Among the diverse pathogen species known to cause morbidity and mortality in humans, parasitic helminths are by far the most prevalent but least understood. The current estimates of more than one billion people worldwide who are infected with one or more helminth (worm) species is clear evidence that basic and applied research focused on these pathogens is urgently needed for global human health. Moreover, basic science studies using helminth-based experimental systems have led to remarkable discoveries of new cell lineages and novel molecular and cellular pathways. It is clear that a vigorous dialogue needs to be instigated among clinicians, scientists and lay persons living in both endemic and non-endemic countries with the aim of solving the current barriers that result in helminth infection-induced morbidity across the globe.
