  • ¿Debemos dejar de vacunar contra Fiebre Aftosa en Uruguay' Una
           encuesta nacional a veterinarios

    • Abstract: Abstract: Veterinarians’ opinions are key to successfully implementing disease control programs. Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) has a significant economic impact due to animal production losses and trade restrictions. In 2010, PANAFTOSA defined a roadmap to FMD eradication in South America. Although Uruguay has implemented this plan by using mandatory vaccination since the last outbreak in 2001, vaccination restricts access to premium export markets. The objective of this study was to determine the perception of veterinarians involved in large animal disease control programs (accredited veterinarians) on a future FMD control stage without vaccination in Uruguay. Two hundred and fifty-six accredited veterinarians were surveyed between August and September 2018. Two strata were defined as follows: Stratum 1 (pre-FMD outbreak), veterinarians who enrolled in the University of the Republic in Uruguay before or in 2001 (N=708), and Stratum 2 (post-FMD outbreak) veterinarians who enrolled after 2001 (N=426). Data related to demographics, vaccination perceptions, and FMD-related experiences were collected through online and phone interviews. Logistic regressions were used to determine the association between demographic variables, FMD-related risk perceptions, and the willingness to stop FMD vaccination. 41.7% (± 4.2) and 29.4% (± 4.2) of veterinarians, for strata 1 or 2, respectively, were willing to stop vaccination. Veterinarians’ geographical region of work influenced this perception. The northeast area being more likely to support stopping vaccination (46.3 ± 5.8%) when compared to the South-center (39.2 ± 4.9%) and West (25.3 ± 5.0%). Accredited veterinarians are still hesitant to stop vaccination, presenting problems when implementing a non-vaccination stage.Resumen: Las opiniones de los veterinarios son clave para implementar con éxito los programas de control de enfermedades. La fiebre aftosa (FA) tiene un impacto económico significativo debido a las pérdidas de producción animal y las restricciones comerciales. En 2010, PANAFTOSA definió un Plan para la erradicación de FA en América del Sur. Aunque Uruguay ha implementado este plan mediante el uso de la vacunación obligatoria desde el último brote en 2001, la vacunación restringe el acceso a los mercados de exportación. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar la percepción de los veterinarios involucrados en grandes programas de control de enfermedades animales (veterinarios acreditados) sobre una futura etapa de fiebre aftosa sin vacunación en Uruguay. Se encuestó a 256 veterinarios acreditados entre agosto y septiembre de 2018. Se definieron dos estratos de la siguiente manera: Estrato 1 (pre-brote de fiebre aftosa), veterinarios ingresados a UdelaR en Uruguay antes o en 2001 (N = 708) y veterinarios del Estrato 2 (después del brote de fiebre aftosa) que ingresaron luego 2001 (N = 426). Los datos relacionados con la demografía, las percepciones de vacunación y las experiencias relacionadas con la fiebre aftosa se recopilaron a través de entrevistas telefónicas y en línea. Se utilizaron regresiones logísticas para determinar la asociación entre las variables demográficas, las percepciones del riesgo relacionado con la fiebre aftosa y la voluntad de suspender la vacunación contra la fiebre aftosa. El 41,7% (± 4,2) y el 29,4% (± 4,2) de los veterinarios, para los estratos 1 o 2, respectivamente, estaban dispuestos a suspender la vacunación. La región geográfica de trabajo de los veterinarios influyó en esta percepción. Es más probable que el área noreste apoye la interrupción de la vacunación (46,3 ± 5,8%) en comparación con el centro sur (39,2 ± 4,9%) y el oeste (25,3 ± 5,0%). Los veterinarios acreditados aún dudan en suspender la vacunación, presentando problemas a la hora de implementar una etapa de no vacunación.
