Phylodynamics and evolutionary epidemiology of African swine fever p72-CVR genes in Eurasia and Africa

Investigation article published in PLoS ONE

African swine fever (ASF) is a complex infectious disease of swine that constitutes devastating impacts on animal health and the world economy. Here, we investigated the evolutionary epidemiology of ASF virus (ASFV) in Eurasia and Africa using the concatenated gene sequences of the viral protein 72 and the central variable region of isolates collected between 1960 and 2015. We used Bayesian phylodynamic models to reconstruct the evolutionary history of the virus, to identify virus population demographics and to quantify dispersal patterns between host species. Results suggest that ASFV exhibit… Read more

Proteger al sector porcino extensivo en España

New online article published in Euroganadería

Hoy en día, el sector porcino en España goza de un estado de salud óptimo que se refleja en las cifras nacionales e internacionales: representa el 37% de la producción final ganadera en España y ocupa el primer lugar del total de ventas de la industria alimentaria, que a su vez es la rama del sector industrial con mayor porcentaje de facturación en nuestro país (MAPAMA, 2017). Esto se debe principalmente a las exportaciones, que han ido aumentando con los años hasta convertirnos en un país fundamentalmente exportador. Así, somos la cuarta potencia productora mundial, tan solo por detrás de Chi… Read more

Understanding Q Fever Risk to Humans in Minnesota Through the Analysis of Spatiotemporal Trends

Investigation article published in Vector borne and zoonotic diseases

Q fever is a widely distributed, yet, neglected zoonotic disease, for which domestic ruminants are considered the main reservoirs in some countries. There are still many gaps in our knowledge of its epidemiology, and the source of sporadic cases is often not determined. In this study, we show how Q fever surveillance data in combination with information routinely collected by government agencies in Minnesota during 1997 to 2015 can be used to characterize patterns of occurrence of Q fever illnesses and detect variables potentially associated with increased human illness. Cluster analysis and B… Read more

Understanding African Swine Fever infection dynamics in Sardinia using a spatially explicit transmission model in domestic pig farms

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article

African swine fever virus (ASFV) has been endemic in Sardinia since 1978, resulting in severe losses for local pig producers and creating important problems for the island`s veterinary authorities. This study used a spatially explicit stochastic transmission model followed by two regression models to investigate the dynamics of ASFV spread amongst domestic pig farms, to identify geographic areas at highest risk and determine the role of different susceptible pig populations (registered domestic pigs, non-registered domestic pigs [brado] and wild boar) in ASF occurrence. We simulated transmissi… Read more
