S. japonicum egg injection-induced pathological process in mice. (a-d): Injection site response resolved in egg-free control group, leaving puncture path visible (arrow). Granuloma formation (circle) initiated on day 3, peaked on day 7 and subsided after day 14 (e-h). Inflammatory infiltrate can be observed surrounding the eggs (asterisk) (i-k). Egg disintegration occurred on day 14 (g, k) and elimination on day 30 (h). Unviable S. japonicum eggs (asterisk) without inducing immune response can be found on day 30 (l)
