Immunohistochemical staining illustrating active participation of microglia/macrophages in egg-injected mice model. No microglia/macrophages-formulated granuloma was detected in control (a). Granuloma (circle) was mostly composed of microglia/macrophages in egg-injected mice as indicated by specific IBA1 marker (b-d). Microglia/macrophages (arrow) acted as the first line immune cells in the battle against S. japonicum eggs (e-g)
