Xiaochaihu (XCH) decoction reduced Schistosoma japonicum burden of mouse liver. BALB/c mice were infected with 15 S. japonicum cercariae and treated with either saline or Xiaochaihu decoction. Mice were sacrificed and liver tissues were collected 16 weeks post-infection. a H&E staining showing the pathological changes and S. japonicum eggs in mouse liver. b Statistical differences in egg burden of infected mice. Abbreviations: M, Model, S. japonicum infection; XCH-L (M, H), Xiaochaihu decoction low (middle, high) dose. Scale-bars: a, 25 µm. ***P < 0.0001
