Desarrollo y puesta a punto de una técnica de base inmunológica para la detección conjunta de ricina y aglutinina

Presentation by Virginia Colmena García to obtain the Master in Disaster Management


La ricina es una de las toxinas más potentes conocidas, que se encuentra en la semilla del ricino (Ricinus communis). El Centro para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades de Estados Unidos (CDC) la clasifica como posible arma biológica. Existen diferentes métodos para la detección de esta proteína, siendo la técnica inmunológica ELISA, especialmente el ELISA tipo sándwich, la que está considerada como la técnica más robusta para su análisis, ya que es sensible, específica, con límites de detección de picogramos y fácil de realizar. No obstante, el reto está en poder diferenciar la ricina … Leer más

Evaluation of the health status of the main aquaculture species in Papua New Guinea

PhD Thesis defense by Ruth García Gómez at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


The aquaculture sector has been strongly promoted y developed in a technically feasible, economically viable y long-term sustainable way in the Pacific Region for more than two decades. Numerous international, intergovernmental, regional agencies y programs have focused their economic y human efforts on the sustainable development of this sub-sector (within the fisheries sector) in the Pacific, with limited results y not many successful stories. The Oceania region remains the world`s least developed region in the world`s aquaculture sector, with some exceptions such as Australia y New Zealy, f… Leer más

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… Leer más

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… Leer más

Caracterización y detección genética de Enterobacterias resistentes a colistina en muestras de origen animal

Marta Valero Lorenzo defended this Degree Final Project


Justification. Colistin resistance poses a major Public Health concern. The first description of a plasmid mediated gene codifying for colistin resistance took place in 2015, since this year eight genes have been described. Those genes codify for colistin resistance by modifications in Lipid A, target of this antimicrobial in the bacterial cell wall. As a plasmid mediated genes, could imply horizontal transmission of resistance. Besides, colistin classification as “critically important antibiotic for human medicine” by the WHO, and the growth of colistin resistance, stablish the need to develo… Leer más

Prevalencia de la Hepatitis E en cerdo blanco en España

Degree Final Project defended by Sara Carral Irijoa


El virus de la hepatitis E (HEV) es responsable de casos, endémicos y epidémicos, de hepatitis aguda en humanos en todo el mundo. En países en desarrollo la transmisión es fundamentalmente a partir del consumo de agua contaminada. En países desarrollados la hepatitis E se considera una enfermedad zoonótica emergente, siendo el consumo de alimentos contaminados, principalmente del cerdo, la principal fuente de infección. Es un virus ARN, clasificado en la familia Hepeviridae, que incluye 7 genotipos, 4 principales (1-4), y un octavo genotipo que está propuesto. Los genotipos 1 y 2 sólo afectan … Leer más
