The Lancet

Host or pathogen-related factors in COVID-19 severity?

Investigation published in The Lancet


Lucy Okell and colleagues1 observed that the transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is currently in marked decline in many countries. Okell and colleagues suggest two possible explanations for this decline, namely the effect of lockdowns, physical distancing, and other interventions; or, alternatively, herd immunity. After analysing trends in cumulative deaths over time in many European countries that went into lockdown at different stages of their epidemic, and data obtained from serology studies on the proportion of the population that had the infection … Read more

El virus de la peste porcina africana, un viejo enemigo que vuelve a amenazarnos

RISA lucha contra la PPA en España


La noticia reciente de los casos de peste porcina africana (PPA) aparecidos en Alemania han activado la alarma en Europa una vez más por la amenaza que supone este virus porcino devastador. La investigación en Sanidad Animal en España hace décadas que estudia esta enfermedad y tiene estrategias preparadas para anticipar la detección de posibles casos e intentar disponer de una vacuna eficaz. La Red de Investigación en Sanidad Animal (RISA) aglutina a la mayoría de los centros y grupos de investigación dedicados a trabajar con la PPA de nuestro país…

Antimicrobial Resistance of Coagulase-Positive Staphylococcus Isolates Recovered in a Veterinary University Hospital

Investigation published in Antibiotics


The Staphylococcus pseudintermedius group (SIG) is an emerging threat in veterinary medicine, particularly methicillin-resistant (MRSP) isolates, which are frequently associated with multidrug resistance. Reliable identification of SIG members is critical to establish correct antimicrobial treatments. However, information on the molecular epidemiology and antimicrobial resistance patterns of MRSP in some regions is still limited. This study aimed to assess the antimicrobial resistance of SIG isolates recovered from animals at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of Complutense University of Madrid… Read more

Genetic Determinants of Resistance to Extended-Spectrum Cephalosporin and Fluoroquinolone in Escherichia coli Isolated from Diseased Pigs in the United States

Investigation published in mSphere


Fluoroquinolones and cephalosporins are critically important antimicrobial classes for both human and veterinary medicine. We previously found a drastic increase in enrofloxacin resistance in clinical Escherichia coli isolates collected from diseased pigs from the United States over 10 years (2006 to 2016). However, the genetic determinants responsible for this increase have yet to be determined. The aim of the present study was to identify and characterize the genetic basis of resistance against fluoroquinolones (enrofloxacin) and extended-spectrum cephalosporins (ceftiofur) in swine E. coli … Read more

Reduction of Salmonella Typhimurium Cecal Colonisation and Improvement of Intestinal Health in Broilers Supplemented with Fermented Defatted `Alperujo`, an Olive Oil By-Product

Animals publish this investigation article


Salmonella spp. contaminates egg and poultry meat leading to foodborne infections in humans. The emergence of antimicrobial-resistant strains limit the use of antimicrobials. We aimed to determine the effects of the food supplement, fermented defatted ‘alperujo’, a modified olive-oil by-product, on Salmonella Typhimurium colonisation in broilers. One hundred and twenty 1-day-old broilers were divided into four experimental groups: 2 control groups and 2 treated groups, and challenged with S. Typhimurium at day 7 or 21. On days 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42 of life, duodenum and caecum tissue sample… Read more

Evaluación del efecto del lugar de inoculación en los resultados de la prueba de intradermotuberculinización en ganado caprino

Jose Sánchez Cesteros defended this Degree Final Project


The place of inoculation is related to the sensitivity of intradermal tuberculin test in cattle, so much so, that the legislation and procedure manuals strictly specify that it should be carried out at half height in the limit between the anterior and the middle third of the neck. However, the usual practice in goats is to use the scapula zone as indicated by some specific goat tuberculosis programmes. The effect of the inoculation place in the intradermal test has been studied by comparing the increase in skin-fold thickness, the number of test reactors and the detection of clinical signs in … Read more

Identifying Spanish Areas at More Risk of Monthly BTV Transmission with a Basic Reproduction Number Approach

Viruses-Basel publish this investigation article


Bluetongue virus (BTV) causes a disease that is endemic in Spain and its two major biological vector species, C. imicola and the Obsoletus complex species, differ greatly in their ecology and distribution. Understanding the seasonality of BTV transmission in risk areas is key to improving surveillance and control programs, as well as to better understand the pathogen transmission networks between wildlife and livestock. Here, monthly risk transmission maps were generated using risk categories based on well-known BTV R0 equations and predicted abundances of the two most relevant vectors in Spai… Read more

Quantifying wildlife-livestock interactions and their spatio-temporal patterns: Is regular grid camera trapping a suitable approach?

Investigation published in Ecological Indicators


Camera trapping use has increased significantly in ecological studies in recent decades due to its ability to register information about cryptic and/or elusive species and, more recently, due to its ability to derive population parameters, such as population abundance or density. For these latter applications, camera traps set in a regular grid pattern (CT-RG) are required to obtain representative information of the study area. The present work aims to assess the usefulness of the information collected through CT-RG to study interspecific interactions between animals, in terms of frequency of … Read more
