Animal tuberculosis: the (never)ending story?

New article published in Albéitar

In spite of the efforts invested for eradication of animal tuberculosis in Spain, there are still areas in which the disease persists. Here we summarize the re­sults of the Eratub project (Universidad de Leon-Universidad Complutense) regarding the characterization of the problems hampering the progress of the tuberculosis eradication programs in both areas of high and low preva­lence in Spain. The objectives achieved include estimating the performance of diagnostic tests at the herd and individual level in different situations, the assessment of the efficacy of new tools for the diagnosis and … Read more

Editorial: Advancing the development and implementation of regional, national tuberculosis control programs in livestock in Africa, Asia, and Latin America

Investigation article published in Frontiers in veterinary science

Tuberculosis in livestock caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTb) complex is a notifiable zoonotic animal disease (1), which has been eradicated or held to very low prevalence levels in many high-income economies. Successful campaigns were all build on a very strict test-and-slaughter strategy using the tuberculin PPD skin tests as diagnostic tool. However, tuberculosis in livestock remains endemic in most Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). This not only represents a threat to public health in those countries but also places a significant burden on their economies due… Read more

Genome-wide association reveals host-specific genomic traits in Escherichia coli

BMC Biology publish this investigation article

Escherichia coli is an opportunistic pathogen that can colonize or infect various host species. There is a significant gap in our understanding to what extent genetic lineages of E. coli are adapted or restricted to specific hosts. In addition, genomic determinants underlying such host specificity are unknown.By analyzing a randomly sampled collection of 1198 whole-genome sequenced E. coli isolates from four countries (Germany, UK, Spain, and Vietnam), obtained from five host species (human, pig, cattle, chicken, and wild boar) over 16 years, from both healthy and diseased hosts, we demonstrat… Read more
