Quite a lot has now been written on the links (sometimes bad, often good) between gut worms and human health (especially auto-immune disorders). 

Here, some researchers seem to have identified a molecule in worms that might be the so-called 'active ingredient' at helping the gut / immune system axis work better.

Exciting times for medicine, it seems, as up to now, auto-immune diseases have been managed just symptomatically by medics.
