Detemination of copy number of nimE gene by Real-time PCR. (A) Standard curve, slope = −3.6 and R2 = 0.998 showing good efficiency. (B) Dissociation curve showing specific amplification of target (nimE gene) and NTC = No template control. (C) Absolute quantification of copy no. of nimE gene in Healthy vs E. histolytica positive samples. (D) Absolute quantification of copy no. of nimE gene in stool sample DNA of Healthy volunteers before and after satronidazole treatment. P value = .05 or below was considered significant. CI stands for confidence interval.
