Dose-response curves of schistosomula exposed to compounds with reported activity against S. mansoni (a; mefloquine, ivermectin, JQ1, praziquantel) generated by the XTT viability assay and microscopy assessment. Microscopic counts and XTT viability assay started 48 h post-treatment. (b) Comparison of the readouts of the XTT viability assays of compounds that present yellow coloration (curcumin and amphotericin) performed without or with a washing step
