French term or phrase: efficacité croisée
Canine ringworm text .... talking about different drugs for treatment ... phrase is:
"efficacité croisée de certains antiparasitaires externes (actuellement à l'étude)" ... so it's drug interaction, but not clear to me if it means that there is greater efficacy when using more than one drug, or problems (positive, negative or neutral?). TIA.

crossed effectiveness/efficacy


Explanation:
En l'absence de vaccin spécifique une certaine immunité croisée existerait avec le virus de la panleucopénie féline et on pourrait employer de tels vaccins, à la condition qu'ils soient inactivés. […]

See this text indicating that an animal may benefit indirectly from another vaccine; I've also had a browse through various examples of 'croisée' in other pages, that lead me to believe that the term is correct. Also I checked in Google to see if 'crossed + immunity' existed in English and it does.
