Figure 2: Morphological changes in Babesia bovis (A) and Babesia divergens (B) treated with methanolic Olea europaea (MO) and acetonic Acacia laeta (AA). Light micrographs in an in vitro culture were taken after 24 (a) and 72 h (b). The arrows show abnormally dividing parasites observed at 24 h as compared to the piriform shape of normal control parasite (c), while drug-treated cultures showed higher numbers of degenerated parasites than did control cultures at 72 h.
