The inhibitory activities of fipronil (10% (w/v) solution), (S)-methoprene (9% (w/v) solution), and fipronil/(S)-methoprene (10 and 9% (w/v) solution, respectively) combination against eggs and emerging adult cat fleas (Ctenocephalides felis) and adulticidal activity were tested on experimentally infested dogs. Thirty-two Beagle dogs were selected for this(More)
The efficacy of FRONTLINE SPRAY (0.25% (w/v) fipronil), FRONTLINE SPOT-ON FOR DOGS (10% (w/v) fipronil) and FRONTLINE PLUS FOR DOGS (10% (w/v) fipronil and 9% (S)-methoprene) against the biting louse Trichodectes canis on dogs was confirmed under laboratory conditions. A field study evaluated the efficacy of a single topical application of FRONTLINE SPRAY(More)
Three groups of six cats were kept in similar carpeted pens in which a self-replicating population of Ctenocephalides felis had been established. One group was left untreated, but the other groups were treated every 28th day with 0.5 ml of a 10 per cent fipronil spot-on formulation, and the cats in one of the treated groups also wore a methoprene collar.

The purpose of the present study was to confirm the efficacy of 10% (w/v) fipronil spot-on (Frontline spot-on for cats) in the treatment of feline cheyletiellosis under field conditions. A total of 16 cats of different breeds, sexes, 4 months to 14 years of age and weighing 0.5-6 kg were treated with a single topical application of 10% (w/v) fipronil(More)
BACKGROUND Varicella universal vaccination (UV) has been implemented in many countries for several years. Nevertheless, varicella UV remains debated in Europe and few data are available on the real burden of infection. We assessed the burden of varicella in Belgium through analysis of hospitalised cases during a 1-year period. METHODS Data on children(More)
The efficacy of 0.25% fipronil spray (Frontline Spray, Merial), 10% fipronil spot-on (Frontline Spot-on for Cats, Merial) and 10% fipronil/12% (S)-methoprene (Frontline Plus for Cats, Merial) against the biting louse Felicola subrostratus on cats was assessed and confirmed under laboratory conditions.

This paper analyses the determination of visibility of journals in which researchers of INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research) publish. The corpus is comprised of 671 articles published over a period of four years in 258 journals. The advantage of the method applied for determining the visibility of journals is that it combines two approaches:(More)
A method of ultrasonically guiding ventricular taps in children is described. The needle is introduced through a needle guide in the ultrasound field of a sectorscanner. The direction of the needle is accurately determined and the needle itself is clearly visualized on the television monitor during its introduction into the brain. The results of seven(More)
The heads of 28 non-hypoxic, full-term infants of normal gravidas delivered by forceful vacuum extraction were examined with ultrasound during the early neonatal period. All echographic findings were normal and all neonates had an uneventful evolution during the first week of life. Addendum: Since this article was completed, a massive intracranial(More)
