Modelo experimental para Streptococcus suis: evaluación comparativa de dos técnicas dirigidas a la determinación de la presencia del patógeno en tejidos

Degree Final Project defended by Andrea Brigidano Lopez


Streptococcus suis (S. suis) es uno de los patógenos más relevantes en sanidad animal a los que se enfrenta actualmente el sector porcino a nivel mundial. Además, tiene un carácter zoonótico de importancia para la salud pública. Sin embargo, las estrategias disponibles para su control son limitadas, especialmente en lo referido a la disponibilidad de vacunas comerciales, debido a la ausencia de inmunidad cruzada asociado a su gran variabilidad antigénica. Es por ello por lo que la utilización de modelos animales para el estudio de candidatos vacunales y el empleo de métodos diagnósticos sensib… Leer más

Evaluación de la serología para el diagnóstico de la tuberculosis en cérvidos

Eva Barrio Calvo defended this Degree Final Project


Fundamento y objetivo: Los cérvidos son reservorios de la tuberculosis (TB) para el ganado doméstico. La vigilancia de TB en cérvidos se basa sobre todo en el examen de lesiones compatibles con tuberculosis (LCT), cultivo e intradermotuberculinización (IDTB), aunque estas pruebas tienen ciertas limitaciones. Además, el Reglamento Delegado (UE) 2020/688 no especifica la prueba diagnóstica requerida para el movimiento de cérvidos dentro de la Unión Europea. Para este fin, es necesario una prueba rápida y coste-efectiva, entre las que se encuentran las pruebas de detección de anticuerpos. El obje… Leer más

Hepatitis E in the pig production chain: from farm to fork

PhD Thesis defense by Alejandro Navarro Gómez at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


Hepatitis E (HE) is one of the main acute viral hepatitis worldwide, and can represent an important problem in Public Health. The virus responsible for this disease is the hepatitis E virus (HEV), belonging to the Hepeviridae family. To date, 8 different genotypes of HEV are known. The genotypes that affect humans are genotypes 1-4, although the possible zoonotic potential of genotypes 5, 7 and 8 has been described. In developed countries, the causes of HE in humans are genotype 3 and 4, generally associated with the consumption of contaminated and under cooked food. The main animal reservoir … Leer más

Zoonosis in wild ruminants and wild boars in the Region of Madrid

Silvia Úbeda Jiménez defended this Degree Final Project


Los patógenos infecciosos presentes en la fauna silvestre han adquirido una importancia creciente en nuestra sociedad ya que tienen un impacto trascendente sobre la Salud Pública por su capacidad de transmitirse a los humanos, lo que se conoce como zoonosis, y por ello es necesario llevar una adecuada vigilancia y control de estas enfermedades. El objetivo de este estudio es determinar la prevalencia de diferentes patógenos zoonósicos de relevancia en rumiantes salvajes y jabalíes en la Comunidad de Madrid durante el año 2021, enmarcados en el sistema de Vigilancia de fauna silvestre de esta r… Leer más

Evaluación del efecto de la administración parenteral de AINEs y glucocoticoides en las pruebas de diagnóstico oficial de tuberculosis bovina en un modelo experimental caprino

Carlos Velasco Reinaldos defended this Degree Final Project


El rendimiento de las pruebas de diagnóstico de la tuberculosis (TB) en los rumiantes domésticos se puede ver afectado por diferentes factores. El objetivo del presente estudio fue evaluar si la aplicación fraudulenta vía parenteral de ketoprofeno (antiinflamatorio no esteroideo o AINE) o de dexametasona (glucocorticoide) en el ganado puede provocar interferencias en la prueba de diagnóstico oficial, la intradermotuberculinización (IDTB). El modelo animal experimental elegido para el estudio fue el caprino. Se seleccionaron aleatoriamente 90 animales de un rebaño de aptitud lechera con una pr… Leer más

Histopathological and immunohistochemical study of premature senescence of cells in forensic cases of dogs starvation due to animal abuse

Degree Final Project defended by Esther Vázquez Fernández


Animal abuse is of mayor concern in today`s society, with an increasing number of reported cases. Violence towards animals is considered an additional factor of interpersonal violence, making essential to advance in the field of forensic veterinary pathology. Starvation, the involuntary loss of body mass, is one of the main causes of death in cases of animal abuse. Starvation is due to a catabolic state that induce atrophy in most organs. However, the mechanism beyond atrophy is not fully understood. The aim of this research is to retrospectively study a series of dog forensic cases diagnosed … Leer más

Puesta a punto y optimización de PCR a tiempo real para Vibrio spp.

Degree Final Project defended by Andrea Marcos Baqueiro


Aquaculture is a growing sector whose aim is the production of aquatic organisms such as animals and plants. Currently, infectious diseases are a great challenge for this sector. Therefore, it is necessary not only to implement prophylactic measures, but also to have diagnostic methods to obtain reliable results in a short period of time and at low cost. Among the most relevant pathogens in health surveillance in aquaculture, some species such as Vibrio alginolyticus, Vibrio anguillarum and Vibrio harvey stand out for representing a serious problem when it comes to their detection and precise … Leer más

Detection of bacteria of the genus Rickettsia in ticks and development of a high resolution melting technique

Degree Final Project defended by Gonzalo Pérez Serrano


Ricekttsioses are a group of emerging zoonotic pathologies caused by bacteria of the genus Rickettsia. These bacteria are Gram-negative, intracellular bacillococci, and the diseases they produce are transmitted to vertebrates by vectors such as ticks, mites, fleas and lice. Due to their highly conserved genome, there are limitations in the identification of the different species of rickettsiae. In this work, the molecular detection of bacteria of the genus Rickettsia in ticks has been carried out by performing conventional PCR and sequencing of the ompA and ompB genes, which is a laborious and… Leer más

New tools to prevent the endemism of bluetongue

Cecilia Aguilar Vega defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


Bluetongue is a transboundary arboviral disease transmitted mainly by species of the genus Culicoides. It affects essentially ruminants and has a great socioeconomic and animal health impact in areas where is present. Hence, it is a notifiable disease for the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). At the end of the 20th century, it was considered an exotic disease in Europe, however, since 1998 there has been an incessant introduction and subsequent circulation of different strains of the bluetongue virus (BTV), the etiological agent of the disease. Its importance for the livestock indust… Leer más

Advances in diving pathophysiology knowledge in sea turtles: The discovery of decompression sickness

Daniel García Párraga defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


Decompression sickness (DCS), clinically diagnosed by reversal of symptoms after recompression treatment, has never been reported in breath hold divers, despite the predictable occurrence in their tissues when nitrogen stresses high enough to lead to bubble formation and lesions based on studies in terrestrial experimental models. In marine mammals, lesions compatible with DCS were described in post mortem studies, in cases where altered diving behavior is assumed because of exposure to high-powered underwater acoustic sources (e.g., active military sonar) and in cases of animals accidentally … Leer más
