Use of Epidemiological Analytic Tools and Molecular Characterization Techniques to Inform Bovine Tuberculosis Eradication Programs

PhD Thesis defense by Pilar Pozo Piñol at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is an infectious disease with a complex epidemiology at the human-animal-environment interface which, despite the application of extensive control measures, is still prevalent in livestock and wildlife in several regions of Spain. The disease, caused by Mycobacterium bovis (and to a lesser extent M. caprae), remains a concern due to its negative impact on animal health and welfare, together with the important consequences for production and animal trade that its presence imposes. Eradication programs of bTB in cattle in Spain are based on a combination of regular test… Read more

Distinct African Swine Fever Virus Shedding in Wild Boar Infected with Virulent and Attenuated Isolates

Vaccine publish this investigation article


Abstract: Since the reappearance of African swine fever virus (ASFV), the disease has spread in an unprecedented animal pandemic in Eurasia. ASF currently constitutes the greatest global problem for the swine industry. The wild boar (Sus scrofa) in which the pathogen has established wild self-sustaining cycles, is a key reservoir for ASFV, signifying that there is an urgent need to develop an effective vaccine against this virus. Current scientific debate addresses whether live attenuated vaccines (LAVs), which have shown promising results in cross-protection of susceptible hosts, may be feasi… Read more

Primary and promiscuous functions coexist during evolutionary innovation through whole protein domain acquisitions

Investigation published in eLife


Abstract Molecular examples of evolutionary innovation are scarce and generally involve point mutations. Innovation can occur through larger rearrangements, but here experimental data is extremely limited. Integron integrases innovated from double-strand- toward single-strand-DNA recombination through the acquisition of the I2 a-helix. To investigate how this transition was possible, we have evolved integrase IntI1 to what should correspond to an early innovation state by selecting for its ancestral activity. Using synonymous alleles to enlarge sequence space exploration, we have retrieved 13… Read more

Evaluation of new vaccines against tuberculosis in goats and advances in their immunological diagnosis

PhD Thesis defense by Álvaro Roy Cordero at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


Tuberculosis in goats is a zoonotic mycobacteriosis, mainly caused by M. caprae and M. bovis, which leads to important economic losses for the goat producers and may represent a reservoir of tuberculosis for other domestic and wild animal species, as well as humans. At the European level, the active diagnosis of tuberculosis in goats is limited to goat herds coexisting or having epidemiological links with infected cattle or when raw milk and products made from raw milk are intended for human consumption (European Regulation EC 853/2004). However, specific eradication programs have been impleme… Read more

Global emergence and evolutionary dynamics of bluetongue virus

Investigation published in Scientific reports


Bluetongue virus (BTV) epidemics are responsible for worldwide economic losses of up to US$ 3 billion. Understanding the global evolutionary epidemiology of BTV is critical in designing intervention programs. Here we employed phylodynamic models to quantify the evolutionary characteristics, spatiotemporal origins, and multi-host transmission dynamics of BTV across the globe. We inferred that goats are the ancestral hosts for BTV but are less likely to be important for cross-species transmission, sheep and cattle continue to be important for the transmission and maintenance of infection between… Read more

Histopathological and microbiological study of porcine lymphadenitis: contributions to diagnosis and control of the disease

Investigation article published in Porcine Health Management


Tuberculosis like lesions (TBL) in free-range pigs are characterised by presenting a marked heterogeneity in pathology and microbiology features, with a notorious role of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC), Trueperella pyogenes and different Streptococcus species. However, the capacity of these microorganism to spread to different organic cavities leading to a generalised disease is unknown. Therefore, this study evaluated the organic distribution of these agents in free-range pig carcasses whole condemned due to generalised TBL.A total of 37 totally condemned animals were analysed, and … Read more

Molecular detection of extended spectrum B-lactamase genes in Escherichia coli clinical isolates from diarrhoeic children in Kano, Nigeria

PLoS ONE publish this investigation article


The increase in antimicrobial resistance in developed and developing countries is a global public health challenge. In this context β-lactamase production is a major contributing factor to resistance globally. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of phenotypic and genotypic extended spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) in 296 E. coli isolates recovered from diarrhoeic children younger than five years in Kano whose susceptibility profile against 7 antimicrobials had been determined. The E. coli isolates were subjected to double disc synergy test for phenotypic ESBLs detectio… Read more
