Risk Factors for Salmonella Detection in Commercial Layer Flocks in Spain

Investigation article published in Animals

Foodborne salmonellosis remains one of the top zoonotic diseases affecting public health worldwide, and its incidence has remained stable in the last years in the European Union (EU) triggering questions on the usefulness of currently available measures to prevent its occurrence. A main focus of Salmonella national control programs is monitoring the presence of the bacteria in animal reservoirs, especially in poultry, and for this reason, thousands of samples are collected every year in poultry farms in EU countries, but the importance of certain factors in the probability of detecting Salmone… Read more

npj Antimircobials and Resistance

Profile and resistance levels of 136 integron resistance genes

Investigation published in npj Antimircobials and Resistance

Integrons have played a major role in the rise and spread of multidrug resistance in Gram-negative pathogens and are nowadays commonplace among clinical isolates. These platforms capture, stockpile, and modulate the expression of more than 170 antimicrobial resistance cassettes (ARCs) against most clinically-relevant antibiotics. Despite their importance, our knowledge on their profile and resistance levels is patchy, because data is scattered in the literature, often reported in different genetic backgrounds and sometimes extrapolated from sequence similarity alone. Here we have generated a c… Read more

El laboratorio de la oveja ‘Dolly’ crea pollos resistentes a la gripe aviar con edición genética

Interview in Salud y Bienestar of El País

Víctor Briones, investigador del Centro de Vigilancia Sanitaria Veterinaria de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, considera que es “una prueba de concepto interesante”, pero cree que su aplicación solo sería posible “en la avicultura industrial”. Además, recuerda, “los grandes reservorios [de la gripe aviar] son las anátidas [aves, habitualmente migratorias, de la familia de los patos]”… Read more

New insights into the pathogenesis and transmission of Brucella pinnipedialis: systemic infection in two bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)

Investigation article published in Microbiology Spectrum

The emergence of Brucella infections in marine mammals is a growing concern. The present study reports two cases of systemic Brucella pinnipedialis infection detected in bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) pair stranded together in the Cantabrian coast of Spain. Both animals showed systemic lesions associated with the Brucella infection, more severe in the younger dolphin, considered the likely offspring of the other individual. Real-time PCR, bacterial culture, and whole-genome sequencing were used to detect and characterize the Brucella strains involved in both dolphins. The phylogeneti… Read more

A retrospective study of SARS-CoV-2 seroprevalence in dogs and cats in the Community of Madrid, Spain

Frontiers in Microbiology publish this investigation article

To date, susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 infection in domestic animals including cats and dogs has been described. However, it is important to carry out passive surveillance of these animals to be aware of any changes in the outcomes of the disease in these species that may occur. In this study, we have performed a retrospective study in which we analyzed sera (n = 1,640) from random animals: dogs (n = 1,381) and cats (n = 259) belonging to both homes (n = 1,533) and animal protection centers (n = 107) in the Community of Madrid, Spain. Neutralizing antibodies were evaluated between November 2021… Read more

Identification and characterization of colistin resistant bacteria from food-producing animals in Spain. Assessment of its persistance and possible dissemination

PhD Thesis defense by Pedro Miguela Villoldo at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid

Colistin is a cationic polypeptide whose use as antibiotic was withdrawn since the 1970s because of its toxicity, but was reintroduced later in human medicine to treat infections caused by multi-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, being categorised as a "last resort antimicrobial". Colistin has been used in veterinary medicine since its discovery for the treatment of infections in animals, especially post-weaning diarrhoea caused by E. coli in piglets and calves and colibacillosis in poultry. Traditionally, colistin was linked exclusively to chromosome mutations in the two-component systems g… Read more

Quantitative risk assessment of African swine fever introduction into Spain by legal import of swine products

Investigation article published in Research in Veterinary Science

African swine fever (ASF) is currently threatening the global swine industry. Its unstoppable global spread poses a serious risk to Spain, one of the world`s leading producers. Over the past years, there has been an increased global burden of ASF not only in swine but also swine products. Unfortunately, many pigs are not diagnosed before slaughter and their products are used for human consumption. These ASF-contaminated products are only a source for new ASF outbreaks when they are consumed by domestic pigs or wild boar, which may happen either by swill feeding or landfill access. This study p… Read more

Translating eco-evolutionary biology into therapy to tackle antibiotic resistance

Investigation published in Nature reviews. Microbiology

Antibiotic resistance is currently one of the most important public health problems. The golden age of antibiotic discovery ended decades ago, and new approaches are urgently needed. Therefore, preserving the efficacy of the antibiotics currently in use and developing compounds and strategies that specifically target antibiotic-resistant pathogens is critical. The identification of robust trends of antibiotic resistance evolution and of its associated trade-offs, such as collateral sensitivity or fitness costs, is invaluable for the design of rational evolution-based, ecology-based treatment a… Read more