  • Estudio retrospectivo de hallazgos ultrasonográficos en útero y ovarios
           de perras no preñadas para determinar la frecuencia de aparición de las
           principales patologías

    • Abstract: Resumen: En el presente estudio retrospectivo se buscó establecer la frecuencia de aparición en perras no preñadas de hallazgos ecográficos compatibles con patologías de útero y ovarios entre los años 2011 y 2017 en el Servicio de Imagenología del Hospital de pequeños animales de la Facultad de Veterinaria de la Universidad de la República, Uruguay. A su vez, estos datos fueron relacionados con signos clínicos e información de reseña y anamnesis de las pacientes para poder emitir una aproximación diagnóstica y de esta manera determinar la casuística de las distintas patologías en este período de tiempo y su relación con edad, peso, y estado reproductivo. Se determinó que de 6010 perras que consultaron en el hospital, a 2288 se les realizó ecografía y 299 tuvieron hallazgos compatibles con: piómetra, otras colectas uterinas (mucómetra, hidrómetra, hemómetra), hiperplasia endometrial quística, tumor de útero, patologías de muñón uterino, quiste ovárico/síndrome de ovario remanente o tumor ovárico. La patología que más se registró fue la piómetra con un 52,8%, seguida de quiste ovárico/ovario remanente con un 26,4% e hiperplasia endometrial quística con un 22,4%, luego en menor proporción por colecta uterina con un 16,7% y masa uterina, patologías de muñón uterino y masa ovárica representada con un 2,7% cada una. Asimismo, se estableció una fuerte relación de estas patologías con el estado reproductivo, encontrándose la mayoría de las mismas en perras enteras, se observó que se presentaban con mayor frecuencia en perras de más de 5 años, y no se pudo determinar una asociación con el peso.Abstract: In the present retrospective study, we sought to establish the frequency of occurrence in non-pregnant bitches of echographic findings compatible with pathologies of the uterus and ovaries between 2011 and 2017 in the Imaging Service of the Small Animal Hospital of the Facultad de Veterinaria - Universidad de la República, Uruguay. In turn, these data were related to clinical signs, review information and anamnesis of the patients to be able to issue a diagnostic approach. In this way, the casuistry of the different pathologies in this period of time and their relationship was determined with age, weight, and reproductive status. It was determined that out of 6010 bitches taken to the hospital, 2288 had an ultrasound study and 299 had findings compatible with: pyometra, other uterine collections (mucometer, hydrometer, hemometer), cystic endometrial hyperplasia, uterus tumor, pathologies of uterine stump, ovarian cyst / ovarian remnant syndrome or ovarian tumor. The pathology that was most recorded was pyometra with 52.8%, followed by ovarian cysts / ovarian remnant with 26.4% and cystic endometrial hyperplasia with 22.4%, followed in lesser proportion by uterine collection with a 16.7% and uterine mass, pathologies of uterine stump and ovarian mass represented with 2.7% each one. Likewise, a strong relationship between these pathologies was established with reproductive status, finding most of them in not neutered bitches, it was observed that they occurred more frequently in bitches over 5 years old, and an association with weight could not be determined.
  • Clostridioides (Clostridium) difficile en porcinos: caracterización,
           consideraciones epidemiológicas y resistencia a los antimicrobianos

    • Abstract: Resumen: Esta revisión tiene como principal objetivo sintetizar, reunir y resumir algunos aspectos relacionados con Clostridioides difficile y su papel como microbiota y patógeno en porcinos. C. difficile es una bacteria anaerobia, esporulada y uno de los principales agentes etiológicos de la diarrea asociada al uso de antibióticos. Los principales factores de virulencia son dos toxinas (A y B) que causan daños en el epitelio del colon cuando se presenta una disbiosis, generalmente producida por el uso de antibióticos. Se ha determinado que esta bacteria tiene una alta prevalencia en porcinos, principalmente en los primeros meses de vida del animal y además muchos de estos animales colonizados con cepas no toxigénicas de C. difficile. Sin embargo, también existen reportes de casos de gastroenteritis producidas por esta bacteria y posiblemente relacionada con el uso y abuso de los antibióticos, aunque las causas de estas infecciones en porcinos aún no están completamente claras y requiere de una mayor investigación. Uno de los genotipos de C. difficile que se aíslan en los cerdos es el RT028 y el cual también ha sido reportado produciendo brotes epidémicos en hospitales humanos, por lo que se ha postulado una posible zoonosis, aunque esta hipótesis no ha sido totalmente demostrada. Adicionalmente, la resistencia a los antimicrobianos en aislamientos de C. difficile en cerdos es considerable y se han reportado fenotipos multirresistentes, por lo que esta