Emergencia y diseminación de mecanismos de resistencia a antibióticos de último recurso en bacterias humanas, animales y ambientales

PhD Thesis defense by José Francisco Delgado Blas at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


El descubrimiento y desarrollo de los antibióticos revolucionó la medicina moderna, permitiendo el tratamiento de infecciones bacterianas consideradas incurables. La resistencia a los antibióticos es un fenómeno natural, mediante el cual las bacterias son capaces de adaptarse y sobrevivir a la actividad de estos compuestos. Por ello, el uso masivo e indiscriminado de los antibióticos aceleró la emergencia de bacterias multirresistentes, constituyendo actualmente uno de los mayores problemas sanitarios a nivel mundial. Los antibióticos que todavía conservan una elevada efectividad frente a un a… Leer más

Use of Epidemiological Analytic Tools and Molecular Characterization Techniques to Inform Bovine Tuberculosis Eradication Programs

PhD Thesis defense by Pilar Pozo Piñol at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is an infectious disease with a complex epidemiology at the human-animal-environment interface which, despite the application of extensive control measures, is still prevalent in livestock and wildlife in several regions of Spain. The disease, caused by Mycobacterium bovis (and to a lesser extent M. caprae), remains a concern due to its negative impact on animal health and welfare, together with the important consequences for production and animal trade that its presence imposes. Eradication programs of bTB in cattle in Spain are based on a combination of regular test… Leer más

Evaluation of new vaccines against tuberculosis in goats and advances in their immunological diagnosis

PhD Thesis defense by Álvaro Roy Cordero at the VISAVET Centre of the Complutense University of Madrid


Tuberculosis in goats is a zoonotic mycobacteriosis, mainly caused by M. caprae and M. bovis, which leads to important economic losses for the goat producers and may represent a reservoir of tuberculosis for other domestic and wild animal species, as well as humans. At the European level, the active diagnosis of tuberculosis in goats is limited to goat herds coexisting or having epidemiological links with infected cattle or when raw milk and products made from raw milk are intended for human consumption (European Regulation EC 853/2004). However, specific eradication programs have been impleme… Leer más

Evaluación del efecto del lugar de inoculación en los resultados de la prueba de intradermotuberculinización en ganado caprino

Jose Sánchez Cesteros defended this Degree Final Project


The place of inoculation is related to the sensitivity of intradermal tuberculin test in cattle, so much so, that the legislation and procedure manuals strictly specify that it should be carried out at half height in the limit between the anterior and the middle third of the neck. However, the usual practice in goats is to use the scapula zone as indicated by some specific goat tuberculosis programmes. The effect of the inoculation place in the intradermal test has been studied by comparing the increase in skin-fold thickness, the number of test reactors and the detection of clinical signs in … Leer más

Detección y caracterización de Campylobacter spp. en muestras de alimentos destinados a consumo humano

Degree Final Project defended by Mª del Pilar Gómez Martínez


Campylobacteriosis is the main foodborne zoonosis worldwide and in Europe. It is caused by bacteria of the genus Campylobacter, especially Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli, with the first one being the main cause of human gastroenteritis. The main route of transmission is food, mainly after consumption of contaminated food, and the most common source of human infection is usually contaminated and undercooked chicken meat. Campylobacteriosis is a diarrheal disease that is usually self-limiting, although it can occasionally trigger serious complications such as the Guillain-Barré Synd… Leer más

Detección del virus de la Hepatitits E en camelidos

Laura Chacón Carrascosa defended this Degree Final Project


Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a single-stranded RNA virus that belongs to the Hepeviridae family. It is the leading cause of viral hepatitis in the world, affecting 20 million people each year according to the WHO. Today up to 8 genotypes are distinguished, which is found according to their epidemiology, host, geographic distribution, pathogenesis, etc. In developing regions, genotypes 1 and 2, exclusive to humans, are the most common, being transmitted through the faecal-oral route through contaminated water. On the other hand, in developed regions the main genotypes are zoonotics, 3 and 4, whic… Leer más

Epidemiological and molecular analysis of the main pathogens of Apis mellifera and their importance in triggering colony losses

Sandra Barroso Arévalo defended the PhD Thesis at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid


The number of honey bees has been in constant and progressive decline since the second half of the twentieth century. These insects play a key role as pollinators and in the maintenance of global biodiversity. Colony losses include two kind of phenomena. The first one is “Colony collapse disorder” (CCD), which consists of a rapid decrease in bee population, but honey/breeding/pollen stores remain adequate and bees do not show disease symptoms. The second one is winter mortality after wintering. In addition to the impact on the beekeeping sector, colony losses also affect food production, envir… Leer más
