Core Tip Inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease are immune-mediated pathologies that remain a treatment challenge for gastroenterologists. Despite the recent introduction of novel therapies, notably biological agents and newer management strategies, there are still many patients who do not respond, or have a poor response to current treatments. Helminth therapy seems a promising pathway to newer drugs, because it has been proven to alter intestinal permeability, altering the host’s immune response to a Type 2 cytokine-mediated response in animal models and pre-clinical studies. This editorial aims to stimulate further research in this field, hoping for better care for our patients.