bacteria podría estar funcionando como un reservorio ecológico de genes de resistencia a los antimicrobianos. Finalmente, se considera la necesidad de establecer medidas para el uso racional de los antibióticos en las granjas porcinas y un sistema de vigilancia sobre los genotipos circulantes y la resistencia de C. difficile en cerdos.Abstract: The aim of this review is to synthesize, gather and summarize some aspects related to Clostridioides difficile and its role as microbiota and pathogen in pigs. C. difficile is an anaerobic, sporulated bacterium and one of the main etiological agents of diarrhea associated with the use of antibiotics. The main virulence factors are two toxins (A and B) that cause damage to the colon epithelium when a dysbiosis occurs, usually caused by antibiotics. It has been determined that this bacterium has a high prevalence in pigs, mainly in the first months of the animal's life and also many of these animals colonized with non-toxigenic strains of C. difficile. However, there are reports of gastroenteritis caused by this bacterium and possibly related to the use and abuse of antibiotics, although the causes of these infections in swine are not yet completely clear and require further investigation. RT028 is one of the most frequently isolated C. difficile genotypes in pigs, which has also been reported causing epidemic outbreaks in human hospitals; therefore, a possible zoonosis has been postulated, although this hypothesis has not been fully demonstrated. Additionally, high antimicrobial resistance of C. difficile isolates from pigs and multi-resistant phenotypes has been reported. Thus this bacterium could be functioning as an ecological reservoir of antimicrobial resistance genes. Finally, it is necessary to establish measures for the rational use of antibiotics in pig farms and a surveillance system on circulating genotypes and resistance of C. difficile in pigs.
  • Situación sanitaria de las abejas melíferas en Uruguay: novedades de la
           última década

    • Abstract: Resumen: En los últimos años, la apicultura en Uruguay se enfrenta con bajos rendimientos de producción de miel y pérdidas anuales de colonias que pueden alcanzar el 30%, estando los problemas sanitarios involucrados en buena parte de esta situación. A nivel mundial la investigación sobre los factores que amenazan a las poblaciones de abejas melíferas se ha ampliado, abarcando los problemas nutricionales, la respuesta inmune, la microbiota intestinal, la identificación de nuevos patógenos o variantes de los mismos, el efecto de los agroquímicos, y otros insectos que comparten patógenos con las abejas melíferas. Respecto a la varroosis la investigación se ha enfocado en las poblaciones de abejas sobrevivientes a Varroa destructor. En Uruguay, la investigación sobre salud de las abejas melíferas en los últimos 10 años ha sido muy prolífica abordando buena parte de los temas mencionados desde las condiciones particulares que presenta el país. Esta revisión sobre la situación sanitaria de las abejas melíferas en Uruguay se centra en resultados de investigaciones nacionales sobre las parasitosis y virosis más prevalentes, la identificación de un nuevo parásito, el efecto de la nutrición y el herbicida glifosato tanto en la microbiota intestinal como en la sanidad, el estudio de parásitos y virus de las abejas melíferas presentes en abejorros nativos del género Bombus, y la descripción de una enfermedad específica del país como es el Mal del Río. Se resalta la importancia de los diferentes resultados para la apicultura nacional y se ponen en contexto con la información internacional reciente.Summary: In recent years, beekeeping industry in Uruguay faces low honey production yields and annual colony losses that can reach 30%, and health problems are involved in much of this situation. Worldwide, research on the factors that threaten honey bee populations has expanded, encompassing nutritional problems, the immune response, the intestinal microbiota, identification of new pathogens or its variants, the effect of agrochemicals, and other insects that share pathogens with honey bees. Regarding varroosis, research has focused on the populations of bees surviving Varroa destructor. In Uruguay, research on the health of honey bees in the last 10 years has been very prolific, addressing a good part of the aforementioned issues taking into account the particular conditions that the country presents. This review on the health situation of honey bees in Uruguay focuses on the results of national research on the most prevalent parasitosis and virosis, the identification of a new parasite, the effect of nutrition and the herbicide glyphosate on the intestinal microbiota and on the health, the study of parasites and viruses of honey bees present in native bumblebees of the genus Bombus, and the description of the country-specific disease (River disease). The importance of the diverse results for national beekeeping is highlighted and put in context with recent international information.
