PROGRAM® (lufenuron) 6 Month Injectable for Cats is available

preloaded syringe is formulated to provide 4.54 mg/pound (10
mg/kg) body weight of lufenuron. The active ingredient of
PROGRAM 6 Month Injectable for Cats is lufenuron, a benzoylphenyl-urea
derivative with the following chemical composition: N-[2,5-dichloro-4-(1,1,2,3,3,3,-hexafluoropropoxy)-phenyl-aminocarbonyl]-2,
6-difluorobenzamide. Benzoylphenyl-urea compounds, including
lufenuron, are classified as insect development inhibitors
Mode of Action
Lufenuron, the active ingredient of PROGRAM 6 Month Injectable
for Cats, is an insect development inhibitor which breaks
the flea life cycle by inhibiting egg development. Lufenuron's
mode of action is interference with chitin synthesis, polymerization
and deposition. Lufenuron has no effect on adult fleas.
After biting a lufenuron-treated cat, the female flea ingests
a blood meal containing lufenuron which is subsequently deposited
in her eggs. Lufenuron prevents flea eggs from hatching and
developing into adults and thus controls flea populations
by breaking the life cycle. (See Efficacy.)
PROGRAM 6 Month Injectable for Cats is indicated for use in
cats, six weeks of age and older, for the control of flea
Lufenuron controls flea populations by preventing the development
of flea eggs and does not kill adult fleas. Concurrent use
of insecticides may be necessary for adequate control of adult
Do not use in dogs. A severe local reaction may occur in dogs
that is not seen in cats.
The safety of PROGRAM 6 Month Injectable for Cats in reproducing
animals has not been established.
PROGRAM 6 Month Injectable for Cats breaks
the flea life cycle by inhibiting egg development. However,
pre-existing flea populations may continue to develop and
emerge after treatment with PROGRAM 6 Month Injectable for
Cats. Based on results of clinical studies, this emergence
generally occurs during the first 30-60 days. Therefore, noticeable
control may not be observed until several weeks after dosing
when a pre-existing infestation is present. Cooler geographic
areas may have longer lag periods due to a prolonged flea
life cycle. Insecticides may be used concurrently depending
on the severity of the infestation.
