Additional file 2: of A vaccine consisting of Schistosoma mansoni cathepsin B formulated in Montanide ISA 720 VG induces high level protection against murine schistosomiasis

Parasite burden reduction in experimental mice compared to saline control mice. The experimental mice were immunized with a formulation of 20 μg Sm-cathepsin B + Montanide ISA 720 VG. Statistically significant decreases in all forms of parasite burden (worm, hepatic egg, and intestinal egg numbers) were observed in the experimental mice compared to the saline control mice (mice that were immunized with saline alone).
