The data presented here were collected from in vitro culture of M. perstans microfilariae, while asssessing the ability of two basic culture media; Dulbecco’s Modified Eagle’s Medium (DMEM) and Roswell Park Memorial Institute (RPMI-1640) supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS) and a monkey kidney epithelial cell line (LLC-MK2) to support the survival of this parasite stage; and their sussceptibility to chemotherapeutic agents. Parasites motlity were scored daily on a 4 scales system, and the average motility computed, as well as the area under the motility curve. Mortility was determined as the percentges of imotiled worms.
