Home>Helminthic therapy research

This page lists papers and reports of scientific studies relating to helminthic therapy and closely related topics such as the Hygiene Hypothesis, the Old Friends' Hypothesis, Biome Depletion Theory and Evolutionary Mismatch Theory.

There are four organisms being used currently in helminthic therapy.

Some of the reports and papers listed below have focussed on the effects of other species of helminth, or molecules derived from them, but all are nevertheless valuable for the insights they provide about the therapeutic effects of helminths.

Unless otherwise stated, the main links are to PubMed abstracts, with additional inks to full text copies and PDFs, if available. Where free full text copies are not available via PubMed, these can usually be obtained from other sources such as Sci-Hub and the Facebook group, Get Your Papers. Further papers on helminthic therapy can be found by searching PubMed, which carries almost all of the scientific papers written on this subject.

Reading packet

These selected papers provide a good overview of the potential of helminthic therapy and would be suitable resources to include in a reading packet to be given to a doctor or someone who is unaware of the evidence and rationale for helminthic therapy. The first two papers provide validation for the practice of self-treatment with helminths.

Research papers & articles[edit]

Tips for searching the list

Note: Expand the full list using the More papers... link below before searching for symbols or text.

Symbols used in the list of documents:

  • ✅ - A key paper/report in the development of the therapeutic use of helminths
  • ⚡ - A good place to start if you are new to helminthic therapy, or if you are looking for resources that would help someone else to understand the therapy.

If you are interested in helminthic therapy in relation to a particular medical condition, use your device’s search function to locate the items that are relevant to that disease. Several conditions will require the use of more than one search term, for example:

  • Allergies - search for “allerg”, “atopy” and “anaphylaxis”
  • Anemia - search for “anemia” and “anaemia”
  • Arthritis - search for ”arthrit” and “joint”
  • Asthma - search for “asthma”, “airway” and “wheeze”
  • Autism - search for “autism” and “ASD”
  • Celiac disease - search for “celiac” and “coeliac”
  • Crohn’s disease - search for “Crohn”, “bowel” and “IBD
  • Diabetes - search for “diabet”, “insulin”, “glucose” and “metabolic syndrome”
  • Heart disease - search for “cardio” and “atherosclerosis”
  • Inflammation - search for “inflam”
  • Leaky gut - search for “barrier”
  • Multiple sclerosis - search for “multiple sclerosis” rather than “MS
  • Obesity - search for “obes” and “adipose”
  • Pregnancy - search for “preg” and “mater”
  • Ulcerative colitis - search for “colitis”, “bowel” and “IBD

Take part in the research[edit]

If you have used helminths to treat one of the conditions for which they have been less commonly employed, such as lupus, migraine headaches or a neuropsychiatric disorder, and whether or not this has proved successful, please consider taking part in the Helminth Self-treatment Survey.
