Effect of probiotics, yogurt, and PZQ on hepatic expression of Bax and Bcl-2 in control and experimental groups, a: Protein expression determined by ELISA method. b: mRNA expression determined by RT-PCR method. Results (mean ± SEM of three assays) of RT-PCR were normalized to β-actin RNA level and are shown as fold induction (in log2 scale) relative to the mRNA level in the control. #p < 0.05, significant change with respect to Control group; $p < 0.05, significant change with respect to Vehicle control group. Bax: bcl-2-like protein 4 and Bcl-2: B-cell lymphoma 2
