Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex Infection in Eurasian Badger (Meles meles) and Cattle in Asturias, Spain

Animals publish this investigation article


The present work investigated the prevalence, spatial distribution, and temporal distribution of tuberculosis (TB) in free-ranging Eurasian badgers (Meles meles) and cattle in Asturias (Atlantic Spain) during a 13-year follow-up. The study objective was to assess the role of badgers as a TB reservoir for cattle and other sympatric wild species in the region. Between 2008 and 2020, 673 badgers (98 trapped and 575 killed in road traffic accidents) in Asturias were necropsied, and their tissue samples were cultured for the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) isolation. Serum samples were tes… Read more

Tuberculosis in the new Animal Health Law

New online article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal


Implications of the European Union reference laboratory for bovine tuberculosis in the new mandatory text. The new Animal Health Law (Regulation (EU) 2016/429) on communicable diseases of animals, which was approved five years ago, will become applicable on the 21st of April 2021. This text, which modifies and repeals certain legislations in the field of animal health, simplifies the priorities in the prevention and eradication of diseases such as bovine tuberculosis. The regulation also clarifies the responsibilities of all people working directly withanimals, such as farmers or veteri… Read more

The Plasmid-Mediated Kluyvera-Like arnBCADTEF Operon Confers Colistin (Hetero)Resistance to Escherichia coli

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy publish this investigation article


The use of colistin as a last resort antimicrobial is compromised by the emergence of resistant enterobacteria with acquired determinants like mcr genes, mutations that activate the PmrAB system and by still unknown mechanisms. This work analyzed 74 E. coli isolates from healthy swine, turkey or bovine, characterizing their colistin resistance determinants. The mcr-1 gene, detected in 69 isolates, was the main determinant found among which 45% were carried by highly mobile plasmids, followed by four strains lacking previously known resistance determinants or two with mcr-4 (one in addition to … Read more

Population genomics and antimicrobial resistance dynamics of Escherichia coli in wastewater and river environments

Investigation published in Communications Biology


Aquatic environments are key niches for the emergence, evolution and dissemination of antimicrobial resistance. However, the population diversity and the genetic elements that drive the dynamics of resistant bacteria in different aquatic environments are still largely unknown. The aim of this study was to understand the population genomics and evolutionary events of Escherichia coli resistant to clinically important antibiotics including aminoglycosides, in anthropogenic and natural water ecosystems. Here we show that less different E. coli sequence types (STs) are identified in wastewater tha… Read more

Description and implementation of an On-farm Wildlife Risk Mitigation Protocol at the wildlife-livestock interface: tuberculosis in Mediterranean environments

Preventive Veterinary Medicine publish this investigation article


Animal tuberculosis (TB), which is caused by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC), is a zoonotic disease of global concern, and has a wide variety of wild and domestic reservoirs that can establish complex epidemiological systems. Of all the strategies employed to control TB, reducing the risks of interaction at the wildlife-livestock interface is a cornerstone. However, detailed protocols with which to assess and implement farm-specific preventive actions that can be employed against interactions with wildlife are lacking for extensive production systems. We describe an On-farm Wildli… Read more

Effect of Biscuit Flour and Fermented Defatted Alperujo Co-Administration on Intestinal Mucosa Morphology and Productive Performance in Laying Hens

Investigation article published in Animals


In this study, the effects of co‐administration with biscuit flour and fermented defatted “alperujo” (FDA) on gut health were evaluated in a batch of laying hens (Hy‐Line 2015) on a commercial farm. Animals were divided into two groups: control group and treatment group; and histological and morphometric analyses of all sections of the intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileum, cecum and rectum) were performed at 10, 18, 25, 50 and 75 weeks of age. During the whole productive period, a decrease in the mortality rate (p = 0.01) was observed in treated hens, as well as an increase in the n… Read more

Spoligotype-specific risk of finding lesions in tissues from cattle infected by Mycobacterium bovis

BMC Veterinary Research publish this investigation article


Although the pathogenic effect of members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in susceptible hosts is well known, differences in clinical signs and pathological findings observed in infected animals have been reported, likely due to a combination of host and pathogen-related factors. Here, we investigated whether Mycobacterium bovis strains belonging to different spoligotypes were associated with a higher risk of occurrence of visible/more severe lesions in target organs (lungs and/or lymph nodes) from infected animals. A large collection of 8889 samples belonging to cattle were classifi… Read more

Evaluation of the performance of slaughterhouse surveillance for bovine tuberculosis detection in Castilla y Leon, Spain

Investigation article published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine


Post-mortem inspection (PMI) of routinely slaughtered cattle in abattoirs is an extremely valuable tool for detecting bovine tuberculosis (bTB) infected herds that can supplement active surveillance activities. However, its true performance is difficult to assess due to the multiple factors that may affect it. Here, we determined relative efficiencies in the detection of bTB-compatible lesions and probabilities of subsequent laboratory confirmation of abattoirs located in Castilla y Leon, one of the regions with the largest cattle population in Spain, between 2010 and 2017. The slaughtered ani… Read more
