Scientific reports

Protein metabolism and physical fitness are physiological determinants of body condition in Southern European carnivores

Scientific reports publish this investigation article

The physiological significance of biometric body condition indices (bBCI) is poorly understood. We hypothesized that bBCI are composite metrics of nutritional physiology, physical fitness and health. To test this hypothesis, we first compared the performance of eight bBCI, using 434 Southern European carnivores from six species as a model system; and then identified, by non-destructive methods, the hematology and serum biochemistry correlates of three selected bBCI. Fulton’s K Index, Major Axis Regression Residuals and Scaled Mass Index were the only bBCI insensitive to the effect of sex and a… Read more

Evaluation of Risk Factors Associated With Herds With an Increased Duration of Bovine Tuberculosis Breakdowns in Castilla y Leon, Spain (2010-2017)

Frontiers in veterinary science publish this investigation article

The persistence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in certain cattle herds is a major concern in countries pursuing disease eradication worldwide. The chronic nature of the disease, the lack of performance of diagnostic tools, and the presence of wildlife reservoirs may lead infected herds to require longer periods to achieve the officially tuberculosis-free (OTF) status. Here, we evaluated the impact of farm and breakdown characteristics on the probability of disease persistence in infected farms in Castilla y Leon, a bTB-endemic region of Spain, using survival and logistic regression models. Data … Read more

Miedo a la llegada de la peste por los tres muertos en Mongolia: Los expertos españoles opinan

Miedo a la peste

Tras la pandemia del Coronavirus y los casos surgidos de peste en Mongolia consultamos a los expertos en microbiología, Raul Rivas y Víctor Briones para conocer si hay riesgo de un nuevo brote de Peste. La bacteria Yersinia pestis, que provoca la enfermedad contagiosa, es una de las bacterias que presenta menos modificaciones. Esta característica junto a la invención de los antibióticos hacen reducir la tasa de mortalidad de la peste. Esta misma enfermedad arrasó Europa durante el siglo XIV…

Strength of association between isolation of Pasteurella multocida and consolidation lesions in ovine pneumonic pasteurellosis

Investigation published in Veterinary Microbiology

This study investigated the association of Pasteurella multocida isolation and the molecular characteristics of the isolates with the presence of pneumonic lesions in lambs at slaughter to assess its importance as a causative agent of pneumonic pasteurellosis compared with Mannheimia haemolytica. P. multocida was isolated from the 13.9% and 2.7%, and M. haemolytica from the 36.4% and 26.8%, of lungs with and without lesions, respectively (P < 0.05). Both microorganisms were frequently coisolated (23.2% and 12.5% from lungs with and without lesions, respectively). Isolation of P. multocida alon… Read more

Comparing serotyping with whole-genome sequencing for subtyping of non-typhoidal Salmonella enterica: a large-scale analysis of 37 serotypes with a public health impact in the USA

Microbial Genomics publish this investigation article

Serotyping has traditionally been used for subtyping of non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS) isolates. However, its discriminatory power is limited, which impairs its use for epidemiological investigations of source attribution. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) analysis allows more accurate subtyping of strains. However, because of the relative newness and cost of routine WGS, large-scale studies involving NTS WGS are still rare. We aimed to revisit the big picture of subtyping NTS with a public health impact by using traditional serotyping (i.e. reaction between antisera and surface antigens) and comp… Read more

Accuracy of tuberculosis diagnostic tests in small ruminants: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Investigation article published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine

Tuberculosis (TB) in small ruminants is a neglected disease despite its major impact on goat and sheep production and the global public health. The awareness of the role of small ruminants in the epidemiology of animal TB has increased in the last two decades, however, there is a lack of standardization of procedures and robust quantitative estimates on the accuracy of diagnostic TB tests in the scientific literature. To address this knowledge gap, all the available information regarding the use of ante-mortem diagnostic techniques in small ruminants was collected and summarized through a syst… Read more

Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases

Detection of antibodies against tick-borne encephalitis flaviviruses in breeding and sport horses from Spain

Investigation article published in Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases

Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) and louping-ill virus (LIV) are two closely related zoonotic flaviviruses leading to neurological diseases and belonging to the tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) serocomplex. Both viruses are transmitted by the same ixodid tick vector, Ixodes ricinus. Due to global warming affecting vector biology and pathogen transmission, the viruses pose an emerging threat for public health in Europe and Asia. These flaviviruses share some hosts, like sheep, goats and humans, although the main hosts for LIV and TBEV are sheep and small rodents, respectively. Whereas LIV has … Read more

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases

Prevalence and trend analysis of antimicrobial resistance in clinical Escherichia coli isolates collected from diseased pigs in the USA between 2006 and 2016

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publish this investigation article

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an emerging threat to both human and animal health. Antimicrobial use and resistance in food animal production including swine has received increased scrutiny as a source of resistant foodborne pathogens. Continuous surveillance of AMR in bacterial isolates of swine origin can guide in conservation of antimicrobials used in both human and swine medicine. The objective of this study was to evaluate the prevalence and trends of the phenotypic AMR in Escherichia coli of swine origin isolated from clinical samples at the Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic laboratory … Read more
