Abstract

Parasitic worms (helminth) or their derivates can inhibit allergy and autoimmune diseases by inducing the activation of immune cells and thus the release of regulatory factors. A large number of animal experiments have shown that adoptive transfer of lymphocytes can protect against immune deregulation and have potential clinical applications. In this review, we discuss the research progress on the role of adoptive transfer of immune cells in worm-induced regulation of allergy and autoimmune diseases.
