Figure 4

Higher titer of SjHSP60 total IgG antibody in infected mice treated with CCl4. Normal or S. japonicum-infected mice with or without CCl4 treatment were sacrificed at 8 weeks after infection. (A) Representative histology liver sections were stained with H&E to reveal granulomas. The results are shown at × 200 original magnification. (B) The sera anti-SjHSP60 total IgG and IgG1 antibody levels were determined by ELISA in triplicate wells. The error bars indicate the means ± the SDs from six mice in each group. **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 (Student’s t-text). The data are representative of 3 independent experiments. Abbreviation: SjHSP60, S. japonicum heat shock protein 60.
