Quantitative risk assessment of African swine fever introduction into Spain by legal import of swine products

Artículo de investigación publicado en Research in Veterinary Science

African swine fever (ASF) is currently threatening the global swine industry. Its unstoppable global spread poses a serious risk to Spain, one of the world`s leading producers. Over the past years, there has been an increased global burden of ASF not only in swine but also swine products. Unfortunately, many pigs are not diagnosed before slaughter and their products are used for human consumption. These ASF-contaminated products are only a source for new ASF outbreaks when they are consumed by domestic pigs or wild boar, which may happen either by swill feeding or landfill access. This study p… Leer más

Translating eco-evolutionary biology into therapy to tackle antibiotic resistance

Investigación publicada en Nature reviews. Microbiology

Antibiotic resistance is currently one of the most important public health problems. The golden age of antibiotic discovery ended decades ago, and new approaches are urgently needed. Therefore, preserving the efficacy of the antibiotics currently in use and developing compounds and strategies that specifically target antibiotic-resistant pathogens is critical. The identification of robust trends of antibiotic resistance evolution and of its associated trade-offs, such as collateral sensitivity or fitness costs, is invaluable for the design of rational evolution-based, ecology-based treatment a… Leer más

Hemolysis, icterus and lipemia interfere with the determination of two oxidative stress biomarkers in canine serum

BMC Veterinary Research publica este artículo de investigación

Background: Oxidative stress has been proven to play a role in numerous human and canine diseases. Among the biomarkers of oxidative stress, Thiobarbituric Acid Reactive Substances (TBARS) and Total Antioxidant Status (TAS) are two of the most widely used. Preanalytical factors are crucial for obtaining accurate results in these assays. Hemolysis, icterus and lipemia (HIL) are common sources of preanalytical errors in the laboratory; however, limited information is available regarding the considerations for canine specimens. Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the potential … Leer más

Will we ever eradicate animal tuberculosis?

Artículo de investigación publicado en Irish veterinary journal

Two characteristics of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC) are particularly relevant for tuberculosis (TB) epidemiology and control, namely the ability of this group of pathogens to survive in the environment and thereby facilitate indirect transmission via water or feed, and the capacity to infect multiple host species including human beings, cattle, wildlife, and domestic animals other than cattle. As a consequence, rather than keeping the focus on certain animal species regarded as maintenance hosts, we postulate that it is time to think of complex and dynamic multi-host MTC mainte… Leer más

Primary Feline Tauopathy: Clinical, Morphological, Immunohistochemical, and Genetic Studies

Investigación publicada en Animals

Tauopathies are a group of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by the pathological aggregation of hyperphosphorylated tau in neurons and glia. Primary tauopathies are not uncommon in humans but exceptional in other species. We evaluate the clinical, neuropathological, and genetic alterations related to tau pathology in 16 cats aged from 1 to 21 years with different clinical backgrounds. Interestingly, a 10-year-old female cat presented a six-year progressive history of mental status and gait abnormalities. The imaging study revealed generalized cortical atrophy. Due to the poor prognosis,… Leer más

Persistencia de herpesvirus equino tipo 1 en orina

Trabajo presentado por Abel Dorrego Rodríguez para la obtención del Máster de Investigación en Ciencias Veterinarias

Herpesvirus equino tipo 1 es un virus altamente contagioso distribuido globalmente que causa cuadros de tipo respiratorio, reproductivo y neurológico en équidos. Es frecuente la presentación en forma de brotes en los que un diagnóstico rápido es esencial. La descripción de la presencia del virus en orina abre la puerta a su utilización como muestra diagnóstica. Con la finalidad de conocer el comportamiento del virus en este fluido y para establecer el método de conservación más adecuado, se llevó a cabo este estudio en el que se inoculó el virus artificialmente en muestras de 6 caballos, valor… Leer más
