Ancient Rome and the zoonoses

New article published in Revista Complutense de Ciencias Veterinarias


Ancient Rome was an unhealthy and annoying city, far from our sound idea about it, associated to palaces, temples and statues. Daily life used to take place in a crowded environment, where malnutrition and poverty thrived. Direct or indirect fecal contamination from humans and animals of water and food was highly probable. Spills and pollution of watercourses and reservoirs with filth and carrion occurred often, this favoring pathogens and vectors. The lack of appropriate cleansing of streets and sewers, and the regular presence of animals –insects included– in streets and households guarantee… Read more

Application of quantitative analytic methods for the epidemiological study of zoonotic diseases

PhD Thesis defense by Mª Luisa de la Cruz Conty at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


The present doctoral thesis explored the usefulness of the application of quantitative analytic methods for the study of the epidemiology of diseases of relevance in animal and public health. Most epidemiological studies are based on the classification of individuals from a given population as infected or uninfected based on the results obtained in a diagnostic test. However, often the accuracy of the test is not formally evaluated, or estimates obtained in a different (and non-applicable) context are merely extrapolated, what can lead to important biases. In this thesis, Bayesian models… Read more

Immunoproteomic characterization of protein derivatives from Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium avium (subspecies avium and paratuberculosis) and Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis. Application in diagnosis

PhD Thesis defense by Jose Antonio Infantes Lorenzo at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


Animal tuberculosis is a zoonotic infection caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), especially M. bovis and M. caprae. It represents an important health problem, in humans, domestic animals and wildlife. For this reason, in the European Union, cattle are subject to an eradication programme, based on " test-and slaughter" strategies, which implies the removal of animals that react positively to diagnostic tests. The official diagnostic tests are based on the cell immune response against the bovine tuberculin or PPDb. This is a purified protein derivative (PPD) prepar… Read more

El virus de la Hepatitis E: un patógeno zoonósico emergente en Europa

New article published in Badajoz Veterinaria


El virus de la hepatitis E (VHE) es considerado como el agente principal de hepatitis viral aguda epidémica en países en vías de desarrollo (se estima que se producen cada año alrededor de 20 millones de infecciones por el VHE en todo el mundo), mientras que en países desarrollados se dan casos principalmente esporádicos relacionados, en la mayoría de los casos, con los animales, considerándose actualmente la hepatitis E una zoonosis emergente. Existen cuatro genotipos principales del VHE (de un total de 8) que muestran características epidemiológicas y clínicas diferenciadas. El VHE se transm… Read more
