arteritis virus in Spanish Purebred horses in Spain

Investigation article published in Equine veterinary journal


Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA), a disease caused by infection with the equine arteritis virus (EAV), is present in many European countries. In Spain, the last confirmed outbreak was reported in 1992 and there is a paucity of seroprevalence studies. The disease has a major impact on the equine breeding industry, which is mainly represented by Spanish Purebred (SP) horses in Spain. To estimate the seroprevalence of EAV in the breeding SP horse population in central Spain, and to identify potential horse- and stud farm-level factors associated with seropositivity to EAV. Individual serum samp… Read more
