Figure 3

Worms were collected from the two groups at 7w post infection. (A) Worm length compared between the two groups; (B) the worm recovery rate in each group was calculated from the number of worms perfused at 7w post infection versus the number of cercariae infected, respectively; (C) comparison of the numbers of paired worms versus the total worms collected from yellow cattle and water buffalo; (D) male worms, the upper worm was from water buffalo and the lower worm was from yellow cattle; (E) female worms, upper from water buffalo and lower from yellow cattle. Level of significance when compared to water buffalo group, **p < 0.01. The number of worms compared per group was at least n = 50 for females and males, respectively, and included worms from all animals.
