Trichuris suis eggs incubated with Gram-positive bacteria in RPMI-1640 without antimicrobials. Samples were incubated for 20 hours at 37 °C. Individual counts of T. suis (Milli-Q or H2SO4 pH1) and median for all experiments with Enterococcus caccae (n = 20), Streptococcus hyointestinalis (n = 10), Lactobacillus reuteri with T. suis in Milli-Q (n = 15), L. reuteri with T. suis in H2SO4 pH1 (n = 20), L. amylovorus (n = 15), and L. murinus (n = 10). Controls represent T. suis eggs without the addition of bacteria (n = 25)
