Ixodes ricinus studies: mean live tick counts per group and efficacy results.
|Study||n||Arithmetic means (AM) of live ticks and % efficacy1 on indicated days|
|I. ricinus #1||Day 2||Day 9||Day 16||Day 23||Day 30||Day 37||Day 44|
|I. ricinus #2||Day 2||Day 9||Day 16||Day 23||Day 30||Day 37||Day 44|
|I. ricinus #3||Day 2||Day 10||Day 16||Day 22||Day 30||Day 37||–|
Note: p-values6 for comparison of the untreated and treated groups = <0.0001 at all time-points.
n = number of cats per group.
The I. ricinus counts were analyzed using SAS Version 9.4. The logarithm of the (count + 1) was analyzed at each study day separately using the MIXED procedure with treatment group used as a fixed effect and blocks used as a random effect.
Treated group = Novel formulation administered topically once on Day 0 at 0.12 mL/kg, providing 1.4 mg/kg esafoxolaner, 10.0 mg/kg praziquantel and 0.5 mg/kg eprinomectin.
Percent efficacy = [(C – T)/C] × 100, where C and T are the arithmetic means of the control and treated groups, respectively.
