Table 1 Total cellular histamine content in the blood of S. mansoni-infected individuals, pre- and post-treatment, and in non infected individuals.

From: Changes in IgE- and Antigen-dependent histamine-release in peripheral blood of Schistosoma mansoni-infected Ugandan fishermen after treatment with praziquantel

  Median total cellular histamine content (ng/ml)
pre-treatment (N = 32) 81.0 (43.5 – 97.0)
1 day post treatment (N = 29) 108.0 (85.5 – 145.5)
21 days post-treatment (N = 25) 160.5 (83.8 – 278.8)
non-infected (N = 8) 179.0 (163.0 – 248.5)
  1. Median total cellular histamine content, expressed as ng/ml blood, from S. mansoni-infected individuals, and from non-infected individuals. Total cellular histamine content was measured in whole washed blood of each S. mansoni-infected individuals at pre-treatment, 1-day or 21-days post-treatment, and in each non-infected individuals at the same time as 21-days post-treatment. Numbers in brackets are 25% and 75% percentiles, respectively.
