Inhibitory effect of diminazene aceturate, thymoquinone, and a combination therapy of both drugs on the growth of Babesia microti. a Oral administration of TQ. b Intraperitoneal administration of TQ. Each value represents the mean ± standard deviation of five mice per experimental group after subtracting the background fluorescence for non-parasitized RBCs from uninfected mice. Asterisks indicate significant differences (P < 0.05) between treated and control mice. Gain values are set to 100. Abbreviations: TQ, thymoquinone; DA, diminazene aceturate; SC, subcutaneous administration; IP, intraperitoneal administration
