Neuropathological lesions in intravenous BCG-stimulated K18-hACE2 mice challenged with SARS-CoV-2

Investigation article published in Veterinary Research

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, questions emerged about the potential effects of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine on the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 infection, including the neurodegenerative diseases it may contribute to. To explore this, an experimental study was carried out in BCG-stimulated and non-stimulated k18-hACE2 mice challenged with SARS-CoV-2. Viral loads in tissues determined by RT-qPCR, histopathology in brain and lungs, immunohistochemical study in brain (IHC) as well as mortality rates, clinical signs and plasma inflammatory and coagulation bi… Read more

Patología y causas de varamiento en tortugas marinas de la Comunidad Valenciana

PhD Thesis defense by José Luis Crespo Picazo at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid

The aim of this thesis is to apply epidemiological surveillance as a fundamental tool to learn about the occurrence of diseases and causes of death in a population in a given area, to monitor them over time and to propase control or mitigation strategies in management plans. In the case of the Valencian Community, as in many other regions at national and international level, a complete study of the pathologies and causes of death of sea turtles has not yet been carried out. This thesis is an ordered, systematic and complete study of the sea turtles that appeared in the Valencian Community duri… Read more

Editorial: Pathogen transmission at the domestic-wildlife interface: a growing challenge that requires integrated solutions

Frontiers in veterinary science publish this investigation article

Wildlife has coexisted with domestic animals in dynamic systems over thousands of years. Domestic-wildlife interfaces are intricate, encompassing physical spaces where wild and domestic species overlap and potentially interact, posing risks of pathogen transmission. The nature of this interface has changed over time and across landscapes, leading to continuous emergence of different conflicts. In addition, human processes that alter ecosystems have led to more interconnected interfaces and increased opportunities for the emergence and spread of shared pathogens (1). The main goal of this Rese… Read more

Neurobrucellosis (Brucella ceti) in striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba): Immunohistochemical studies on immune response and neuroinflammation

Investigation published in Veterinary Pathology

Neurobrucellosis is a shared condition of cetaceans and humans. However, the pathogenesis and immune response in cetacean neurobrucellosis has not been extensively studied. In this multicentric investigation, 21 striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba) neurobrucellosis (Brucella ceti) cases diagnosed over a 10-year period (2012-2022) were retrospectively evaluated. For each case, morphological changes were assessed by evaluating 21 histological parameters. Furthermore, the immunohistochemical expression of Brucella antigen, glial fibrillary acid protein (GFAP), and a selection of inflammatory c… Read more

Leishmaniosis: Un reto global

Brote de leishmaniosis en Madrid ¿Qué hay de nuevo, viejo?

Oral communication in Leishmaniosis: Un reto global

El reservorio principal de la leishmaniosis en el área mediterránea es el perro y el agente etiológico Leishmania infantum. Sin embargo, en el mayor brote de leishmaniosis humana notificado en Europa, en la Comunidad de Madrid, se demostró que los lepóridos silvestres son reservorios competentes del parásito… Read more

Non-invasive surveillance of shared pathogens in the Eurasian brown bear (Ursus arctos) human interface

Investigation article published in One Health

Multi-host communities are perfect scenarios for the emergence and spread of pathogens, threatening the recovery of endangered, isolated, or inbred populations, such as the brown bear (Ursus arctos) in northwestern Spain. The population recovery in recent years has forced bears to occupy highly anthropized areas, increasing their interaction with human and domestic animals, with potential consequences for global health. During 2022-2023 a survey of parasites, bacteria and viruses shared between wildlife, domestic animals and humans was performed in this population using non-invasive surveillan… Read more

Detection of equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) in urine samples during outbreaks of equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy

Equine veterinary journal publish this investigation article

Background: Real-time PCR is the diagnostic technique of choice for the diagnosis and control of equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) in an outbreak setting. The presence of EHV-1 in nasal swabs (NS), whole blood, brain and spinal cord samples has been extensively described; however, there are no reports on the excretion of EHV-1 in urine, its DNA detection patterns, and the role of urine in viral spread during an outbreak. Objectives: To determine the presence of EHV-1 DNA in urine during natural infection and to compare the DNA detection patterns of EHV-1 in urine, buffy coat (BC) and NS. Study de… Read more
