Both parasitic worms (heminths) and HIV-1 have major implications for their host due to the longevity of the infection and the extensive affect these pathogens have on our immune system. The complex pathogen interactions in co-infected individuals make it difficult to determine the effect one pathogen has on the other, which is reflected by the contradictions reported in epidemiological studies. To gain a greater insight into this interaction, Emily Mouser studies HIV-1 infection in cells of the human immune system that have been pre-exposed to specific helminth antigen mixtures, comparing them to unexposed cells.
