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