Table 2 Toxicity assessment. Compounds a-15 and a-17 were tested for toxic effects on a human neonatal foreskin fibroblast (NFF) cell line; tolfenpyrad was included as a reference control. Selectivity indices of these compounds on the motility of exsheathed third- and fourth-stage larvae (at 72 h) (xL3s and L4s) and the development of L4s (at 7 days) were calculated using a recognised formula [16]
