Terapeutiske indikationer

54814_spc.docx

Side 1 af 7

Mod infestation af lopper alene eller sammen med flåter.

Mod lopper

Forebyggelse og behandling af infestationer med lopper (Ctenocephalides felis). En

behandling forebygger re-infestation i 7 uger.

Forebygger i 12 uger efter behandling opformering af lopper ved at hindre, at loppeæg

udvikles til voksne lopper.

Præparatet kan anvendes som en del af en behandlingsstrategi i kontrollen af loppebetinget

allergisk dermatitis, der tidligere er diagnosticeret af en dyrlæge.

Mod flåter

Behandling af infestationer med flåter (Ixodes ricinus).

En behandling har vedvarende acaricid virkning i 2 uger over for Ixodes ricinus og i 4 uger

over for Dermacentor reticulatus og Rhipicephalus sanguineus.

Hvis flåter af arterne Dermacentor reticulatus eller Rhipicephalus sanguineus er til stede

på behandlingstidspunktet, er det ikke sikkert, at disse dræbes inden for de første 48 timer.

4.3

Kontraindikationer

Må ikke anvendes til kaniner, da bivirkninger og også død kan forekomme.

Må ikke anvendes i tilfælde af overfølsomhed over for de aktive stoffer eller over for et

eller flere af hjælpestofferne.

4.4

Særlige advarsler

Brug af shampoo eller badning af hunden umiddelbart efter behandling kan nedsætte

virkningstiden. Ved brug af shampoo en gang om måneden forbliver præparatet virksomt i

5 uger efter behandling. Hvis brug af shampoo er nødvendig, er det bedre at gøre det inden

behandling.

Badning gentaget to gange efter behandling havde ingen indflydelse på drabseffekten af

voksne lopper eller den præventive virkning på udviklingen af loppeæg til voksne lopper.

Det er ikke fastlagt, hvilken indflydelse brug af shampoo og badning af hunden har på

virkningen mod flåter.

Kontrolforanstaltningerne ved loppeinfestation indledes med behandling af hundens kurv,

sove- og hvilesteder, som gulvtæpper og bløde møbler, med en egnet insektgift samt

regelmæssig støvsugning.

For at nedsætte belastningen med lopper fra omgivelserne skal alle dyr i husstanden også

behandles med et egnet loppemiddel.

Præparatet forhindrer ikke flåter i at hæfte sig på dyrene. Under uheldige omstændigheder

kan overførsel af smitsom sygdom med flåter derfor ikke helt udelukkes.

Der er påvist øjeblikkelig virkning på Ixodex ricinus, hvilket indikerer, at flåter af denne

art, sandsynligvis dræbes inden for 48 timer efter behandling. Hvis flåter af arterne

Dermacentor reticulatus eller Rhipicephalus sanguineus er til stede på

behandlingstidspunktet, er det ikke sikkert, at disse dræbes inden for de første 48 timer.

Døde flåter vil ofte falde af hunden af sig selv. Tilbageværende flåter bør omhyggeligt

fjernes, mens det sikres at ingen munddele efterlades i huden.

4.5

Særlige forsigtighedsregler vedrørende brugen

54814_spc.docx

Side 2 af 7

Særlige forsigtighedsregler for dyret

Til anvendelse på huden.

Dyr bør vejes nøjagtigt inden behandling.

På grund af manglende oplysninger om sikkerhed bør præparatet ikke anvendes til hvalpe

under 10 uger og/eller under 2 kg kropsvægt.

Undgå omhyggeligt at pipettens indhold kommer i kontakt med dyrets øjne eller mund.

Indtagelse ved slikken på behandlingsstedet bør undgås, både for den behandlede hund og

andre dyr, som den er i kontakt med.

Undgå at anvende præparatet på sår eller beskadiget hud.

På grund af manglende oplysninger om sikkerhed bør behandlingen ikke gentages med et

interval under 4 uger.

Brugen af præparatet til syge og svækkede hunde er ikke undersøgt.

Særlige forsigtighedsregler for personer, der administrerer lægemidlet

Præparatet kan forårsage neurotoksicitet.

