In-Depth Characterization and Functional Analysis of Clonal Variants in a Mycobacterium tuberculosis Strain Prone to Microevolution

Frontiers in Microbiology publish this investigation article

The role of clonal complexity has gradually been accepted in infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), although analyses of this issue are limited. We performed an in-depth study of a case of recurrent MTB infection by integrating genotyping, whole genome sequencing, analysis of gene expression and infectivity in in vitro and in vivo models. Four different clonal variants were identified from independent intrapatient evolutionary branches. One of the single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the variants mapped in mce3R, which encodes a repressor of an operon involved in virulence, and affected … Read more

Equipo de la UCM halla bacteria resistente al antibiótico de último recurso

Interview in Universidades Investigación of Agencia EFE

Un equipo de investigadores de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) ha hallado en perros el primer caso de una bacteria hospitalaria resistente a la tigeciclina, un antibiótico de último recurso, lo que supone "una seria amenaza para la salud pública". El estudio revela que la bacteria portadora del mecanismo de resistencia, la Klebsiella pneumoniae, asociada a las infecciones hospitalarias, "probablemente ha sido y está siendo introducida repetidamente en los hospitales", según el profesor de Microbiología Bruno González, de la Facultad de Veterinaria de la UCM.… Read more

Equine piroplasmosis

New article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal

Babesia caballi (B. caballi) and Theileria equi (T.equi) are obligate intraerythrocytic protozoan parasites that cause equine piroplamosis. Previously, T. equi was known as Babesia equi. These parasites are transmitted by ticks of the genera Dermacentor, Hyalomma and Rhipicephalus. Ticks become infected by ingesting these protozoan which are in the blood of infected horses. Horses that survive can become inapparent carriers for a long time and they are a source of infection for the ticks which will parasite more horses. Besides, mainly in the case of T. equi, placental transmission is possible… Read more

Spread of mcr-1-carrying Enterobacteriaceae in sewage water from Spain

Investigation article published in The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy

OBJECTIVES: The mobile colistin resistance gene mcr-1 has been identified worldwide in human and animal sources, while its occurrence in the environment is still largely unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of mcr-1-harbouring Enterobacteriaceae in water samples obtained from rivers and waste water treatment plants in the area of Barcelona, Spain. METHODS: The presence of mcr-1 was detected by PCR. Bacterial identification was performed via MALDI-TOF MS. Resistance to colistin was determined by a broth dilution method. The epidemiological relationship between the p… Read more

Early Detection of Infection in Pigs through an Online Monitoring System

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article

Late detection of emergency diseases causes significant economic losses for pig producers and governments. As the first signs of animal infection are usually fever and reduced motion that lead to reduced consumption of water and feed, we developed a novel smart system to monitor body temperature and motion in real time, facilitating the early detection of infectious diseases. In this study, carried out within the framework of the European Union research project Rapidia Field, we tested the smart system on 10 pigs experimentally infected with two doses of an attenuated strain of African swine f… Read more
