Asociación entre resistencia a antibióticos y factores del hospedador y la bacteria en patógenos de transmisión alimentaria

Degree Final Project defended by María Juez García


Salmonellosis is one of the main foodborne zoonosis worldwide and also in the European Union. It is caused by Salmonella enterica subesp. enterica, that can be divided in over 2,500 serotypes. Salmonella is a very ubiquitous bacteria that is also very resistant to a wide range of environmental conditions. Its importance is further complicated by the increasing problem of antimicrobial resistance. Among the large variety of food products associated with its transmission, egg and egg products are among the most frequently reported sources of infection. Salmonellosis mainly leads to gastrointesti… Leer más

Estudio sobre el efecto de los corticoides y la presensibilización con tuberculina empleados con fine fraudulentos en la prueba de intradermotuberculinización (IDTB)

Abel Díaz Castillo defended this Degree Final Project


En el diagnóstico de la tuberculosis (TB) en rumiantes domésticos influyen factores inmunológicos y técnicos. En el presente estudio se evaluaron dos factores que podrían interferir en el mismo al utilizarse con fines fraudulentos, pudiendo afectar al avance del programa de erradicación. Por ello, los resultados obtenidos podrían servir para la mejora del programa y alcanzar el objetivo de erradicación de la enfermedad. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar si la presensibilización con tuberculina, así como la aplicación de corticoides a nivel local tienen efecto sobre la prueba de int… Leer más

Real-time RT-PCR Bornavirus type 1 (BDV-1) detection

Degree Final Project defended by Lucía Aroca Lara


Bornavirus (BDV) is the causative agent of Borna disease (BD). Typically, it is described as a chronic, progressive, non-suppurative meningoencephalomyelitis which mainly affects horses and sheep, causing behavioural and neurological alterations. Currently, the possible zoonotic aspect of BD is very controversial. BD diagnosis is very challenging. Clinical diagnosis is insufficient by itself as there are many differential diagnoses of pathogens which cause similar clinical signs in horses. So far, no diagnostic method has enough sensitivity and specificity to be used, on its own, in a BD cl… Leer más

Detección molecular de Trypanosoma cruzi en pelo de ratón infectado experimentalmente

Degree Final Project defended by Silvia Díaz Franchy


Trypanosoma cruzi es el parásito protozoo causante de la enfermedad de Chagas, que afecta entre 6 y 8 millones de personas. Es una enfermedad transmitida principalmente por insectos de la familia Reduviidae, aunque también se puede transmitir por vía oral, mediante transfusiones o vía congénita. Se trata de una enfermedad infradiagnosticada en Europa, siendo España el país europeo con mayor número de personas afectadas por T. cruzi. En los países endémicos los animales salvajes suponen uno de los principales reservorios, haciendo el manejo y obtención de muestras difícil. Por tanto, se ha cons… Leer más

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
