The growth inhibition of methanolic V. tricolor and acetonic L. nobilis on B. microti in vivo. Inhibitory effect of MEVT and AELN on the growth of B. microti in mice, based on observations taken from five mice per experimental group. The arrow indicates 5 consecutive days of treatment. Asterisks indicate statistically significant (p < 0.05) differences of parasitemia between treated groups and the untreated control group based on one-way ANOVA Tukey’s test using GraphPad Prism version 5.0 for Windows (GraphPad Software Inc., San Diego, CA, USA). Parasitemia was calculated by counting iRBCs among 2000 RBCs using Giemsa-stained thin blood smears. The data were the mean and standard deviation from two separate experiments
