Insights into a novel blaKPC-2 -encoding IncP-6 plasmid reveal carbapenem-resistance circulation in several Enterobacteriaceae species from wastewater and a hospital source in Spain

Frontiers in Microbiology publish this investigation article

Untreated wastewater, particularly from hospitals and other healthcare facilities, is considered to be a reservoir for multidrug-resistant bacteria. However, its role in the spread of antibiotic resistances in the human population remains poorly investigated. We used whole genome sequencing (WGS) to analyze 25 KPC-2-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates from sewage water collected during a 3-year period and three clinical Citrobacter freundii isolates from a tertiary hospital in the same collection area in Spain. We detected a common, recently described, IncP-6 plasmid carrying the gene blaKPC… Read more

Epidemiology of Q fever in domestic ruminants in the central zone of the Iberian peninsula

PhD Thesis defense by María Teresa García-Seco Romero at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid

Coxiella burnetii is the aetiological agent of Q fever, a worldwide distributed zoonosis whose main reservoirs and source of infection for humans are domestic ruminants. The main clinical sign associated with C. burnetii infection is late-term abortion in small ruminants, and fertility problems in cattle. However, the impact of Q fever in animal production has been traditionally considered limited since infection is more commonly unapparent. Still, its ability to cause important clinical outbreaks has become evident in the last years, so that nowadays it is considered one of the main causes of… Read more

New advances in the diagnosis of diseases in marine mammals

Mar Melero Asensio defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid

Marine mammals have long been considered good indicators of marine ecosystem health because they have long lifespans; blubber stores that can serve as depots for chemicals and toxins and some species occupy a high trophic level. In addition to this, many species reside along coasts; human activities like fishing and maritime traffic affect them, and they are vulnerable to many infectious diseases. Some of these have implications for human public health and others may serve as indicators of environmental distress syndrome. Furthermore, marine mammals are very charismatic animals, and thus provi… Read more

Hepatitis E: zoonotic emerging disease in industrialized countries

VISAVET Outreach Journal published this online article

Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is the main cause of viral acute hepatitis in humans worldwide. In endemic areas the virus is mainly transmitted through contaminated water, while in industrialized countries sporadic cases are basically related to animals and hepatitis E is currently considered an emerging zoonotic disease. Besides swine, there are other wild animals such as wild boars and deers which can be reservoirs of this disease. The origin of infection in humans is linked to direct contact with infected animals or to consumption of raw or undercooked meat and liver… Read more

Antibody detection tests improve the sensitivity of tuberculosis diagnosis in cattle

Investigation published in Research in Veterinary Science

We evaluated the sensitivity (Se) of the single cervical intradermal tuberculin (SIT) test, two interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) assays and three different antibody detection techniques for bovine tuberculosis (bTB) diagnosis in 131 mixed beef breed cattle. The results of the diagnostic techniques performed over the whole herd, and over the animals confirmed as infected based on the presence of lesions compatible with the disease and/or M. bovis isolation were compared to determine apparent prevalence (AP) and Se. The Se of the SIT test (severe interpretation) was 63.7% (95% CI, 54.54–72.00), wh… Read more

First Report of Molecular Characterization of Argentine Isolates of Streptococcus equi subsp. equi by Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis

Journal of Equine Veterinary Science publish this investigation article

Strangles is one of the most frequently diagnosed equine respiratory infectious diseases in the world. It is caused by Streptococcus equi subsp. equi (S. equi), and it is an acute infection characterized by pyrexia, nasal discharge, pharyngitis, and abscessation of lymph nodes. Frequently, healthy horses might continue to harbor S. equi after clinical recovery. Although the genetic distance between S. equi isolates is short, strains can be differentiated by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and single locus sequence typing for epidemiological studies. The aim of this study was to charact… Read more

Human influence and biotic homogenization drive the distribution of Escherichia coli virulence genes in natural habitats

Investigation published in MicrobiologyOpen

Cattle are the main reservoirs for Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC), the only known zoonotic intestinal E. coli pathotype. However, there are other intestinal pathotypes that can cause disease in humans, whose presence has been seldom investigated. Thus, our aim was to identify the effects of anthropic pressure and of wild and domestic ungulate abundance on the distribution and diversity of the main human E. coli pathotypes and nine of their representative virulence genes (VGs). We used a quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) for the direct detection and quantification of the genus-sp… Read more
