Hello All:

The New York Times recently reported that worms were given to 6 patients in an attempt to reverse the immune response they were mounting against their own intestinal tissues from a Th1 response to a Th2 response.  All 6 patients benefited from the worm therapy.  If you are interested in the article, you may find it at the following url:

I would be interested to hear what others think of both the therapy itself (following informed consent) and the thinking that led to this effort.

Regards,

Steve Kayes
