Summary of "The NET Effect of Neutrophils during Helminth Infection."

Recent studies show that neutrophils mediate both tissue damage and host protection in response to multicellular parasites. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Bouchery et al. demonstrate the importance of neutrophil extracellular traps in helminth damage after primary infections.

Helminth Infections Suppress the Efficacy of Vaccination against Seasonal Influenza.

Helminth parasites infect more than a quarter of the human population and inflict significant changes to the immunological status of their hosts. Here, we analyze the impact of helminth infections on ...

An investigation into the role of chronic Schistosoma mansoni infection on Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine induced protective responses.

Schistosoma mansoni is one of the most common helminth infections affecting a large population of people in sub-Saharan Africa. This helminth infection is known to cause immunomodulation which has aff...

Linking the effects of helminth infection, diet and the gut microbiota with human whole-blood signatures.

Helminth infection and dietary intake can affect the intestinal microbiota, as well as the immune system. Here we analyzed the relationship between fecal microbiota and blood profiles of indigenous Ma...

IRAK1 and IRAK4 signaling proteins are dispensable in the response of human neutrophils to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.

The involvement of neutrophils in the host response to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection is not as well recognized as the involvement of macrophages and dendritic cells. Thus, this study give...

Infection with a small intestinal helminth, Heligmosomoides polygyrus bakeri, consistently alters microbial communities throughout the murine small and large intestine.

Increasing evidence suggests that intestinal helminth infection can alter intestinal microbial communities with important impacts on the mammalian host. However, all of the studies to date utilize dif...

Impact of Helminth Infections During Pregnancy on Humoral Vaccine Immunogenicity in Infants

Helminth infection is associated with low vaccine immunogenicity. Pregnant women are particularly sensitive to helminth infection. Since most vaccines are given shortly after birth, an ef...

Empiric Therapy of Helminth Co-infection to Reduce HIV-1 Disease Progression

Abstract: Over 25 million HIV-1 infected individuals are currently living in Africa and as many as 50-90% may be co-infected with soil transmitted helminths such as roundworms, hookworms ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any part or derivative of a helminth that elicits an immune reaction. The most commonly seen helminth antigens are those of the schistosomes.

The genetic complement of a helminth (HELMINTHS) as represented in its DNA.

Proteins found in any species of helminth.

Helminth infection of the lung caused by Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis.

Antibodies produced by human or animal cells following clinical or experimental exposure to parasitic HELMINTH ANTIGENS. The IMMUNOGLOBULIN E class of immunoglobulins is usually formed and released, but IMMUNOGLOBULIN G; IMMUNOGLOBULIN M; and IMMUNOGLOBULIN A may also occur.
