Motility of Trichobilharzia regenti schistosomulum-like stages grown 48 h with astrocyte and microglia cultures. a Significantly less parasites remained motile when cultivated in astrocyte cultures (***P < 0.001, Dunnett’s multiple comparisons test). Data are shown as the mean ± standard error of the mean (SEM) of five independent experiments. b Micrograph showing two schistosomula firmly attached to the cell layer in the astrocyte culture. Scale-bar: 100 μm
