Parasitic Helminths Can Reduce The Susceptibility Of T-cells

Infection with parasitic helminths can reduce the susceptibility of T-cells to HIV-1 infection; according to a study Pathogens. Parasitic helminths such as Schistosoma mansoni (S. mansoni) have developed a number of strategies to evade, skew and dampen human immune responses, including the modulation of CD4+ T-lymphocyte responses. Since CD4+ T-lymphocytes are the main cell type infected with…
