Current concepts and contents of Veterinary Public Health and Veterinary Health Polic

Revista española de Salud Pública publish this investigation article


Human and veterinary medicine obviously share most concepts and contents. However, both academic and scientific issues and the daily practice of many health disciplines can differ largely between human and veterinary medicine. Such differences can easily go unnoticed among other healthcare collectives or the general public. The aim of the present work was to provide an update, as well as some definitions of what we understand under the terms Veterinary Public Health and Veterinary Health Policy… Read more

Ant(6)-I genes encoding aminoglycoside O-nucleotidyltransferases are widely spread among streptomycin resistant strains of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli

Frontiers in Microbiology publish this investigation article


Thermotolerant Campylobacter species C. jeuni and C. coli are actually recognized as the major bacterial agent responsible for food-transmitted gastroenteritis. The most effective antimicrobials against Campylobacter are macrolides and some, but not all aminoglycosides. Among these, susceptibility to streptomycin is reduced by mutations in the ribosomal RPSL protein or by expression of ANT(6)-I aminoglycoside O-nucleotidyltransferases. The presence of streptomycin resistance genes was evaluated among streptomycin-resistant Campylobacter isolated from humans and animals by using PCR with degene… Read more

Caracterización y detección genética de Enterobacterias resistentes a colistina en muestras de origen animal

Marta Valero Lorenzo defended this Degree Final Project


Justification. Colistin resistance poses a major Public Health concern. The first description of a plasmid mediated gene codifying for colistin resistance took place in 2015, since this year eight genes have been described. Those genes codify for colistin resistance by modifications in Lipid A, target of this antimicrobial in the bacterial cell wall. As a plasmid mediated genes, could imply horizontal transmission of resistance. Besides, colistin classification as “critically important antibiotic for human medicine” by the WHO, and the growth of colistin resistance, stablish the need to develo… Read more

Prevalencia de la Hepatitis E en cerdo blanco en España

Degree Final Project defended by Sara Carral Irijoa


El virus de la hepatitis E (HEV) es responsable de casos, endémicos y epidémicos, de hepatitis aguda en humanos en todo el mundo. En países en desarrollo la transmisión es fundamentalmente a partir del consumo de agua contaminada. En países desarrollados la hepatitis E se considera una enfermedad zoonótica emergente, siendo el consumo de alimentos contaminados, principalmente del cerdo, la principal fuente de infección. Es un virus ARN, clasificado en la familia Hepeviridae, que incluye 7 genotipos, 4 principales (1-4), y un octavo genotipo que está propuesto. Los genotipos 1 y 2 sólo afectan … Read more

Pathologic findings and causes of death of stranded cetaceans in the Canary Islands (2006-2012)

PLoS ONE publish this investigation article


This study describes the pathologic findings and most probable causes of death (CD) of 224 cetaceans stranded along the coastline of the Canary Islands (Spain) over a 7-year period, 2006-2012. Most probable CD, grouped as pathologic categories (PCs), was identified in 208/224 (92.8%) examined animals. Within natural PCs, those associated with good nutritional status represented 70/208 (33.6%), whereas, those associated with significant loss of nutritional status represented 49/208 (23.5%). Fatal intra- and interspecific traumatic interactions were 37/208 (17.8%). Vessel collisions included 24/… Read more

VISAVET Outreach Journal

Theileria equi and Babesia caballi in vitro culture

New article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal


Equine piroplasmosis (EP) is an infectious disease of equids caused by the intraerythrocytic protozoan parasites Babesia caballi (B. caballi) and Theileria equi (T. equi). The importance of this disease is the fact that, after the infection, horses can remain as chronic carriers of the parasites for a long time, being seropositive but showing clinical signs only in cases of immunosuppression or intense exercise. EP involves serious economic losses for the equine industry due to the restrictions in the export of horses to countries free from EP… Read more

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases

Analysis of the cattle movement network and its association with the risk of bovine tuberculosis at the farm level in Castilla y Leon, Spain

Investigation article published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases


Between-farm transmission of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) occurs mostly through fence-to-fence contact between neighboring farms, endemic infected wildlife or movement of infected animals. Unfortunately, bTB detection is frequently delayed and identification of the source of introduction is often difficult, particularly in endemic regions. Here, we characterized the cattle movement network of Castilla y Leon, a high bTB-prevalence (1.9% at the farm-level in 2015) region in Spain, over six years and analyzed the distribution of bTB to ultimately assess the likelihood of spatial and movement-mediat… Read more

Response of goats to intramuscular vaccination with heat-killed Mycobacterium bovis and natural challenge

Investigation published in Comparative Immunology, Microbiology and Infectious Diseases


Caprine TB causes chronic disease with severe economic and health consequences. We assessed the effect of intramuscularly administered heat-inactivated Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) on 20 kid goats (10 vaccinated, 10 controls), naturally exposed to M. caprae through close contact with infected goats. At necropsy, visible TB-compatible lesions were recorded in all animals with the exception of 1 control and 2 vaccinated goats. The median of the total lesion score was 9 (IQR 3-13.5) and 5 (IQR 3-6.75) in control and vaccinated goats, respectively (median lesion reduction 44.4%, p = … Read more

Limited performance of MALDI-TOF for identification of fish Aeromonas isolates at species level

Investigation published in Journal of Fish Diseases


The aim of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the MALDI-TOF MS to identify 151 isolates of Aeromonas obtained mostly from diseased fish. MALDI-TOF MS correctly identified all isolates to the genus level but important differences in the percentage of isolates correctly identified depending on the species were observed. Considering exclusively the first identification option, Aeromonas bestiarum, Aeromonas hydrophila, Aeromonas salmonicida, Aeromonas veronii and Aeromonas sobria were the best identified with results >95%. However, considering the first and second identification options… Read more

Management of hunting waste as control measure for tuberculosis in wild ungulates in south-central Spain

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article


In recent decades, habitat change and the intensive management of wild ungulates for hunting have led to an increase in their populations in south-central Spain. This implies a higher generation of hunting waste, which can favour the transmission of infectious diseases, including tuberculosis (TB). The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of the proper disposal of hunting waste as TB control measure in wild boar (Sus scrofa) and red deer (Cervus elaphus) during the 2008/2009 to 2016/2017 hunting seasons. Blood samples from 664 wild boar and 934 red deer were obtained in 14 game estat… Read more
