Abstract

The histo-morphological developmental changes in schistosomula of two groups, Schistosoma (S) mansoniand S. margreboweie inside the liver of definitive host mice was studied at Days post infection (DPI)7, 10, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42.Inhistologically divisions schistosomula groups, S. mansoniand S. margreboweieappeared on 21, 28 and 35 DPI and 10, 14, 21, 28, 35 and 42 DPI respectively in the mice liver. According to the results inbranches of hepatic a rteri es and veinsthe number ofS. mansoniand S. margreboweie was sixand t w e l v e r e s p e c t i v e l y. At 14 DPI, schistosomula group S. margreboweie wasdivided into three regions, the thin anterior, wide middle and thin posterior regions. Afterwards DPI 35 schistosomula group S. mansoniwas conflictedat middle body region, noticeable substantial musculature nearby the ventral sucker as well as an enlargement in gut caecum was observed. Bothgroups, Schistosoma (S) mansoniand S. margreboweie mean and standard deviation remained 128.41±22.002 μm and 91.00+-32.41μm. The variance in body diameter of bothgroups, Schistosoma (S) mansoniand S. margreboweiewere statistically analyzed and found to be significantly different. (P < 0.1191). Bothgroups, Schistosoma (S)mansoniand S. margreboweiemeans and standard deviation of the cuticle thickness stood 8.50±1.20 μm and 6.70±4.10 μm respectively.Schistosomula of two groups, Schistosoma (S) mansoniand S. margreboweie resulted difference in cuticle diameter and found to be significantly same (P > 0.4841)
