Harmonisation of in-silico next-generation sequencing based methods for diagnostics and surveillance

Scientific reports publish this investigation article


Improvements in cost and speed of next generation sequencing (NGS) have provided a new pathway for delivering disease diagnosis, molecular typing, and detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Numerous published methods and protocols exist, but a lack of harmonisation has hampered meaningful comparisons between results produced by different methods/protocols vital for global genomic diagnostics and surveillance. As an exemplar, this study evaluated the sensitivity and specificity of five well-established in-silico AMR detection software where the genotype results produced from running a pan… Read more

Hidden dissemination of carbapenem-susceptible OXA-48-producing Proteus mirabilis

Investigation published in The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy


Objectives: To detect a potential hidden dissemination of the blaOXA-48 gene among Proteus mirabilis isolates obtained from a single centre. Methods: P. mirabilis from diverse clinical samples presenting an ESBL phenotype or obtained from blood cultured from 2017 to 2019 were evaluated. Bacterial identification was performed using MALDI-TOF MS. MICs were determined using International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard microdilution and interpreted following EUCAST guidelines. WGS was performed using both short- and long-read technologies and assemblies were done using Unicycler.… Read more

The Omicron (B.1.1.529) SARS-CoV-2 variant of concern also affects companion animals

Investigation article published in Frontiers in veterinary science


The emergence of the Omicron variant (B.1. 1.529) has brought with it an increase in the incidence of SARS-CoV-2 disease. However, there is hardly any data on its incidence in companion animals. We have detected the presence of this new variant in domestic animals (dogs and cats) living with infected owners in Spain. None of the RT-qPCR positive animals (10.13%) presented any clinical signs and the viral loads detected were low. In addition, the shedding of viral RNA lasted a short period of time in the positive animals. Infection with this variant of concern (VOC) was confirmed by RT-qPCR and… Read more

The expression of aminoglycoside resistance genes in integron cassettes is not controlled by riboswitches

Nucleic Acids Research publish this investigation article


Regulation of gene expression is a key factor influencing the success of antimicrobial resistance determinants. A variety of determinants conferring resistance against aminoglycosides (Ag) are commonly found in clinically relevant bacteria, but whether their expression is regulated or not is controversial. The expression of several Ag resistance genes has been reported to be controlled by a riboswitch mechanism encoded in a conserved sequence. Yet this sequence corresponds to the integration site of an integron, a genetic platform that recruits genes of different functions, making the presence… Read more

VISAVET will not continue the SEVEMUR Veterinary Service of Madrid and summarises its management in 15 years


The VISAVET Health Surveillance Center of the Complutense University of Madrid summarises the management in the SEVEMUR Emergency Veterinary Service of the Madrid City Council, during the period that it was awarded this public tender. Fifteen years of uninterrupted activity, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, carried out by veterinary professionals who travel through the different districts of the city of Madrid where the presence of sick or injured, lost or abandoned animals on public roads was reported. or in a helpless situation. During this time, countless experiences and very varied functions within the development of the three main activities of the service: veterinary assistance, research and outreach.… Read more
