Inhibition of neutrophil recruitment by ES of Nippostrongylus brasiliensis

  It has been reported that excretory–secretory (ES) material from the parasitic nematode Nippostrongylus brasiliensis has potential modulatory effects on the host's immune system. We observed that intratracheal instillation of ES from the L3 stage of the parasite reduced neutrophil numbers in LPS-induced inflammation as assessed by bronchoalveolar lavage.
