Nuevas herramientas mejoran el diagnóstico de tuberculosis en contextos de alta prevalencia

La investigaciones muestran la serología como una técnica auxiliar en el diagnóstico de la tuberculosis bovina

Un consorcio español de investigación sobre la tuberculosis integrado por VISAVET, ISCIII, SaBio-IREC, SERIDA y NEIKER evaluó recientemente la sensibilidad de la prueba de tuberculina, dos ensayos de interferón gamma y tres técnicas diferentes de detección de anticuerpos para el diagnóstico de tuberculosis bovina en un rebaño con alta prevalencia de infección por M. bovis. Los resultados se publicaron recientemente en Research in Veterinary Science. Las técnicas de detección de anticuerpos produjeron una sensibilidad significativamente mayor que la obtenida con las técnicas de diagnóstico oficiales. Además, la interpretación en paralelo de las técnicas de detección celular y de anticuerpos alcanzó la máxima sensibilidad: 98%. Por lo tanto, el uso combinado de técnicas de diagnóstico que detectan respuestas tanto celulares como humorales podría convertirse en una alternativa en el control de brotes de TB bovina en entornos de alta prevalencia.… Leer más

Infection Genetics and Evolution

Phylogenomic analysis of the complete sequence of a gastroenteritis-associated cetacean adenovirus (bottlenose dolphin adenovirus 1) reveals a high degree of genetic divergence

Investigación publicada en Infection Genetics and Evolution


Adenoviruses are common pathogens in vertebrates, infecting a wide range of hosts, but only having rarely been detected and correlated with disease in cetaceans. This article describes the first complete genomic sequence of a cetacean adenovirus, bottlenose dolphin adenovirus 1 (BdAdV-1), detected in captive bottlenose dolphin population (Tursiops truncatus) suffering from self-limiting gastroenteritis. The complete genome sequence of BdAdV-1 was recovered from data generated by high-throughput sequencing and validated by Sanger sequencing. The genome is 34,080bp long and has 220 nucleotides l… Leer más

Tuberculin Skin Testing Boosts Interferon-gamma Responses to DIVA Reagents in Mycobacterium bovis-infected Cattle

Clinical and Vaccine Immunology publica este artículo de investigación


BCG vaccination sensitises cattle to bovine tuberculin which compromises the use of the current bovine TB surveillance tests. Although the performance of a blood test (that utilises antigens expressed by Mycobacterium bovis but not by BCG) capable of discriminating infected from vaccinated animals (DIVA interferon-gamma test, DIT) has been evaluated in naturally infected TB field reactors, there is a need to perform similar analysis in a BCG vaccinated/M. bovis infected population. Furthermore, we explored different scenarios under which a DIT may be implemented alongside BCG vaccination: (i) … Leer más

Characterization of Pasteurella multocida associated with ovine pneumonia using multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) and virulence-associated gene profile analysis and comparison with porcine isolates

Artículo de investigación publicado en Veterinary Microbiology


Pasteurella multocida is a pathogen causing disease in a wide range of hosts including sheep and pigs. Isolates from ovine pneumonia were characterized by MLST (Multi-host and RIRDC databases) and virulence-associated gene (VAG) typing and compared with porcine isolates. Ovine and porcine isolates did not share any STs as determined by both schemes and exhibited different VAG profiles. With the Multi-host database, sixteen STs were identified among 43 sheep isolates with two STs (ST50 and ST19) comprising 53.5% of the isolates, and seven MLST genotypes (ST3, ST11 and ST62 included 75% of the i… Leer más

In-Depth Characterization and Functional Analysis of Clonal Variants in a Mycobacterium tuberculosis Strain Prone to Microevolution

Frontiers in Microbiology publica este artículo de investigación


The role of clonal complexity has gradually been accepted in infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), although analyses of this issue are limited. We performed an in-depth study of a case of recurrent MTB infection by integrating genotyping, whole genome sequencing, analysis of gene expression and infectivity in in vitro and in vivo models. Four different clonal variants were identified from independent intrapatient evolutionary branches. One of the single-nucleotide polymorphisms in the variants mapped in mce3R, which encodes a repressor of an operon involved in virulence, and affected … Leer más

Spread of mcr-1-carrying Enterobacteriaceae in sewage water from Spain

Artículo de investigación publicado en The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy


OBJECTIVES: The mobile colistin resistance gene mcr-1 has been identified worldwide in human and animal sources, while its occurrence in the environment is still largely unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of mcr-1-harbouring Enterobacteriaceae in water samples obtained from rivers and waste water treatment plants in the area of Barcelona, Spain. METHODS: The presence of mcr-1 was detected by PCR. Bacterial identification was performed via MALDI-TOF MS. Resistance to colistin was determined by a broth dilution method. The epidemiological relationship between the p… Leer más

Early Detection of Infection in Pigs through an Online Monitoring System

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publica este artículo de investigación


Late detection of emergency diseases causes significant economic losses for pig producers and governments. As the first signs of animal infection are usually fever and reduced motion that lead to reduced consumption of water and feed, we developed a novel smart system to monitor body temperature and motion in real time, facilitating the early detection of infectious diseases. In this study, carried out within the framework of the European Union research project Rapidia Field, we tested the smart system on 10 pigs experimentally infected with two doses of an attenuated strain of African swine f… Leer más

Understanding African Swine Fever infection dynamics in Sardinia using a spatially explicit transmission model in domestic pig farms

Transboundary and Emerging Diseases publica este artículo de investigación


African swine fever virus (ASFV) has been endemic in Sardinia since 1978, resulting in severe losses for local pig producers and creating important problems for the island`s veterinary authorities. This study used a spatially explicit stochastic transmission model followed by two regression models to investigate the dynamics of ASFV spread amongst domestic pig farms, to identify geographic areas at highest risk and determine the role of different susceptible pig populations (registered domestic pigs, non-registered domestic pigs [brado] and wild boar) in ASF occurrence. We simulated transmissi… Leer más
