Applied Parasitology

The effects of parasitic worms  on the immune system is a recently emerging topic of study among immunologists and other biologists. Experiments involved a wide range of parasites, diseases and hosts. The effects on humans have been of special interest for the researchers. The tendency of many parasitic worms to pacify the host's immune response allows them to mollify some diseases while some worsening others.

Extensive research shows that parasitic worms have the ability to deactivate certain immune system cells, leading to a gentler immune response. Anthelmintics are drugs that are used to treat infections with parasitic worms.