Præparatet kan være skadeligt, hvis det indtages.

Undgå kontakt med hud og mund.

Undgå indtagelse, også via hånd-til-mund kontakt.

Undlad at ryge, drikke eller spise under påføringen.

Vask hænderne efter brug.

Børn bør ikke lege med behandlede dyr, og behandlede dyr bør ikke håndteres før

påføringsstedet er tørt. Det anbefales derfor, at dyrene ikke behandles om dagen, men tidlig

aften. Nyligt behandlede dyr bør ikke gives lov til at sove sammen med deres ejere, især

børn.

Opbevar pipetterne i original emballage indtil brug og smid brugte pipetter ud med det

samme.

I tilfælde af kontakt med huden ved hændeligt uheld skylles med vand.

I tilfælde af selvindgivelse ved hændeligt uheld skal der straks søges lægehjælp, og

indlægssedlen eller etiketten bør vises til lægen.

Andre forsigtighedsregler

Fipronil og pyriproxifen kan have skadelig virkning på vandlevende organismer. Hunde

må ikke have adgang til vandløb eller åer i 48 timer efter behandling (se også pkt. 6.6).

Præparatet kan have skadelig virkning på malede, lakerede eller andre overflader i

hjemmet, samt på møbler. Lad påføringsstedet tørre før der gives adgang til disse

materialer.

4.6

Bivirkninger

Forbigående kosmetiske effekter, som fugtigt udseende eller let skældannelse, kan

forekomme på påføringsstedet.

Ifølge den samlede erfaring med disse aktive stoffer i spot-on formuleringer, kan

forbigående hudreaktioner på påføringsstedet (skældannelse, lokalt hårtab, kløe, rødmen og

misfarvning af huden) samt generaliseret kløe eller hårtab ses efter brug. I meget sjældne

tilfælde kan øget spytsekretion, forbigående neurologiske symptomer (forstærket

berøringssans, nedstemthed, angstsymptomer), symptomer fra luftvejene eller opkast

forekomme.

4.7

Drægtighed, diegivning eller æglægning

Laboratorieundersøgelser af fipronil og pyriproxifen har ikke vist teratogen eller

embryotoksisk effekt. Der er ikke foretaget undersøgelser på drægtige og diegivende

54814_spc.docx

Side 3 af 7

hunhunde. Må kun anvendes til drægtige og diegivende hunde i overensstemmelse med

den ansvarlige dyrlæges vurdering af risk-benefit-forholdet.

4.8

Interaktion med andre lægemidler og andre former for interaktion

Ingen kendte.

4.9

Dosering og indgivelsesmåde

Spot-on anvendelse.

Dosering:

Afhængig af kropsvægten, som angivet i skemaet nedenfor, appliceres indholdet af 1

pipette på huden pr. hund, svt. en anbefalet dosering på 6,7 mg fipronil og 2 mg

pyriproxifen pr. kg. kropsvægt.

Til hunde over 60 kg bør en relevant kombination af pipetter anvendes.

Administrationsmetode:

Pipetten fjernes fra sit hylster og holdes lodret. Slå på den øverste smalle del af pipetten for

at sikre, at indholdet er i den nedre tykke del. Knæk den øverste del af spot-on pipettens

spids af langs den markerede linje.

Del hundens pels på nakken foran skulderbladene, så huden bliver synlig. Anbring toppen

af pipetten direkte på huden og klem blidt adskillige gange for at få indholdet ud. Særligt

på store hunde, kan det være nødvendigt at fordele pipettens indhold på yderligere et eller

to steder langs hundens ryg for at undgå, at opløsningen løber af eller fordeler sig

overfladisk i pelsen.

Dryp-frit system (indholdet frigives kun ved pres på pipettens brede del).

En pipette svarer til en behandling med mulighed for genbehandling en gang om måneden.

For at opnå optimal kontrol med loppe- og flåtangreb samt loppeopformering kan

behandlingsprogrammet baseres på den lokale epidemiologiske situation.

4.10

Overdosering

Ingen alvorlige bivirkninger blev set ved sikkerhedsundersøgelser udført på 10 uger gamle

hvalpe, der fik op til 5 gange den maksimalt anbefalede dosis 3 gange med et interval på 4

uger samt den maksimalt anbefalede dosis 6 gange med et interval på 4 uger.

