Sections of mouse livers 56 days post-infection with Schistosoma stained with hematoxylin and eosin. a: Control group showing normal liver architecture with normal hepatocytes and central vein. b: Untreated infected group, showing inflammatory cells, granulomatous lesions (asterisk), and focal areas of necrosis with condensed of connective fibrous tissue. c: PZQ (500 mg/kg body weight) + infection group, showing granulomatous lesions (asterisk) with decreased diameter and condensed connective fibrous tissue. d: Pre-Probiotics+infection group, showing inflammatory cells localized around the granuloma (asterisk) with less fibrous tissue. e: Probiotics+infection group showing a massive number of leucocytes surrounding area of granuloma (asterisk) with less fibrous tissue. f: Pre-Yogurt+infection group, showing inflammatory cells localized around the granuloma with less fibrous tissue. g: Yogurt+infection group showing massive number of leucocytes surrounding the area of granuloma (asterisk) with less fibrous tissue (400x)
