 en The Pro-allergic Influences Of Helminth Parasites
Pritchard, David I.

Abstract

Parasitic infection is highly allergenic, and the present paper illustrates how parasites might disrupt the regulation of IgE synthesis, resulting in heightened Th-2 responses. The study of parasites, and dysregulation of the IgE ntwork, could in turn provide information relating to the aetiology of allergic diseases such as asthma and atopic dermatitis.

Keywords
