Although studies suggest that soil-transmitted helminth (STH)-infections influence human papillomavirus (HPV) infection (once bitten), it is not known how STH infection influence how they then deal with repeated exposure to the virus (twice shy). Using established in vitro assays, pre-clinical models and human samples, the aim of this project is to determine the processes by which STH influence immunity to pathogenic viral infections.
