Evaluación de la resistencia antimicrobiana en Salmonella y Escherichia coli en alimentos en puestos de control fronterizo de España (2021-2023)

Elena Fernández Cabrera defended this presentation at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid in order to obtain the Master of Research

Escherichia coli y Salmonella son dos microorganismos pertenecientes a la familia Enterobacteriaceae que forman parte de la microbiota intestinal comensal de la mayoría de mamíferos, aunque también existen cepas patógenas capaces de causar infecciones. Estas bacterias pueden presentar una gran diversidad de mecanismos de resistencia antimicrobiana, siendo la producción de betalactamasas de espectro extendido (BLEEs) y betalactamasas tipo AmpC los más comunes y, en menor medida, las carbapenemasas, que a su vez es el mecanismo más preocupante. Estas enzimas confieren resistencia a los betalactá… Read more

New perspectives in the study of mayor emerging diseases in cetaceans: advances in the understanding of Herpesviruses, Morbilliviruses and Brucella

PhD Thesis defense by Ignacio Vargas Castro at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid

The importance of cetacean conservation in scientific research is increasingly prominent, giving rise to growing global concern due to the extinction threat faced by several cetacean species. The protection and preservation of these animals benefit the entire marine ecosystem, as they are considered umbrella species. Furthermore, their charisma and popularity make them flagship species, playing a significant role in raising awareness and promoting conservation among the general public. Additionally, they serve a crucial function as sentinels of ocean health. On the other hand, the "One Heal… Read more

Study of factors affecting the diagnostic performance of cellular and humoral-based techniques for caprine tuberculosis

PhD Thesis defense by Javier Ortega Martín at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid

Caprine tuberculosis (TB) is a zoonotic mycobacteriosis caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), mainly M. caprae and M. bovis. Due to its health and economic impact, this disease is subject to surveillance and eradication programs. In Spain, certain regions have been established specific eradication programs for those caprine herds epidemiologically related to cattle herds. In addition, caprine TB eradication programs have been implemented in some Autonomous Communities, also included in a specific manual of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Spain i… Read more

Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in domestic goats in Southern Spain

Investigation published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine

Tuberculosis (TB) is a zoonotic infectious disease caused by bacteria belonging to the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC), which can affect a wide variety of domestic and wild animal species. Although the role of goats as a reservoir of MTC bacteria has been evidenced, information about the circulation of MTC strains in this species is still very scarce. The aim of the present study was to determine the seroprevalence, spatial distribution, risk factors and MTC spoligotypes circulating in goats from Andalusia (Southern Spain), the Spanish region with the largest goat census and a hotspot… Read more
