Therapeutic potential of hookworm secreted molecules for the treatment of human autoimmune diseases

Indicative Funding
$299,564 over 4 years
Allergic and autoimmune diseases have a long-term impact on human health and cause substantial suffering in developed countries. Recent studies have provided evidence for the role/s of intestinal parasites in suppression of immunological disorders; however, treatment with living parasites is unfeasible. In the present research, advanced post-genomic technologies will be employed to identify, characterise and produce immunologically active parasite proteins, and test their role/s in the modulation of the immune response of mouse models of autoimmune diseases. The outcomes will set a basis for the identification of parasite proteins that are responsible for the suppression of pro-inflammatory immune responses.
