Researcher Dr Padraic Fallon said: "This study is particularly exciting as it harnesses how the worm modifies immunity in our bodies to stimulate protection from undesirable inflammation.
"There is a clear potential to build new treatments for major disease of man using this approach.
"In effect I see the worm as the 'drug cabinet' of the future."
** Worm eggs may tackle inflammation **
Eggs from a parasitic worm may hold the key to treating conditions such as lung diseases and psoriasis.
