Las Ratas y (luego) La Peste

Profesión Veterinaria publish this article

La peste es una zoonosis bacteriana causada por Yersinia pestis con una elevada tasa de letalidad en ausencia de tratamiento. En la percepción actual, la peste se asocia a las grandes pandemias de la historia, la plaga de Justiniano, la Peste Negra medieval y la pandemia asiática de finales del siglo XIX. Ya el libro de Samuel de la Biblia la menciona. A pesar de parecer algo del pasado, la peste es todavía endémica en muchos países y se notifican un buen número de casos cada año. Actualmente la República Democrática del Congo, Madagascar –con una epidemia activa- y Perú concentran la mayor pa… Read more

The Veterinary Record

Hypervitaminosis D has no positive effects on goat tuberculosis and may cause chronic renal lesions

Investigation article published in The Veterinary Record

BACKGROUND: There is evidence for a link between vitamin D deficiency and active tuberculosis (TB). In human beings, several trials have evaluated the role of vitamin D supplementation in TB treatment with conflicting results. However, the role of vitamin D supplementation in animal TB control has received less attention. The authors evaluated the benefit of vitamin D supplementation for preventing mycobacterial infection or reducing TB lesions (TBL) in a controlled trial with goats naturally exposed to Mycobacterium caprae. METHODS: Two groups of goats, a vitamin D-supplemented group… Read more

Antimicrobial susceptibility of Pasteurella multocida isolated from sheep and pigs in Spain - Short communication

Investigation published in Acta veterinaria Hungarica

Pasteurella multocida is responsible for economically important diseases in sheep and pigs. Antimicrobial susceptibility studies are essential for initiating rational and effective empirical therapy of P. multocida infections. In this study we investigated the antimicrobial susceptibility to 18 antimicrobial agents of 156 clinical isolates of P. multocida from sheep (n = 87) and pigs (n = 69) using the microdilution method. Both sheep and pig isolates exhibited low levels of resistance (≤ 15%) to ceftiofur, gentamicin, neomycin, spectinomycin, chlortetracycline, tulathromycin, florfenico… Read more

Tuberculosis Epidemiology and Badger (Meles meles) Spatial Ecology in a Hot-Spot Area in Atlantic Spain

Pathogens publish this investigation article

We provide a temporal overview (from 2012 to 2018) of the outcomes of tuberculosis (TB) in the cattle and badger populations in a hot-spot in Asturias (Atlantic Spain). We also study the badger’s spatial ecology from an epidemiological perspective in order to describe hazardous behavior in relation to TB transmission between cattle and badgers. Culture and single intradermal tuberculin test (SITT) were available for cattle as part of the National Program for the Eradication of TB. A field survey was also carried out in order to determine the paddocks and buildings used by each farm, and the in… Read more

The Veterinary Record

Association between results of diagnostic tests for bovine tuberculosis and Johne`s disease in cattle

Investigation published in The Veterinary Record

BACKGROUND: Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) diagnosis is impaired by numerous factors including cross-reactivity with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis, which causes Johne`s disease (JD). In addition, the effect of repeated bTB-intradermal testing on the performance of JD diagnostic tests is not fully understood. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of repeated bTB-intradermal tests under field conditions in Spain on the JD serological status of cattle. METHODS: bTB-positive herds (n=264) from Castilla-y-Leon region were selected and matched with officially tuberculosis-free co… Read more

Selective Persulfide Detection Reveals Evolutionarily Conserved Antiaging Effects of S-Sulfhydration

Cell metabolism publish this investigation article

Life on Earth emerged in a hydrogen sulfide (H2S)-rich environment eons ago and with it protein persulfidation mediated by H2S evolved as a signaling mechanism. Protein persulfidation (S-sulfhydration) is a post-translational modification of reactive cysteine residues, which modulate protein structure and/or function. Persulfides are difficult to label and study due to their reactivity and similarity with cysteine. Here, we report a facile strategy for chemoselective persulfide bioconjugation using dimedone-based probes, to achieve highly selective, rapid, and robust persulfide labeling in bio… Read more

Use of a voluntary testing program to study the spatial epidemiology of Johne’s disease affecting dairy herds in Minnesota: a cross sectional study

Investigation article published in BMC Veterinary Research

One of the key steps in the management of chronic diseases in animals including Johne’s disease (JD), caused by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP), is the ability to track disease incidence over space and time. JD surveillance in the U.S. dairy cattle is challenging due to lack of regulatory requirements, imperfect diagnostic tests, and associated expenses, including time and labor. An alternative approach is to use voluntary testing programs. Here, data from a voluntary JD testing program, conducted by the Minnesota Dairy Herd Improvement Association, were used to: a) explore w… Read more

Assessment of the sensitivity of the bovine tuberculosis eradication program in a high prevalence region of Spain using scenario tree modeling

Investigation published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine

In spite of the efforts invested to eradicate bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle, the disease is still present in several developed countries, including Spain. Among the factors related with disease persistence in high prevalence areas, the lack of sensitivity of the screening test for detection of infected herds [single intradermal tuberculin (SIT) test] can play a major role. Here, a scenario tree model mimicking the diagnostic test scheme in place in the region of Castilla y Leon (Spain) was developed to estimate the probability of detecting bTB in an infected-non detected officially tuber… Read more

Gene pool transmission of multidrug resistance among Campylobacter from livestock, sewage and human disease

Investigation published in Environmental Microbiology

The use of antimicrobials in human and veterinary medicine has coincided with a rise in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the food‐borne pathogens Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli. Faecal contamination from the main reservoir hosts (livestock, especially poultry) is the principal route of human infection but little is known about the spread of AMR among source and sink populations. In particular, questions remain about how Campylobacter resistomes interact between species and hosts, and the potential role of sewage as a conduit for the spread of AMR. Here we investigate the ge… Read more

Applied swine immunology: from vaccines to diagnosis

Suis publish this article

Immunology is an area of research, development and transfer, essential in pig health and pig production. Although its progress is based on the study of the basic concepts of the body`s defense mechanisms against foreign elements and pathogens, the highly applicable aspects of swine immunology for its use in prevention, diagnosis, control and eradication of swine infectious diseases have a decisive influence in its development as a science, which cannot make us forget the need to strengthen the basic investigation of the characteristic immune response of the pig, in many aspects, very distincti… Read more
