Evaluation of PCR assays for Campylobacter fetus detection and discrimination between C. fetus subspecies in bovine preputial wash samples

Investigation article published in Theriogenology


Campylobacter fetus is a zoonotic pathogen found in cattle, in which it is one of the main causes of infectious infertility. Most diagnostic laboratories use PCR as quick easy tool for C. fetus identification. However, there is no standardized PCR assay for C. fetus detection and subspecies differentiation, hindering the comparison of results. In this study, we evaluated selected PCR assays targeting the 16S rRNA, gyrB, cpn60, cstA, cdtB and nahE genes for C. fetus identification and ISCfe1, sapB2, parA and virB11 for subspecies differentiation. Analytical sensitivity and specificity were asse… Read more

The spatial ecology of red deer under different land use and management scenarios: Protected areas, mixed farms and fenced hunting estates

Investigation article published in Science of the total environment


The knowledge regarding the spatial ecology of red deer (Cervus elaphus) in different environments is crucial if effective management actions are to be designed. However, this knowledge continues to be scarce in the complex contexts of mixed land use and management circumstances. This study describes the spatial ecology of red deer monitored using GPS collars in Mediterranean ecosystems of South-Central Spain, considering the effect of individual and seasonal (food shortage period, rut, hunting season and food abundance period) factors on different land use and management scenarios, namely pro… Read more

Conjugation Inhibitors Effectively Prevent Plasmid Transmission in Natural Environments

Investigation article published in MBio


Plasmid conjugation is a major route for the spread of antibiotic resistance genes. Inhibiting conjugation has been proposed as a feasible strategy to stop or delay the propagation of antibiotic resistance genes. Several compounds have been shown to be conjugation inhibitors in vitro, specifically targeting the plasmid horizontal transfer machinery. However, the in vivo efficiency and the applicability of these compounds to clinical and environmental settings remained untested. Here we show that the synthetic fatty acid 2-hexadecynoic acid (2-HDA), when used as a fish food supplement, lowers t… Read more

Assigning Defined Daily/Course Doses for Antimicrobials in Turkeys to Enable a Cross-Country Quantification and Comparison of Antimicrobial Use

Antibiotics publish this investigation article


Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) threatens our public health and is mainly driven by antimicrobial usage (AMU). For this reason the World Health Organization calls for detailed monitoring of AMU over all animal sectors involved. Therefore, we aimed to quantify AMU on turkey farms. First, turkey-specific Defined Daily Dose (DDDturkey) was determined. These were compared to the broiler alternative from the European Surveillance of Veterinary Antimicrobial Consumption (DDDvet), that mention DDDvet as a proxy for other poultry species. DDDturkey ranged from being 81.5% smaller to 48.5% larger compar… Read more

Evaluation of a diet with antioxidant properties in oxidative stress and inflammation markers in long-stay dogs housed in an animal protection center

Profesión Veterinaria publish this article


Animal shelter and protection centers are establishments managed by public or private entities, whose objective is to collect and temporarily care for lost, abandoned or stray dogs and cats, until their recovery by the owners, their delivery for adoption or their euthanasia as last resource. Law 4/2016 on the Protection of Companion Animals of the Regional Government of Madrid (Spain) establishes, among other aspects, the obligations of animal protection centers with respect to animals in foster care, being the cor… Read more

Equine Herpesvirus 1. Trojan Horse in the 2021 rhinopneumonitis outbreak

New article published in Profesión Veterinaria


At the end of February and throughout the month of March, multiple cases of infection with Equine Herpesvirus type 1 (Equine herpesvirus 1, EHV-1) were confirmed in Spain and several European countries in horses that had participated in show jumping competitions in Spain. and Portugal. EHV-1 infection is endemic in most horse populations throughout the world, causing severe economic losses associated with outbreaks of respiratory disease, miscarriages, neonatal deaths, and myeloencephalopathy. The effects of… Read more
