Natural selection on individual variation in tolerance of gastrointestinal nematode infection

PLoS Biology

Jul 30, 2014

A D HaywardAndrea L Graham

Abstract

Hosts may mitigate the impact of parasites by two broad strategies: resistance, which limits parasite burden, and tolerance, which limits the fitness or health cost of increasing parasite burden. The degree and causes of variation in both resistance and tolerance are expected to influen...read more

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Anthelmintics

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Parasite Host Response
