Interesting article!
So it's rather the prazi being degraded by bacteria than the "flukes" becoming resistant. Based on this, praz treatment is best administered during TTM with sterile containers and fresh saltwater.
BTW, the same seems to apply to CP which also seems to be degraded by certain bacteria.

Hyposalinity treatment, as done against Cryptocaryon, should also put an end to most, if not all, flukes found on reef fish.
