Abstract: During the two summer seasons of 1958 and 1959,tests were conducted on the repellents prepared to protect horses from falling victim to "kasen". The results obtained from the series of tests are summarized as follows : 1. In the experiment of 1958,repellents R_1,R_2,R_4 and R_6 were sprayed, during the period from middle of May to the last of October, on the body surfaces of 8 horses which had had "kasen" as a previous illness. It was found that R_1 was not protective against the disease but on the contrary showed effective for encouragement of the disease. R_2 could not be considered effective. R_4 was not effective in so far as prevention of the disease is concerned, but symptoms of the patients were limited slightly. R_6 showed the most effective action; the patients did not show any symptoms of "kasen" during the whole course of the test. 2. In the 1959 experiment, only R_6 was used for 5 patients. In 3 of the 5,the animals were prevented from falling victim to "kasen"; 3 patients did not show any symptoms through the whole course of the experiment. In the other cases, the authors could not protect the patients from falling victim to "kasen"; itchiness and changes of the skin were localized to the lower portion of the neck, and they did not progress to the tail and upper portion of the neck. 3. Through the observations of patients during 2 year test, the authors have reached the following conclusions; continuous application of R_6 by spraying yields good effect against the disease; the symptoms of "kasen" change toward the better; the degree of the symptoms observed in 1959 showed more slight than that of the same animals in 1958. 4. Finally, it is concluded from the results as a whole that spraying of R_6 daily during summer season is practically and preventively useful against "kasen". The authors wish to express their thanks to Prof. S. YAMAGIWA, Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and to Prof. J. YAMASHITA, Chief of the Department of Parasitology for their constant interest and valuable suggestions. The authors are greatly indebted to the Ministry of Education for its financial assistance. Likewise the assistance of the concerned authorities is highly appreciated. The authors are also indebted to the Hokkai Sankyo Pharmaceutical Company who willingly supplied the medicaments and to Mr. WATANABE, a staff member of the research station of the company who offered many kind advices.
