Schistosomiasis is a chronic parasitic disease that affects approximately 200 million people. In Schistosomiasis japonica and mansoni, parasite eggs were trapped in host liver and stimulated the CD4(+)T cell responses to regulate the formation of the granulomas. Subsequently, excessive granulomatous
