Parasite Immunology

Parasite Immunology is a world journal dedicated to research on all aspects of parasite immunology in human and animal hosts. Emphasis has been placed on how hosts control parasites, and therefore the immunopathological reactions which happen within the course of parasitic infections. Extensive research shows that parasitic worms have the power to deactivate certain system cells, resulting in a gentler immune reaction. Often, such a response is useful to both parasite and host, consistent with Professor of Medical Microbiology Graham Rook of University College London. This immune "relaxation" is incorporated throughout the immune system, decreasing immune responses against harmless allergens, gut flora, and therefore the body itself. In their Parasite Immunology article on worms and viral infections, Dr. Kamal et al. explain why some parasitic worms aggravate the immune reaction. Because parasitic worms often induce Th2 cells and cause suppressed Th1 cells, problems arise when Th1 cells are needed. In the past, helminthic were thought to simply suppress T-helper Type 1 (Th1) cells while inducing T-helper Type 2 (Th2) cells. However, helminthic also regulate Th2-caused diseases, such as allergy and asthma.
