Helminth protein

A helminth protein, or helminthic antigen, is a protein derived from a parasitic worm that causes an immune reaction. The most commonly seen antigens of this sort are derived from the schistosomes.

Helminth proteins may be used to develop antibodies in animals and humans to protect against parasitic infections.