Risiko for bivirkninger (se pkt. 4.6) kan imidlertid øges ved overdosering, hvorfor dyret

altid skal behandles med den korrekte størrelse pipette i forhold til kropsvægt.

FARMAKOLOGISKE EGENSKABER

Farmakoterapeutisk gruppe: Ektoparasiticider til udvortes brug, fipronil, kombinationer.

ATCvet-kode: QP 53 AX 65

5.1

Farmakodynamiske egenskaber

Fipronil er et insekticid og acaricid tilhørende phenylpyrazolfamilien. Fipronil og dets

metabolit fipronilsulfon virker på ligandregulerede chloridkanaler, særlig dem der styres af

neurotransmitteren gammaaminosmørsyre (GABA) samt de desensibiliserende (D) og non-

desensibiliserende (N) kanaler reguleret af glutamat (Glu, en ligandreguleret chloridkanal,

som er unik for invertebrater), hvorved den præ-og postsynaptiske passage af chloridioner

over cellemembranen blokeres. For insekter eller mider fører dette til en ukontrolleret

aktivitet i centralnervesystemet og døden.

Pyriproxyfen er en regulator af insekters vækst ((IGR) insect growth regulator), som

tilhører gruppen af stoffer kendt som juvenile hormonanaloger. Pyriproxifen steriliserer

voksne lopper og forhindrer udviklingen af immature stadier. Ved kontakt med molekylet

forhindres fremkomst af voksne insekter ved blokering af udviklingen af æg (ovicid

virkning), larver og pubber (larvicid virkning), som efterfølgende elimineres. Efter voksne

loppers kontakt med og/eller indtagelse af molekylet, virker det også ved at sterilisere æg

under deres modning og før de lægges. Molekylet forhindrer kontaminering af behandlede

dyrs omgivelser med immature stadier af lopper.

Kombinationen af fipronil og pyriproxifen har insekticid og acaricid virkning over for

lopper (Ctenocephalides felis), flåter (Rhipicephalus sanguineus, Dermacentor reticulatus,

Ixodes ricinus) og forhindrer endvidere, at æg udvikler sig til voksne lopper.

5.2

Farmakokinetiske egenskaber

Efter topikal applikation af præparatet, og ved normal brug, fordeles fipronil og

pyriproxifen godt over hele hundens hårlag inden for 24 timer.

Fipronils primære metabolit er fipronilsulfon, som også har insekticid og acaricid virkning.

Koncentrationerne af fipronil, fipronilsulfon og pyriproxifen i hårlaget aftager over tid,

men kan påvises mindst frem til 84 dage efter behandling.

Efter behandling nås den maksimale plasmakoncentration for fipronil efter 3-7 dage, for

fipronilsulfon efter 7-14 dage og for pyriproxifen efter 1-3 dage.

Plasmakoncentrationerne af fipronil og pyriproxifen aftager over tid og kan kvantificeres

op til 50 dage efter behandling.

Risk ranking of chemical and microbiological hazards in food

Published on: Mon, 27 Aug 2018 00:00:00 +0200 Risk ranking is a versatile tool used to prioritise activities performed by public health regulatory bodies. It also allows efficient communication between all stakeholders in the process of risk analysis. However, risk ranking methods are still not optimal. Because of the different approaches employed in the risk assessment of microbiological agents and chemicals, it is difficult to rank them together using the same metrics. In our work, we first discuss di...

Bedrijven in de eierketen, de NVWA en de ministeries van VWS en LNV hebben onvoldoende voorrang gegeven aan voedselveiligheid. Bedrijven in de eierketen maken hun wettelijke verantwoordelijkheid niet waar. Bij de NVWA krijgt voedselveiligheid te weinig aandacht. Politiek en bestuur hebben een te beperkte opvatting over hun eigen rol ten aanzien van voedselveiligheid en komen pas in actie als zich een incident of crisis voordoet. Dat zijn de belangrijkste conclusies uit het rapport van de Commissie onderz...
