Parasitic helminths, or worms, comprise a diverse group of metazoan organisms that infect billions of people and domesticated animals. Most of the parasites by the nature of their continuous contact with the immune system, generate a prolific immune response. Many of the parasitic worms have complex multistage life cycles that involve several hosts. Parasitic worms have the ability to deactivate certain immune system cells. Nonspecific and genetic factors are clearly important but are still undefined participants in the host response. The immune respopnse may be pathogenic by including hypersensitivity, immunologically mediated fibrosis,or circulating immune complexes.
