Development of bioactive peptides from the parasitic hookworm as potential treatments for autoimmune diseases
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-06)
Hookworms are parasitic nematodes that reside in the intestines of their host, where they feed on host blood. The large number of infected individuals and the long survival time inside the host makes it interesting to study the immunomodulatory activities of the hookworms.
