Highly Tigecycline-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae Sequence Type 11 (ST11) and ST147 Isolates from Companion Animals

Investigation published in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy


In this study we have characterized two tigecycline resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae clones isolated from dog urine samples. The isolates were genetically unrelated, belonging to sequence types ST11 and ST147, both classically related to human isolates. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first identification of tigecycline resistant isolates from animals. We unveil the worrisome circulation among animals of bacterial clones resistant to this last resort antibiotic… Read more

Jeotgalibaca porci sp. nov. and Jeotgalibaca arthritidis sp. nov., two new species isolated from pigs and emended description of the genus Jeotgalibaca

Investigation published in International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology


Biochemical and molecular genetic studies were performed on two novel Gram-positive catalase-negative coccus-shaped organisms isolated from liquid joint samples of two pigs. The microorganisms were not identified as a recognized species based on their cellular, morphological and biochemical tests. 16S rRNA gene sequence comparison studies allowed their identifications as members of the genus Jeotgalibaca, but the organisms were different to Jeotgalibaca dankookensis, the single species of the genus. The two microorganisms shared 96.3% and 96.9% 16S rRNA gene sequence similarity values with the… Read more

New tools improve tuberculosis diagnosis in high prevalence settings

Results obtained suggest that serology can be included as ancillary tool for diagnosis of bovine tuberculosis.


A Spanish TB-research consortium including VISAVET, SaBio-IREC, ISCIII, SERIDA and NEIKER recently evaluated the sensitivity of the single cervical intradermal tuberculin test, two interferon-gamma assays and three different antibody detection techniques for bovine tuberculosis diagnosis in a cattle herd with high M. bovis infection prevalence. The results were just published in Research in Veterinary Science. The antibody detection techniques yielded a significant higher sensitivity than that achieved with the official diagnostic techniques. In addition, the interpretation in parallel of cellular and antibody detection techniques reached the highest sensitivity: 98%. Thus, the combined use of diagnostic techniques detecting both cellular and humoral responses could become an alternative in the control of bovine TB outbreaks in high prevalence settings.… Read more

Infection Genetics and Evolution

Phylogenomic analysis of the complete sequence of a gastroenteritis-associated cetacean adenovirus (bottlenose dolphin adenovirus 1) reveals a high degree of genetic divergence

Investigation published in Infection Genetics and Evolution


Adenoviruses are common pathogens in vertebrates, infecting a wide range of hosts, but only having rarely been detected and correlated with disease in cetaceans. This article describes the first complete genomic sequence of a cetacean adenovirus, bottlenose dolphin adenovirus 1 (BdAdV-1), detected in captive bottlenose dolphin population (Tursiops truncatus) suffering from self-limiting gastroenteritis. The complete genome sequence of BdAdV-1 was recovered from data generated by high-throughput sequencing and validated by Sanger sequencing. The genome is 34,080bp long and has 220 nucleotides l… Read more

Clinical and Vaccine Immunology

Tuberculin skin testing boosts interferon-gamma responses to DIVA reagents in Mycobacterium bovis-infected cattle

Clinical and Vaccine Immunology publish this investigation article


BCG vaccination sensitises cattle to bovine tuberculin which compromises the use of the current bovine TB surveillance tests. Although the performance of a blood test (that utilises antigens expressed by Mycobacterium bovis but not by BCG) capable of discriminating infected from vaccinated animals (DIVA interferon-gamma test, DIT) has been evaluated in naturally infected TB field reactors, there is a need to perform similar analysis in a BCG vaccinated/M. bovis infected population. Furthermore, we explored different scenarios under which a DIT may be implemented alongside BCG vaccination: (i) … Read more

Characterization of Pasteurella multocida associated with ovine pneumonia using multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) and virulence-associated gene profile analysis and comparison with porcine isolates

Investigation article published in Veterinary Microbiology


Pasteurella multocida is a pathogen causing disease in a wide range of hosts including sheep and pigs. Isolates from ovine pneumonia were characterized by MLST (Multi-host and RIRDC databases) and virulence-associated gene (VAG) typing and compared with porcine isolates. Ovine and porcine isolates did not share any STs as determined by both schemes and exhibited different VAG profiles. With the Multi-host database, sixteen STs were identified among 43 sheep isolates with two STs (ST50 and ST19) comprising 53.5% of the isolates, and seven MLST genotypes (ST3, ST11 and ST62 included 75% of the i… Read more

Evaluation of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis SO2 vaccine using a natural tuberculosis infection model in goats

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Journal


The development of new vaccines against animal tuberculosis (TB) is a priority for improving the control and eradication of this disease, particularly in those species not subjected to compulsory eradication programmes. In this study, the protection conferred by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis SO2 experimental vaccine was evaluated using a natural infection model in goats. Twenty-six goats were distributed in three groups: (1) 10 goats served as a control group; (2) six goats were subcutaneously vaccinated with BCG; and (3) 10 goats were subcutaneously vaccinated with SO2. Four months after vac… Read more

Prevalence of Escherichia coli virulence genes in patients with diarrhea and a subpopulation of healthy volunteers in Madrid Spain

Prevalence of Escherichia coli virulence genes in patients with diarrhea and a subpopulation of healthy volunteers in Madrid, Spain

The book Applications of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) tools in microbiology of infectious diseases edited by Frontiers includes this chapter


Etiological diagnosis of diarrheal diseases may be complicated by their multi-factorial nature. In addition, Escherichia coli strains present in the gut can occasionally harbor VGs without causing disease, which complicates the assessment of their clinical significance in particular. The aim of this study was to detect and quantify nine VGs (stx1, stx2, eae, aggR, ehxA, invA, est and elt) typically present in five E. coli enteric pathotypes (EHEC, ETEC, EPEC, EAEC and EIEC) in fecal samples collected from 49 patients with acute diarrhea and 32 healthy controls from Madrid, Spain. In addition,… Read more

Assessment of MALDI-TOF MS as alternative tool for Streptococcus suis identification

Assessment of MALDI-TOF MS as alternative tool for Streptococcus suis identification

Chapter included in Applications of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) tools in microbiology of infectious diseases edited by Frontiers


The accuracy of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) for identifying Streptococcus suis isolates obtained from pigs, wild animals, and humans was evaluated using a PCR-based identification assay as the gold standard. In addition, MALDI-TOF MS was compared with the commercial multi-tests Rapid ID 32 STREP system. From the 129 S. suis isolates included in the study and identified by the molecular method, only 31 isolates (24.03%) had score values ≥2.300 and 79 isolates (61.24%) gave score values between 2.299 and 2.000. After updating … Read more

Vigilancia Epidemiológica de la Leishmaniosis mediante la Técnica de Inmunofluorescencia Indirecta (IFI)

Vigilancia Epidemiológica de la Leishmaniosis mediante la Técnica de Inmunofluorescencia Indirecta (IFI)

The book Brote de Leishmaniasis en Fuenlabrada y Otros Municipios de la Comunidad de Madrid. El papel de las liebres y los conejos como reservorios edited by Comunidad de Madrid includes this chapter


La epidemiología de la leishmaniasis es muy compleja. En la leishmaniasis producida por L.infantum son muchos los animales, tanto salvajes como domésticos, que contribuyen junto al perro, considerado el principal reservorio, al mantenimiento del parásito. Prueba de ello es que durante el último brote que ha tenido lugar en la Comunidad de Madrid (2009-2015) se han descrito por vez primera como reservorios del parásito a los lagomorfos (liebres y conejos). Es pues de gran importancia un buen programa de vigilancia epidemiológica para atajar este problema de salud pública. Ello pasaría por detec… Read more
