aspects of animal giardiosis in granada province (southern spain).an epidemiological study of animal giardiosis was carried out in the province of granada. in this study, 912 samples from dogs, 592 from cows, 1165 from sheep, and 574 from goats were analyzed, obtaining prevalences of 12.09%, 0.16%, 6.26% and 4.00%, respectively. prevalence was studied in relation to sex of host, area within the province and seasonal change; in addition, the age factor was taken into account in the case of dogs.19968888550
seroprevalence of oestrus ovis (diptera, oestridae) infestation and associated risk factors in ovine livestock from southwestern spain.this survey was carried out to determine the seroprevalence of nasal infestation by sheep bot fly, oestrus ovis l., and to identify the risk factors associated with the disease in flocks in southwestern spain. in total, 5,878 sera samples of adult sheep were collected at random in 551 farms from four provinces in the southwestern spain: badajoz, cáceres, córdoba, and sevilla. sera were tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for o. ovis antibodies, by using a crude l2 larval as antigen. the ...200515962782
genetic signatures of a mediterranean influence in iberian peninsula sheep husbandry.highly adaptable and versatile populations of domestic sheep, the result of millennia of intense husbandry, are found in almost every corner of the world. here we describe a genetic survey of sheep from the western fringe of its european distribution. we studied the mitochondrial dna control region sequences from 161 individuals belonging to 7 portuguese sheep breeds. our study revealed a high level of genetic diversity, with an average breed haplotype diversity of 0.983, substantially above tha ...200616672283
evidence of anaplasma infections in european roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from southern spain.anaplasma spp. (rickettsiales: anaplasmataceae) are tick-borne pathogens of veterinary and human importance. the wildlife hosts for these pathogens are not well characterized and may play an important role in the epidemiology of the disease. the objective of this research was to study the infection with a. marginale, a. ovis and a. phagocytophilum in free-ranging european roe deer (capreolus capreolus) from cádiz, andalucía, spain. of 17 roe deer tested, 14 (82%) and 5 (29%) had antibodies react ...200817655893
biodiversity of the microbial community in a spanish farmhouse cheese as revealed by culture-dependent and culture-independent methods.the microbial diversity within alberquilla cheese, made from a spontaneously fermented mixture of raw goats' and sheep's milk in the alpujarra mountains (granada, south-east spain), has been studied by the classical culturing method and also by molecular analysis of community dna. a collection of 206 isolates was obtained from the cheese on different selective/differential media, which were then re-grouped to 52 after randomly amplified polymorphic dna (rapd)-pcr analyses. isolates on man-rogosa ...200818692931
monitoring bluetongue disease (btv-1) epidemic in southern spain during 2007.on the 25th of july 2007, bluetongue virus (btv) serotype 1 was detected in andalusia, southern spain for the first time. a total of 4436 farms infected with btv-1 were confirmed during that year: 3162 in sheep flocks, 113 in goat flocks, 7 in cattle herds and 1154 in mixed farms (sheep, goat and/or cattle in the same farm). the most common clinical signs were: fever, depression, lethargy, facial edema, and salivation (observed in more than 70% of the infected farms). lesions in oral mucosa, lam ...201020663576
serosurvey study of toscana virus in domestic animals, granada, spain.abstract toscana virus (tosv) is transmitted by infected sandflies. in mediterranean countries, tosv is one of the major viral pathogens involved in aseptic meningitis and meningoencephalitis in humans. it remains unclear if there are animal reservoirs able to maintain the virus through the cold months of the year, when the vector is not circulating. from may to october of 2006 and 2007, we conducted a serosurvey study on domestic animals from granada province (southern spain). tosv was investig ...201020925529
