Livers of Schistosoma-infected mice stained with MMP-9 antibody, a: Control group, showing negative (−ve) immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatocytes and central vein. b: Vehicle control group, showing strong positive (+ve) immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatocytes. c: PZQ (500 mg/kg body weight) + infection group, mild immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatic tissues adjacent to granuloma. d: Pre-Probiotics+infection group, showing positive (+ve) immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatic tissues surrounding the granuloma. e: Probiotics+infection group, positive (+ve) immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatocytes adjacent to the fibrous granuloma in the hepatic tissues peripheral to the granuloma. f: Pre-Yogurt+infection group, showing positive (+ve) immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatic tissues surrounding the granuloma. g: Yogurt+infection group, positive (+ve) immunoreactivity to MMP-9 in the hepatocytes adjacent to the fibrous granuloma in the hepatic tissues periphery to the granuloma (400x)
