Figure 2: EpiBr decreases worm growth in a concentration-dependent pattern (a), reaching its maximum effect at 4 days of in vitro during the whole culture time (b). EpiBr-treated parasites were motile and undamaged on the culture plate. Worm length was considered as the addition (mm) of scolex, neck, and strobila. In the concentration-response curves (panel (a)), cysticerci treated with vehicle are referred to as concentration zero. Data are represented as mean +/− SD. ** .
