Evaluation of the immunogenicity and efficacy of BCG and MTBVAC vaccines using a natural transmission model of tuberculosis

Veterinary Research publish this investigation article


Effective vaccines against tuberculosis (TB) are needed in order to prevent TB transmission in human and animal populations. Evaluation of TB vaccines may be facilitated by using reliable animal models that mimic host pathophysiology and natural transmission of the disease as closely as possible. In this study, we evaluated the immunogenicity and efficacy of two attenuated vaccines, BCG and MTBVAC, after each was given to 17 goats (2 months old) and then exposed for 9 months to goats infected with M. caprae. In general, MTBVAC-vaccinated goats showed higher interferon-gamma release than BCG va… Read more

Risk of African swine fever virus introduction into the United States through smuggling of pork in air passenger luggage

Investigation published in Scientific reports


African swine fever causes substantial economic losses in the swine industry in affected countries. Traditionally confined to Africa with only occasional incursions into other regions, ASF began spreading into Caucasian countries and Eastern Europe in 2007, followed by Western Europe and Asia in 2018. Such a dramatic change in the global epidemiology of ASF has resulted in concerns that the disease may continue to spread into disease-free regions such as the US. In this study, we estimated the risk of introduction of ASF virus into the US through smuggling of pork in air passenger luggage. Res… Read more

Antibiotiques: succès et déceptions

Résistance aux antibiotiques: humains, animaux et environnement

Conference in Antibiotiques: succès et déceptions


La résistance aux antibiotiques est, comme confirmée par l’OMS et l’ONU, la menace sanitaire actuelle la plus grave du monde. Bien qu’on utilise des antibiotiques depuis les années 30, les bactéries s’entrainent déjà depuis des millions d’années à résister contre elles-mêmes dans la nature, ce qui explique qu’elles ont développé des stratégies de résistance très efficientes. En fait, les bactéries, contrairement au reste des êtres vivants de la Terre, peuvent s’échanger entre elles des gènes responsables de divers mécanismes de résistance par un processus appelé « Transfert Horizontal des… Read more

Tuberculosis vaccination sequence effect on protection in wild boar

Comparative Immunology, Microbiology and Infectious Diseases publish this investigation article


The Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa) is a reservoir for tuberculosis (TB) in which vaccination is a valuable tool for control. We evaluated the protection and immune response achieved by homologous and heterologous regimes administering BCG and heat-inactivated Mycobacterium bovis (IV). Twenty-one wild boar piglets were randomly allocated in five groups: Control, homologous BCG, homologous IV, heterologous IV-BCG, heterologous BCG-IV. Significant 67% and 66% total lesion score reductions were detected in homologous IV (IVx2) and heterologous IV-BCG groups when compared with Control group (F4,16… Read more

Aborto ovino causado por Salmonella Abortusovis (aborto paratifoide)

New article published in Albèitar Portugal


Numa exploração de ovinos dependendo da aptidão dos animais, as principais fontes de lucro são a venda dos borregos e produção de leite, logo uma boa fertilidade é um fator chave para garantir a produtividade e rentabilidade do negócio. Neste âmbito, é essencial prevenir e controlar os abortos para garantirmos um parto e borregos saudáveis. A Salmonella Abortusovis é considerada uma das principais causas de abortos infeciosos, a seguir à Chlamydia abortus em muitos países europeus. Este artigo pretende fazer uma re… Read more

Mapping changes in the spatiotemporal distribution of lumpy skin disease virus

Investigation article published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases


Lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV) is an infectious disease of cattle transmitted by arthropod vectors which results in substantial economic losses due to impact on production efficiency and profitability, and represents an emerging threat to international trade of livestock products and live animals. Since 2015, the disease has spread into the Northern Hemisphere including Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation and the Balkans. The rapid expansion of LSDV in those regions represented the emergence of the virus in more temperate regions than those in which LSDV traditionally occurred. The… Read more
