synopsis of article in French (see below)

The results show that the interplay between Nosema and imidacloprid at concentrations encountered naturally by bees, induces a mortality rate of energy and stress were significantly higher than each agent alone. While Nosema and imidacloprid alone have no effect, their combination results in a significant reduction in the production of glucose oxidase.

This suggests the long-term, more immediate effects of these two agents on bee mortality, increased sensitivity of the hive to pathogens due to the decrease of antiseptic products.
