Main activities of the EU-RL for Bovine Tuberculosis

Comunicación oral en German workshop "Mycobacterial infections"

The European Union Reference Laboratory for Bovine Tuberculosis was assigned to the VISAVET Health Surveillance Centre (Madrid, Spain) in 2008. The EU-RL has the following general functions and duties: a) Coordinating the methods employed in the Member States for diagnosing diseases; b) Assisting actively in the diagnosis of disease outbreaks in Member States by receiving pathogen isolates for confirmatory diagnosis, characterisation and epizootic studies; c) Facilitating the initial or further training of experts in laboratory diagnosis with a view to the harmonisation of diagnostic technique… Leer más

Short communication. Presence, quantification and phylogeny of Israeli acute paralysis virus of honeybees in Andalusia (Spain)

Spanish Journal of Agricultural Research publica este artículo de investigación

This study aimed to assess the possible relationship between the presence of Israeli acute paralysis virus (IAPV) of honeybees and disease symptoms development at the colony level, to describe the IAPV load in field colonies and to illustrate phylogenetic relationships between IAPV isolates in Andalusia (Spain). Presence and load of IAPV was studied in 96 colonies from all provinces in Andalusia. Epidemiological surveys were performed in all the colonies to assess their sanitary status. IAPV was found in 13.5% of the sampled colonies, and no association was observed between the presence of IAP… Leer más

Development and evaluation of a SYBR Green real-time RT-PCR assay for evaluation of cytokine gene expression in horse

Cytokine publica este artículo de investigación

Cytokine secretion is one of the main mechanisms by which the immune system is regulated in response to pathogens. Therefore, the measurement of cytokine expression is fundamental to characterizing the immune response to infections. Real-time quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) is widely used to measure cytokine mRNA levels, but assay conditions should be properly evaluated before analyzing important equine infections through relative quantification of gene expression. The aim of this study was to develop and evaluate a set of RT-qPCR assays for a panel of th… Leer más

Identification of the pattern of appearance and development of thermal windows in the skin of juvenile Pacific walruses (Odobenus rosmarus divergens) in a controlled environment

Investigación publicada en Marine Mammal Science

Marine mammals maintain thermal equilibrium not only by relying on a layer of insulation (e.g., fur or blubber) and a body shape with a relatively low surface-to-volume ratio, but also by adjusting blood flow to the skin and appendages (Bryden and Molyneux 1978, Molyneux and Bryden 1978, Hokkanen 1990, Dehnhardt et al. 1998, Boyd 2000). These areas of adjustable blood flow, known as thermal windows, act as heat-dissipaters or heat-conservers depending on the needs of the animal (Tattersall et al. 2009). For example, cetaceans have circulatory plexuses to enable counter-current heat transfer in… Leer más

African swine fever diagnosis update

African swine fever diagnosis update

Capítulo en el libro Vaccines and Diagnostics for Transboundary Animal Diseases editado por Karger

African swine fever (ASF) is one of the most complex livestock diseases. The significant losses that it causes, coupled with the lack of a vaccine against ASF virus and the possible resemblance with other swine hemorrhagic diseases, make early detection and laboratory diagnosis essential for controlling and managing the disease. All the techniques currently used to diagnose ASF have been fully validated showing high sensitivity and specificity to detect both antigen and antibodies against all 22 known genotypes; and enable the correct diagnosis of ASF in all possible epidemiological situations… Leer más
