Parasitological endpoints of schistosomiasis in animals infected with S. mansoni alone or a combination of S. mansoni and T. trichiura. Baboons were obtained from OUHSC with or without pre-existing T. trichiura infection. All baboons were subsequently infected with 1000 S. mansoni cercariae and sacrificed after 8 weeks. a S. mansoni worm burden. b Eggs per gram in liver tissue. c Average number of granulomas in the liver within a 1 × 1 cm2 area. d Average size of granulomas in the liver within a 1 × 1 cm2 area. e Number and size of granulomas within a 1 × 1 cm2 area. Error bars represent the mean and standard error of the mean. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001
