<p>A, shown is the frequency of female adult worms presenting normal morphology (score 0, white bar), minor damage (score 1, green bar), significant damage (score 2, orange bar), extensive damage (score 3, red bar), or loss of content (score 4, purple bar). B, frequency of adult worms presenting no uterine microfilariae (score 0, purple bar), degenerated microfilariae (score 1, orange bar) or microfilariae with normal morphology (score 2, white bar) within the uteri. Adult worms were isolated 8 weeks post treatment end of jirds receiving oral gavages (OR) of flubendazole once (40mg/kg) or for five or ten consecutive days at 2, 6 or 15mg/kg or subcutaneous (SC) flubendazole injections once with 2mg/kg. The total number of female adult worms analyzed per group is indicated above each stacked bar.</p
