In vivo anti-parasitic effects of formalin-H2O2 combination on STS model induced by horizonal transmission. STS was induced by keeping healthy ascidians with severely diseased individuals until about 20 % of ascidians exhibit mild symptoms. Live parasite numbers were examined on surviving ascidians until day 14. Statistical significance was found between control and drug treatment in both trials (Fisher’s exact test for final mortality, p < 0.05). n = 55, Trial #1; n = 60, Trial #2
