Veterinary Record Case Reports

Outbreak of acute highly lethal phlegmon in the pharynx, associated with a new Pasteurella multocida MLST type ST63, in a limousine herd

Investigation published in Veterinary Record Case Reports

We report an outbreak of pharyngeal inflammation in an extensive limousine herd, in central Spain, associated with a novel genotype (ST63) of Pasteurella multocida capsular serogroup B (capB). The outbreak affected cattle of all ages, reaching death rate of 17.6% and case fatality rate 93.3%. Affected animals showed throat inflammation, respiratory distress and finally death, without characteristics of depression or haemorrhagic septicaemia in an acute course. Postmortem examination only revealed inflammation including oedema in the pharynx and surrounding tissues. None of the necropsied anima… Read more

MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry as a Rapid Screening Alternative for Non-tuberculous Mycobacterial Species Identification in the Veterinary Laboratory

Frontiers in veterinary science publish this investigation article

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are difficult to identify by biochemical and genetic methods due to their microbiological properties and complex taxonomy. The development of more efficient and rapid methods for species identification in the veterinary microbiological laboratory is, therefore, of great importance. Although MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry (MS) has become a promising tool for the identification of NTM species in human clinical practise, information regarding its performance on veterinary isolates is scarce. This study assesses the capacity of MALDI-TOF MS to identify NTM isolates … Read more

Effect of the topical administration of corticosteroids and tuberculin pre-sensitisation on the diagnosis of tuberculosis in goats

BMC Veterinary Research publish this investigation article

Background: Caprine tuberculosis (TB) is a zoonosis caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC). Caprine TB control and eradication programmes have traditionally been based on intradermal tuberculin tests and slaughterhouse surveillance. However, this strategy has limitations in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Different factors may affect the performance of the TB diagnostic tests used in goats and, subsequently, the detection of TB-infected animals. In the present study, the effect of two of the factors that may affect the performance of the techniques used to dia… Read more

African Swine Fever Survey in a European Context

Pathogens publish this investigation article

African swine fever (ASF) is currently the most threatening disease for domestic and wild pigs worldwide. Wild boar has been the main affected species in all EU countries except for Romania, where most notifications occur in domestic pigs. The spread of ASF in wild boar is challenging to control; risk factors are harder to identify and establish than in domestic pigs, which, together with an underestimation of the disease and the lack of treatment or an effective vaccine, are hindering control and eradication efforts. We distributed two online questionnaires, one for domestic pigs and one for … Read more

Quantitative Risk Assessment of African Swine Fever Introduction into Spain by Legal Import of Live Pigs

Investigation published in Pathogens

African swine fever (ASF) is a devastating infectious disease of pigs that is threatening the global swine industry at present. The current spread of ASF in Europe and its recent incursion into Germany pose a serious risk to Spain, one of the world’s leading pig producers. A quantitative stochastic risk assessment model was developed to estimate the probability of ASF introduction into Spain via the legal import of live pigs. The results suggest a low annual probability of ASF introduction into Spain (1.07 × 10−4), the highest risk being concentrated in Central European countries (German… Read more

Endemia, al fin

El País publish this article

En clase de Enfermedades Infecciosas, uno de los primeros conceptos que explicamos es la diferencia entre enfermedad infecciosa e infección. Sin signos clínicos, hablamos de infección; solo si hay síntomas o lesiones es adecuado hablar de enfermedad infecciosa. Los individuos que albergan patógenos sin padecer alteraciones apreciables se llaman portadores (no portadores asintomáticos, oxímoron innecesario). Otra de las lecciones iniciales es la referente a la acción de las vacunas. En su mayoría, las vacunas protegen frente a la enfermedad. Lo cual no significa que impidan siempre y por comple… Read more

Trans-species transmission of Brucellae among ruminants hampering brucellosis control efforts in Egypt

Journal of Applied Microbiology publish this investigation article

This study aimed to identify the genotypic fingerprinting of B. melitensis biovar 3 isolates from ruminants in Kafr El-Sheikh, Egypt, to compare with other peers globally, and to highlight the epidemiology and potential causes of brucellosis control failure. A multilocus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA 16) was carried out on 41 B. melitensis bv3 isolates, 31 from the preferential hosts (28 sheep and three goats), and ten from atypical hosts (nine cattle and one buffalo), identified by bacteriological and molecular techniques. MLVA-16 analysis revealed 19 genotypes with nine as … Read more
