    • Development of a lateral flow immunochromatography test for the rapid detection of bovine tuberculosis 

      Alonso, Maria Natalia; Griffa, Natanael; Moyano, Roberto Damián; Mon, Maria Laura; Colombatti Olivieri, Maria Alejandra; Barandiaran, Soledad; Martinez Vivot, Marcela; Fiorini, Gonzalo; Canal, Ana María; Santangelo, María De La Paz; Singh, Mahavir G.; Romano, Maria Isabel (Elsevier, 2021-04)
      Detection of specific antibodies would be a useful test strategy for bovine tuberculosis (bTB) as a complement to the single skin test. We developed a lateral flow immunochromatography (LFIC) test for rapid bTB detection ...

      Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a disease caused mainly by the Mycobacterium bovis and that is endemic to livestock populations in most Latin American countries. Traditionally, bTB control programs are costly and targeted to ...
    • In search of hepatitis E virus infection in wild boar and cattle from Argentina 

      La Sala, Luciano Francisco; Barandiaran, Soledad; Eirin, Maria Emilia; Ferrara Muñiz, Ximena; Abate, Sergio; Sánchez Puch, Silvia; Mathet, Verónica; Delfino, Cecilia María (Sociedad Argentina para el Estudio de los Mamíferos, 2022)
      Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a pathogen with zoonotic potential that affects domestic pigs, wild boar Sus scrofa, and humans, among other species. The HEV has been reported in wild boar from Argentina and Uruguay, but ...
    • Mycobacterioses in dogs and cats from Buenos Aires, Argentina 

      Barandiaran, Soledad; Martinez Vivot, Marcela; Falzoni, Elvira; Marfil, Maria Jimena; Perez Tort, Gabriela; Rovatti, Paula; Fernandez, Mónica; Iachini, Ricardo; Satek, Fernanda; Duchene, Adriana; Zumarraga, Martin Jose (Sage Publications, 2017-09)
      Mycobacterioses can produce nonspecific clinical signs in dogs and cats that make diagnosis difficult. Furthermore, the full characterization of mycobacterial agents is not always possible or practical. We characterized ...
    • Mycobacterium bovis Dmce2 double deletion mutant protects cattle against challenge with virulent M. bovis 

      Blanco, Federico Carlos; Bianco, María Veronica; Garbaccio, Sergio Gabriel; Meikle, Virginia; Gravisaco, María José; Montenegro, Valeria Noely; Alfonseca, Edgar; Singh, Mahavir G.; Barandiaran, Soledad; Canal, Ana María; Vagnoni, Lucas Emilio; Buddle, Bryce Malcom; Bigi, Fabiana; Cataldi, Angel Adrian (Elsevier, 2013-05)
      A Mycobacterium bovis strain deleted in mce2A and mce2B genes (M. bovis Δmce2) was tested as an experimental vaccine in cattle challenged with a virulent M. bovis strain. Three-and-a-half-month old calves (n = 5 to 6 per ...
    • Mycobacterium bovis ESAT-6, CFP-10 and EspC antigens show high conservation among field isolates
