This is especially problematic because it is expected that such a mechanism may occur during the most severe infections by Ascaris, which are supposed to be the majority inducers of immunoregulation. However, it should be mentioned that cytokines such as TNF-alpha, IL-13, and IL-17, which are central mediators of allergic I. 9,140 It can be speculated that the highly Ascaris-resistant population (whether atopic or not) may also overreact with this cytokine-mediated defense mechanism, causing tissue damage and increasing the severity of pulmonary symptoms.
