Desarrollo y puesta a punto de una técnica de base inmunológica para la detección conjunta de ricina y aglutinina

Presentation by Virginia Colmena García to obtain the Master in Disaster Management


La ricina es una de las toxinas más potentes conocidas, que se encuentra en la semilla del ricino (Ricinus communis). El Centro para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades de Estados Unidos (CDC) la clasifica como posible arma biológica. Existen diferentes métodos para la detección de esta proteína, siendo la técnica inmunológica ELISA, especialmente el ELISA tipo sándwich, la que está considerada como la técnica más robusta para su análisis, ya que es sensible, específica, con límites de detección de picogramos y fácil de realizar. No obstante, el reto está en poder diferenciar la ricina … Read more

Circulation of a novel strain of dolphin morbillivirus (DMV) in stranded cetaceans in the Mediterranean Sea

Investigation article published in Scientific reports


Dolphin morbillivirus (DMV) has been responsible for several outbreaks of systemic infection and has resulted in cetacean strandings in the Mediterranean. In August-October 2016, seven striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) stranded on the Sicilian coastline (Italy) tested positive for DMV. Tissue samples from brain, lung, pulmonary lymph nodes, heart, spleen, liver, stomach, intestine, kidneys and urinary bladder, as well as blowhole swabs, were collected during necropsy for molecular diagnostics and pathology studies. Extracted tissue RNA was screened for DMV by real-time reverse transcrip… Read more

Nucleotide sequence variations may be associated with virulence of deformed wing virus

Investigation published in Apidologie


Western honey bees (Apis mellifera) are key players in crop pollination and in the maintenance of global biodiversity. Their viability is threatened by Varroa destructor, which acts as a vector of the deformed wing virus (DWV). Several genetic DWV variants have been reported, but it is unclear whether their virulence differs. We examined the prevalence of V. destructor and DWV as well as bee health in two colonies over 21 months and then characterizing DWV variants from each colony using phylogenetics. Colony H showed no signs of disease or mortality, and DWV sequence from this colony clustere… Read more

Evaluation of the health status of the main aquaculture species in Papua New Guinea

PhD Thesis defense by Ruth García Gómez at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


The aquaculture sector has been strongly promoted y developed in a technically feasible, economically viable y long-term sustainable way in the Pacific Region for more than two decades. Numerous international, intergovernmental, regional agencies y programs have focused their economic y human efforts on the sustainable development of this sub-sector (within the fisheries sector) in the Pacific, with limited results y not many successful stories. The Oceania region remains the world`s least developed region in the world`s aquaculture sector, with some exceptions such as Australia y New Zealy, f… Read more

Animal welfare epidemiology: how epidemiologists help to improve the welfare of animals

Conference in Seminarios VISAVET 2019


Animal welfare epidemiology is a rapidly growing area in veterinary science. Epidemiology offers the methodology to quantify the welfare impact of individual diseases on the animals, compare the impact among different diseases and facilitate disease prioritisation. Animal welfare science extends the focus of veterinary epidemiology − animal health – to a broader sense of animal well-being. The concept of animal welfare epidemiology is then demonstrated by the epidemiological studies on the impact of feline obesity on the survival and health in cats, follow by Welfare-Adjusted Life Year (… Read more
