Revisiting area risk classification of visceral leishmaniasis in Brazil

Investigation article published in BMC infectious diseases


Background: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a neglected tropical disease of public health relevance in Brazil. To prioritize disease control measures, the Secretaria de Vigilância em Saúde of Brazil’s Ministry of Health (SVS/MH) uses retrospective human case counts from VL surveillance data to inform a municipality-based risk classification. In this study, we compared the underlying VL risk, using a spatiotemporal explicit Bayesian hierarchical model (BHM), with the risk classification currently in use by the Brazil’s Ministry of Health. We aim to assess how well the current risk classes captur… Read more

Validation of a new serological assay for the identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex-specific antibodies in pigs and wild boar

Investigation published in Preventive Veterinary Medicine


Background and objectives Animal tuberculosis (TB) is a multi-host disease involving a wide variety of domestic and wild mammals and causing a significant economic burden and sanitary problems. Wild boar and domestic pigs (Sus scrofa) are indicators of the circulation of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) and can play a role in its maintenance. The proper diagnosis of MTC contact in these species is, therefore, a key factor as regards controlling TB. The objective of the current study is to evaluate the diagnostic performance of the protein complex P22 as a candidate for use in an i… Read more

Ancient Rome and the zoonoses

New article published in Revista Complutense de Ciencias Veterinarias


Ancient Rome was an unhealthy and annoying city, far from our sound idea about it, associated to palaces, temples and statues. Daily life used to take place in a crowded environment, where malnutrition and poverty thrived. Direct or indirect fecal contamination from humans and animals of water and food was highly probable. Spills and pollution of watercourses and reservoirs with filth and carrion occurred often, this favoring pathogens and vectors. The lack of appropriate cleansing of streets and sewers, and the re… Read more

Application of quantitative analytic methods for the epidemiological study of zoonotic diseases

PhD Thesis defense by Mª Luisa de la Cruz Conty at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


The present doctoral thesis explored the usefulness of the application of quantitative analytic methods for the study of the epidemiology of diseases of relevance in animal and public health. Most epidemiological studies are based on the classification of individuals from a given population as infected or uninfected based on the results obtained in a diagnostic test. However, often the accuracy of the test is not formally evaluated, or estimates obtained in a different (and non-applicable) context are merely extrapolated, what can lead to important biases. In this thesis, Bayesian models… Read more

Immunoproteomic characterization of protein derivatives from Mycobacterium bovis, Mycobacterium avium (subspecies avium and paratuberculosis) and Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis. Application in diagnosis

PhD Thesis defense by Jose Antonio Infantes Lorenzo at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


Animal tuberculosis is a zoonotic infection caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC), especially M. bovis and M. caprae. It represents an important health problem, in humans, domestic animals and wildlife. For this reason, in the European Union, cattle are subject to an eradication programme, based on " test-and slaughter" strategies, which implies the removal of animals that react positively to diagnostic tests. The official diagnostic tests are based on the cell immune response against the bovine tuberculin or PPDb. This is a purified protein derivative (PPD) prepar… Read more
