Biosecurity assessment of Argentinian pig farms
(Preventive Veterinary Medicine, 2019-02-27)
The pig industry is growing very fast in Argentina with an increasing need for replacement animals, feedstuff and transportation of animals. One of the main competitive advantages of the Argentinian pig ...
Predicting the success of an invader: Niche shift versus niche conservatism
(Ecology and Evolution, 2019-10-25)
Invasive species can encounter environments different from their source populations, which may trigger rapid adaptive changes after introduction (niche shift hypothesis). To test this hypothesis, we ...
Infection dynamics of porcine circovirus type 3 in longitudinally sampled pigs from four Spanish farms
(Veterinary Record, 2019-04-30)
Porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV-3) is a recently discovered virus in domestic pigs and wild boar. The virus has been described in pigs with different clinical/pathological presentations and healthy ...
Hypercalcemia of Malignancy in a Dog Diagnosed With Cholangiocellular Carcinoma
(Topics in Companion Animal Medicine, 2019-02-20)
A 4-year-old, neutered male Golden Retriever was presented with a 1-week history of weight loss, polyuria, and polydipsia. The diagnostic workup showed an increased ionized calcium concentration, mild ...
Limited risk of Zika virus transmission by five Aedes albopictus populations from Spain
(Parasites and Vectors, 2019-03-29)
Background: Aedes albopictus, the Asian tiger mosquito, is an exotic invasive species in Europe. It has substantial public health relevance due to its potential role in transmitting several human ...
Haemophilus parasuis VtaA2 is involved in adhesion to extracellular proteins
(Veterinary Research, 2019-09-23)
Haemophilus parasuis is part of the microbiota of the upper respiratory tract in swine. However, virulent strains can cause a systemic disease known as Glässer’s disease. Several virulence factors have ...
Novel polyomaviruses in mammals from multiple orders and reassessment of polyomavirus evolution and taxonomy
As the phylogenetic organization of mammalian polyomaviruses is complex and currently incompletely resolved, we aimed at a deeper insight into their evolution by identifying polyomaviruses in host orders ...
Systems analysis reveals complex biological processes during virus infection fate decisions
(Genome Research, 2019-05-28)
The processes and mechanisms of virus infection fate decisions that are the result of a dynamic virus-immune system interaction with either an efficient effector response and virus elimination or an ...
Clarification related to the commentary titled “The inappropriate use of formulae and references and the possible domino effect of spurious results” written by Gautam et al. 2019
(Preventive Veterinary Medicine, 2019-11-04)
Diagnostic accuracy of two DNA‐based molecular assays for detection of porcine circovirus 3 in swine population using Bayesian latent class analysis
(Letters in Applied Microbiology, 2019-09-28)
Molecular‐based tools sometimes are the only laboratory techniques available to detect a recently discovered agent, and their validation without the existence of previously described ‘gold standard’ ...
