Hookworm treatment for relapsing multiple sclerosis - a randomised double-blinded placebo controlled trial (2020)
Journal Article
Tanasescu, R., Tench, C. R., Constantinescu, C. S., Telford, G., Singh, S., Frakich, N., …Pritchard, D. I. (in press). Hookworm treatment for relapsing multiple sclerosis - a randomised double-blinded placebo controlled trial. JAMA Neurology,

Importance: Studies suggest gut worms induce immune responses that can protect against multiple sclerosis (MS). There are no controlled treatment trials with helminth in MS. Objective: To determine whether hookworm treatment has effects on MRI acti...
