Dinámicas Evolutivas de los Cassettes de Resistencia en Integrones. Profundizando en el Modelo de Integrón

Tesis Doctoral que será defendida por Alberto Hipólito Carrillo de Albornoz en la Facultad de Veterinaria de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid


La resistencia a antimicrobianos es una de las principales amenazas para la salud global del siglo XXI. El uso indiscriminado de antibióticos, entre otros factores, ha provocado un incremento exponencial de bacterias resistentes a antimicrobianos en las últimas décadas. Se estima que cada año mueren entre 1.5 y 5 millones de personas debido a infecciones causadas por bacterias multirresistentes. Estos datos ponen de manifiesto la necesidad de tomar medidas urgentes para combatir esta amenaza, empezando por entender las fuerzas que rigen el éxito de las bacterias multirresistentes. La exce… Leer más

Active surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in companion animals: A pilot study in a Spanish Veterinary Teaching Hospital

Artículo de investigación publicado en Comparative Immunology, Microbiology and Infectious Diseases


The role of small animal veterinary hospitals in the onset and dissemination of antimicrobial-resistant organisms (AMROs) is still not clear, and the implementation of an internal surveillance systems is a cost-effective tool to better understand their impact. The aim of this study was to describe a pilot program of active surveillance in a Spanish Veterinary Teaching Hospital, developed to estimate the detection frequency of AMROs in the commensal flora of patients and in the environment. Surveillance was focused on Methicillin-resistant Staphylococci (MRS), third generation cephalosporins re… Leer más

Forensic findings in urban red fox mortality in the metropolitan area of Madrid, 2014-2022

Artículo de investigación publicado en Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation


The expanding presence of red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in urban and suburban regions could potentially lead to increased instances of human aggression towards this species. We studied 10 deceased red foxes that were submitted by law enforcement agencies in the metropolitan area of Madrid in 2014-2022 because of suspected abuse. Forensic autopsies were performed to establish the cause and manner of death. In 4 of the 10 cases, the cause of death was deemed unnatural, involving blunt-force trauma (n = 2), asphyxia resulting from hanging (n = 1), and firearm injury (n = 1). Among the remaining cases… Leer más

Tertiary lymphoid organs in wild boar exposed to a low-virulent isolate of African swine fever virus

Investigación publicada en The Veterinary quarterly


Despite the great interest in the development of a vaccine against African swine fever (ASF) in wild boar, the immunological mechanisms that induce animal protection are still unknown. For this purpose, tertiary lymphoid organs (TLOs) of wild boar were characterised and compared with mucosa-associated lymphoid tissues (MALTs) by histopathology, histomorphometry and immunohistochemistry (CD3, CD79, PAX5, LYVE1, fibronectin). In addition, real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and immunohistochemistry (p72) were used to evaluate the presence of ASF virus (ASFV) in blood and tissues samples, … Leer más

Eco-Sanitary Regionalization of Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) in the Western Palearctic Realm as a Tool for the Stewardship of African Swine Fever

Investigación publicada en Transboundary and Emerging Diseases


African swine fever (ASF) is a viral hemorrhagic disease affecting domestic and wild suids, with catastrophic socioeconomic impact worldwide. In the European scenario, wild boar (Sus scrofa) actively contributes to the maintenance and spread of the disease. In this study, we applied a multivariate clustering method to define ecoregions in the western Palearctic realm based on ecological and sanitary aspects of ASF in wild boar. Beforehand, we performed a principal components analysis for the eight selected variables. An analysis of the countries was carried out in terms of the extent of ecoreg… Leer más

Estrategias para la prevención de la peste porcina africana

Tesis Doctoral defendida por Carolina Muñoz Peréz en el Centro VISAVET de la Universidad Computense de Madrid


La peste porcina africana (PPA) es una enfermedad infecciosa que afecta tanto a cerdos domésticos como salvajes, y que se encuentra dentro de la lista de enfermedades de declaración obligatoria para la Organización Mundial de Sanidad Animal (WOAH). En los últimos años la enfermedad se ha expandido por todo el mundo convirtiéndose en una pandemia. Una pandemia que supone en la actualidad la mayor amenaza para la producción porcina mundial. En vista de esta situación, la presente tesis doctoral titulada: “Estrategias para la prevención de la peste porcina africana”, persigue el objetivo de obten… Leer más

Molecular detection of herpesvirus in a skin lesion of a humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) from the Western Mediterranean Sea

European Journal of Wildlife Research publica este artículo de investigación


Herpesvirus has the potential to infect a wide variety of animal species. In cetaceans, Alpha- and/or Gammaherpesvirinae have been identified in eight families of odontocetes, and one family of mysticetes. In May 2022, an adult humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) was found stranded in Valencia, Spain. The whale was emaciated, in poor body condition, with multiple lacerations on the dorsal fin and a high number of epibionts of the Cyamidae family, known as whale lice. The individual had been previously released from a ghost net entanglement 5 days before becoming stranded. In a closer exami… Leer más

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma treated with surgical resection, toceranib phosphate and firocoxib in a dog: a case report

Artículo de investigación publicado en Veterinary Research Communications


Exocrine pancreatic carcinomas are rarely reported in dogs. A ductal pancreatic adenocarcinoma in a 10-year-old intact beagle is described in this report. The diagnosis was made based on clinical signs, imaging (abdominal ultrasound and CT scan) and histopathology. Treatment consisted of partial right lobe pancreatectomy followed by adjuvant therapy with toceranib phosphate (Palladia®) and firocoxib (Previcox®) for six months. The treatment was well tolerated, and the survival time was 445 days. To our knowledge, this is the longest survival reported in the literature for a dog diagnosed with … Leer más

Application of machine learning with large-scale data for an effective vaccination against classical swine fever for wild boar in Japan

Artículo de investigación publicado en Scientific reports


Classical swine fever has been spreading across the country since its re-emergence in Japan in 2018. Gifu Prefecture has been working diligently to control the disease through the oral vaccine dissemination targeting wild boars. Although vaccines were sprayed at 14,000 locations between 2019 and 2020, vaccine ingestion by wild boars was only confirmed at 30% of the locations. Here, we predicted the vaccine ingestion rate at each point by Random Forest modeling based on vaccine dissemination data and created prediction surfaces for the probability of vaccine ingestion by wild boar using spatial… Leer más

Evaluation of the Effect of a Recent Comparative Intradermal Tuberculin Test on the Humoral Diagnosis of Paratuberculosis Using Serum and Milk Samples from Goats

Veterinary sciences publica este artículo de investigación


Paratuberculosis (PTB) and tuberculosis (TB) are two mycobacterial diseases with a severe economic and health impact on domestic ruminants. The ante mortem diagnosis of PTB is hampered, among other factors, by the limited sensitivity of all the available diagnostic techniques. Since TB-infected goats subjected to the comparative intradermal tuberculin test (CITT) may experience a booster effect on their antibody titer and a potential enhancement to the sensitivity of humoral techniques for tuberculosis, in the present study we aimed to evaluate this diagnostic strategy on the humoral diagnosis… Leer más
