Genetic diversity assessment of Tunisian Mycobacterium bovis population isolated from cattle

BMC Veterinary Research publish this investigation article

Background The genetic diversity of M. bovis in Tunisia is still underestimated despite the implementation of an eradication program. The lack of data about spatial distribution of the M. bovis population hinders the control of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) progress. This study represents the largest molecular analysis of M. bovis isolates in Tunisia. It is aimed to upgrade the understanding of bTB epidemiology and the geographical distribution of the infection. Tuberculosis research was performed in cattle (n = 149) with TB-compatible lesions collected over 5 months from a slaughterh… Read more

Preventing and reducing the transmission of antimicrobial resistance

The "HECTOR" project brings together research groups from Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom 

Antibiotics have revolutionized human and veterinary medicine and saved countless lives. Their discovery represented a quantum leap in the treatment of infectious diseases. However, unfortunately, the global emergence and steady increase of bacteria resistant to multiple antimicrobials have jeopardized their efficacy, to the extent that resistant strains have become a major public health threat. Moreover, there is rising concern that some bacterial infections may become untreatable in the future. Multiple factors have contributed to the present situation. One such factor, exemplified by the recent emergence and global spread of colistin resistance or of extended spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL), is the presence of resistance determinants on mobile genetic elements, such as plasmids and transposons, which are rapidly transmitted between the same and different bacterial species.… Read more

Characterization of Streptococcus pyogenes from Animal Clinical Specimens, Spain

Investigation published in Emerging Infectious Diseases

Streptococcus pyogenes appears to be almost exclusively restricted to humans, with few reports on isolation from animals. We provide a detailed characterization (emm typing, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis [PFGE], and multilocus sequence typing [MLST]) of 15 S. pyogenes isolates from animals associated with different clinical backgrounds. We also investigated erythromycin resistance mechanisms and phenotypes and virulence genes. We observed 2 emm types: emm12 (11 isolates) and emm77 (4 isolates). Similarly, we observed 2 genetic linages, sequence type (ST) 26 and ST63. Most isolates exhibited… Read more

Multi-Laboratory Evaluation of a Novel Lateral Flow Immunochromatographic Assay for Confirming Isolation of Mycobacterium bovis from Veterinary Diagnostic Specimens

Journal of Clinical Microbiology publish this investigation article

A novel lateral flow immunochromatographic device (LFD) was evaluated in several veterinary diagnostic laboratories. It was confirmed to be specific for Mycobacterium bovis and M. caprae cells. The performance of the novel LFD was assessed relative to the confirmatory tests routinely applied after culture (spoligotyping or qPCR) in each laboratory; liquid (MGIT or BacT/Alert) and/or solid (Stonebrink, Coletsos or Lowenstein-Jensen) cultures were tested. In comparison to spoligotyping of acid-fast positive MGIT cultures, percentage agreement between positive LFD and spoligotyping results was ex… Read more

Differentiation of Flavobacterium psychrophilum from Flavobacterium psychrophilum-like species by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry

Investigation published in Research in Veterinary Science

Rainbow trout fry syndrome (RTFS) is an important infectious disease caused by Flavobacterium psychrophilum affecting farmed salmonids worldwide. Other Flavobacterium psychrophilum-like species (F. plurextorum, F. oncorhynchi, F. tructae, F. collinsii and F. piscis) have been isolated from diseased rainbow trout fry suspected of RTFS although the epidemiological and clinical relevance of these pathogens are unknown. The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential use of MALDI-TOF (Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization-Time of Flight) Mass Spectrometry as method for specific ide… Read more

Equine viral arteritis in breeding and sport horses in central Spain

Research in Veterinary Science publish this investigation article

Equine viral arteritis (EVA) may have a high economic impact on breeding stud farms due to the occurrence of EVA-associated abortion outbreaks and the ability of the virus to persist in carrier stallions. While the consequences of EVA in premises with sport horses are usually less severe, the first confirmed outbreak of EVA in Spain occurred in a riding club in Barcelona, but no data on the seroprevalence of EVA in sport horses have been reported in Spain. Given the importance of both Spanish Purebred (SP) breeding horses and sport horses for Spain`s equine industry, the aim of this study was … Read more
