Spatio-temporal epidemiology of anthrax in Hippopotamus amphibious in Queen Elizabeth Protected Area, Uganda

Investigation published in PLoS ONE


Background Anthrax is a zoonotic disease primarily of herbivores, caused by Bacillus anthracis, a bacterium with diverse geographical and global distribution. Globally, livestock outbreaks have declined but in Africa significant outbreaks continue to occur with most countries still categorized as enzootic, hyper endemic or sporadic. Uganda experiences sporadic human and livestock cases. Severe large-scale outbreaks occur periodically in hippos (Hippopotamus amphibious) at Queen Elizabeth Protected Area, where in 2004/2005 and 2010 anthrax killed 437 hippos. Ecological drivers of these outbrea… Read more

Evaluation of the McLintock syringe as a cause of non-specific reactions in the intradermal tuberculin test used for the diagnosis of bovine tuberculosis

Investigation article published in Research in Veterinary Science


The objective of this study was to elucidate whether the use of the McLintock syringe, used to inject tuberculin in cattle in several countries and based on an intradermal inoculation by needle, may, in itself, cause skin reactions that can be interpreted as positive reactions regardless of the real tuberculosis (TB) infection status of the animals. Forty-four cattle from an officially TB-free (OTF) herd were selected for the experiment. Each animal received four inoculations [one with sterile phosphate buffer saline (PBS) with 10% of glycerol and three with bovine purified protein derivative… Read more

Brote de Listeriosis vinculado al consumo de salmón en Europa

New post in Weblog Madri+d de Seguridad Alimentaria y Alimentación


La Agencia Europea para la Seguridad Alimentaria (EFSA) y el Centro Europeo para la Prevención y el Control de Enfermedades (ECDC) publicaron ayer un informe técnico sobre el brote de Listeria monocytogenes que afecta a varios países europeos y se ha vinculado al consumo de productos de salmón. Los productos listos para el consumo, como el salmón ahumado en frío y el salmón marinado, son la fuente probable de este brote de Listeria monocytogenes que ha afectado a Dinamarca, Alemania y Francia desde 2015. El estudio se basó en la secuenciación del genoma completo (WGS) para identificar el brote… Read more

Nutriscore: la etiqueta relacionada con la calidad nutricional de los alimentos

New online article published in Weblog Madri+d de Seguridad Alimentaria y Alimentación


Instaurado en Francia hace seis meses y pendiente de introducirse en Bélgica y Portugal, el código Nutriscore consiste en un gráfico con coloración gradual del verde al rojo en cinco niveles. Cada producto destacará el color que le corresponda en función de su contenido en azúcares, grasas saturadas, sal, calorías, fibra y proteínas. Así, los colores verdes identificarán los alimentos más saludables y los rojos, a los de menor calidad nutricional… Read more

Rapid differentiation of Staphylococcus aureus subspecies based on MALDI-TOF MS profiles

Investigation published in Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation


Staphylococcus aureus encompasses 2 subspecies ( aureus and anaerobius) with significant differences in their epidemiology and pathogenicity. We evaluated the suitability of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) for the rapid identification of both subspecies using a panel of 52 S. aureus isolates (30 subsp. anaerobius and 22 subsp. aureus) recovered from different origins, countries, and years. The on-board library identification system correctly identified 42 of 52 (81%) S. aureus isolates at the species level with score values >2.0. Limi… Read more

Epidemiological surveillance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in extensively raised pigs in the south of Spain

Preventive Veterinary Medicine publish this investigation article


The role of domestic pigs in the epidemiology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) is considered to be limited due to the characteristics of intensive production systems. However, in southwestern Spain, Iberian pigs are usually raised under extensive management systems, sharing their habitat with other domestic and wild species, some of which may act as reservoirs of MTC. Our objective was to determine the seroprevalence, risk factors, spatial distribution and spoligotypes of MTC circulating in extensively farmed pigs in Andalusia (southern Spain), a region with a high prevalence of tub… Read more

Use of processing fluids and serum samples to characterize porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus dynamics in 3 day-old pigs

Investigation published in Veterinary Microbiology


Collection of serum samples of pigs at weaning to monitor for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) has become a common practice to determine PRRSV herd infection status. Diagnostic sensitivity of this practice is low in herds undergoing PRRSV elimination once prevalence of infection is near zero. Thus, the goal of this study was to characterize the dynamics of PRRSV infection in 3 day-old pigs overtime using serum and serosanguineous fluids obtained as part of castration and tail docking practices (processing fluids (PF)). Secondary goal was to estimate sensitivity and s… Read more
