Parasitic worms could provide the key to finding cures for asthma and other allergies, according to new research.

I wonder if this new finding might have something to do with the fact that IgE has two known functions----to fight off parasites and to produce allergic reactions. Maybe if IgE is busy with its proper function (fighting off parasites) the immune system is less likely to go into allergic mode.
