Can someone provide a simple explanation of the effect of parasitic
infection on IgA?
 
My understanding is that low-level infection raises IgA levels.
(http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11379439)
 
Is this accurate?  And if so, do you have any supporting evidence you
might share?
 
Many thanks in advance for any assistance you may provide.
