aetiology of caprine footrot in extremadura region, spain.the present study reports on the location of major foci of footrot in goats in the extremadura region of spain by the determination of locally occurring strictly anaerobic microorganisms involved in the pathogenesis and development of this disease. the most commonly isolated microorganisms belonged to the genera dichelobacter, fusobacterium, porphyromonas and prevotella; these were found in conjunction with other species of minor importance. the species most frequently isolated were fusobacteriu ...200617020135
mastitis caused by mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides (large colony type) in goat flocks in spain.we describe three different outbreaks of mastitis caused by m. mycoides subspecies mycoides lc type (mmm lc) in three goat flocks from the extremadura region of south-west spain. thirty-two fast-growing isolates were obtained on hayflick's and friis's media with inhibitors from different specimens. all were identified as mmm lc in spite of their cultural, biochemical and serological features.199910676154
prevalence, serotypes and virulence genes of shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli isolated from ovine and caprine milk and other dairy products in spain.the aim of this study was to determinate the prevalence, serotypes and virulence genes of shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli (stec) strains isolated from different dairy products (dp) in spain with the purpose of determining whether dp represent a potential source of stec pathogenic for humans. a total of 502 dp were examined from 64 different ovine and caprine flocks and 6 dairy plants in extremadura (western spain). samples were collected monthly between march 2003 and june 2004 and includ ...200616260057

molecular epidemiology of bovine tuberculosis in wild animals in spain: a first approach to risk factor human tuberculosis (mycobacterium tuberculosis), molecular epidemiology has accurately indicated the risk factors involved in active transmission of the disease, by comparing individuals whose isolates belong to a cluster with patients whose strains are considered unique. nevertheless, this application has not been used in bovine tuberculosis (mycobacterium bovis). our study describes the integration of epidemiological data into molecular classification data on m. bovis isolates. these were i ...200516143470
genital lesions in an outbreak of caprine contagious agalactia caused by mycoplasma agalactiae and mycoplasma putrefaciens.this paper reports on the genital lesions observed in adult male and female goats from a commercial flock in the extremadura region of southwestern spain, following an outbreak of contagious agalactia syndrome caused by mycoplasma agalactiae and m. putrefaciens. although both species were isolated from several organs, m. putrefaciens was the only agent isolated from the genital lesions reported here, characterized by desquamative salpingitis and cystic catarrhal metritis in females and by testic ...200314720185
