Although I was familiar with the work Nottingham was doing with hookworm against allergies and asthma I hadn't heard about a trial for MS. That is interesting, thanks.

John Fleming's team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has a $458,000 grant from the NMSS to investigate T suis (swine whipworm) against MS. Evidently the initial 5 person safety study went well because I notice they've gone onto the next phase http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00645749
