Spatio-temporal trends in the frequency of interspecific interactions between domestic and wild ungulates from Mediterranean Spain

Investigation article published in PLoS ONE


Controlling infections shared by wildlife and livestock requires the understanding and quantification of interspecific interactions between the species involved. This is particularly important in extensive multi-host systems, in which controlled domestic animals interact with uncontrolled, abundant and expanding wild species, such as wild ungulates. We have, therefore, quantified the interspecific interactions between wild boar (Sus scrofa) and free-ranging cattle in Mediterranean Spain, along with their spatio-temporal variability. GPS-GSM-collars were used to monitor 12 cows and 14 wild boar… Read more

New serological platform for detecting antibodies against Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in European badgers

Investigation article published in Veterinary Medicine and Science


European badgers (Meles meles) have been identified as wildlife reservoirs for Mycobacterium bovis in the UK and Ireland, and may also have a role in the epidemiology of animal tuberculosis in other European regions. Thus, detection of M. bovis-infected badgers may be required for the purposes of surveillance and monitoring of disease levels in infected populations. Current serological assays to detect M. bovis infection in live badgers, while rapid and inexpensive, show limited diagnostic sensitivity. Here we describe and evaluate new ELISA platforms for the recognition of the P22 multiprotei… Read more

Revisiting area risk classification of visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil

Investigation article published in BMC infectious diseases


Background: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a neglected tropical disease of public health relevance in Brazil. To prioritize disease control measures, the Secretaria de Vigilância em Saúde of Brazil’s Ministry of Health (SVS/MH) uses retrospective human case counts from VL surveillance data to inform a municipality-based risk classification. In this study, we compared the underlying VL risk, using a spatiotemporal explicit Bayesian hierarchical model (BHM), with the risk classification currently in use by the Brazil’s Ministry of Health. We aim to assess how well the current risk classes captur… Read more

Validation of a new serological assay for the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex-specific antibodies in pigs and wild boar

Investigation published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine


Background and objectives Animal tuberculosis (TB) is a multi-host disease involving a wide variety of domestic and wild mammals and causing a significant economic burden and sanitary problems. Wild boar and domestic pigs (Sus scrofa) are indicators of the circulation of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) and can play a role in its maintenance. The proper diagnosis of MTC contact in these species is, therefore, a key factor as regards controlling TB. The objective of the current study is to evaluate the diagnostic performance of the protein complex P22 as a candidate for use in an i… Read more

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

Could African swine fever and classical swine fever viruses enter into the United States via swine products carried in air passengers` luggage?

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article


On average 8,000 pork derived products are annually confiscated by Customs and Border Protection at the United States (US) ports of entry such as international airports, harbours or mail offices. These swine products with unknown sanitary status could pose a risk for foreign animal diseases introduction into the US. This study aimed at analysing the risk of African swine fever virus (ASFV) and classical swine fever virus (CSFV) being introduced into the US through prohibited swine products carried by air passengers (PSPAP) and identifying locations and time periods at higher risk where and whe… Read more

Assessment of reproducibility of a VP7 Blocking ELISA diagnostic test for African horse sickness

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article


The laboratory diagnosis of African horse sickness (AHS) is important for: (a) demonstrating freedom from infection in a population, animals or products for trade (b) assessing the efficiency of eradication policies; (c) laboratory confirmation of clinical diagnosis; (d) estimating the prevalence of AHS infection; and (e) assessing postvaccination immune status of individual animals or populations. Although serological techniques play a secondary role in the confirmation of clinical cases, their use is very important for all the other purposes due to their high throughput, ease of use and good… Read more

OIE project to replace International Standard Bovine Tuberculin

OIE Bulletin publish this article


An OIE ad hoc Group of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) experts is coordinating a project to evaluate, calibrate and validate a replacement for the OIE’s International Standard Bovine Tuberculin (ISBT). The ISBT is used as a reference standard for quality control tests for purified protein derivative (PPD) bovine tuberculins that are used in bTB surveillance, diagnosis and export certification. The current reference standard was produced in 1986 and is becoming depleted, so it must be replaced… Read more
