Determination of the immunotoxic potential of heavy metals on the functional activity of bottlenose dolphin leukocytes in vitro

Investigation article published in Veterinary Immunology and Immunopathology


Heavy metals may affect the immune system of cetaceans. But no information exists on their effects on the bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) immune system, although this species is a coastal top predator which can bioaccumulate high concentrations of them. This work studies the effects of Hg (1, 5 and 10mg/L), Al (2,5, 25 and 50mg/L), Cd (1, 10, 20 and 40mg/L), Pb (1, 10, 20 and 50mg/L) and Cr (1 and 10mg/L), on the function of phagocytes and lymphocytes isolated from the peripheral blood of bottlenose dolphins under in vitro conditions. Cell viability, apoptosis, lymphocyte proliferation… Read more

Journal of Virological Methods

Rapid and differential diagnosis of foot-and-mouth disease, swine vesicular disease, and vesicular stomatitis by a new multiplex RT-PCR assay

Investigation published in Journal of Virological Methods


A highly sensitive and specific one-step multiplex RT-PCR assay has been developed and standardised for the simultaneous and differential detection of the most important vesicular viruses affecting livestock: foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV), swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV), and vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV). The method uses three primer sets, each one specific for the corresponding virus, selected to detect of all serotypes of FMD and VS. The detection range was confirmed by examination of a collection of 31 isolates of the three target viruses. The specificity of the assay was als… Read more

Journal of Virological Methods

A sensitive one-step real-time RT-PCR method for detection of deformed wing virus and black queen cell virus in honeybee Apis mellifera

Journal of Virological Methods publish this investigation article


A one-step real-time RT-PCR based on SYBR Green (SG) chemistry was developed for the detection, differentiation and quantification of two of the most common viruses on the honeybee Apis mellifera L., deformed wing virus and black queen cell virus. Two sets of primers specific for each virus, were designed in conserved regions of the viral genome for their use in the one-step real-time RT-PCR. Both reactions were optimized for highest sensitivity and specificity and SG-based real-time was used to achieve quantitative detection. All samples evaluated in this study were from Spanish honeybee colo… Read more

Journal of Clinical Microbiology

Single-nucleotide polymorphism in two representative multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium bovis isolates collected from patients in a Spanish hospital harboring a human infection outbreak

Journal of Clinical Microbiology publish this investigation article


Mycobacterium bovis is the etiological agent of tuberculosis in domestic and wild animals. Its involvement as a human pathogen has been highlighted again with the recent descriptions of transmission through dairy products (18), reactivation or primary infection in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients (5), and association with meat industry workers, animal keepers, or hunters (3). Strains resistant to antituberculous drugs (M. bovis is naturally resistant to pyrazinamide) pose an additional risk (2). Several studies have demonstrated that mutations in target genes are associated with … Read more
