Expression level of the serum miR-223 in rabbit, buffalo and human with schistosomiasis. (A) Rabbits were infected percutaneously with 200 S. japonicum cercariae or not infected as control. All the rabbits were sacrificed at 56 days after infection to quantify the miR-223 expression level in the sera. (B, C) The expression level of serum miR-223 was detected in serum samples of schistosomiasis patients or buffalos diagnosed by parasitological detection and uninfected individuals as control. The data shown are measurements from individuals. The bars designate the means for each group.
