Is Helicobacter Pylori infection inversely associated with atopy? A systematic review and meta‐analysis
The role Helicobacter Pylori (H. pylori) infection plays in the aetiology of atopy remains unclear, although a possible protective role has been hypothesized.

Parasitic helminths have been shown to reduce inflammation in most experimental models of allergic disease, and this effect is mediated via cytokine responses. However, in humans, the effects of
Parasites and allergy: Observations from Brazil
TLDR
The observations from Brazil concerning the relationship between parasite infections and allergy are discussed and factors determining the epidemiology of these infections that vary between populations are discussed.
Helminth infections, atopy, asthma and allergic diseases: protocol for a systematic review of observational studies worldwide
TLDR
The objective of the current systematic review will be to provide an up-to-date synthesis of findings of observational studies investigating the influence of helminth infections on atopy, and allergic diseases.
Parasitic worms and allergies in childhood: Insights from population studies 2008–2013
The last few decades have seen a marked increase in the global prevalence of allergic diseases particularly among children. Among the factors attributed to this rise has been reduced exposure to
Soil‐transmitted helminth parasites and allergy: Observations from Ecuador
TLDR
Findings are discussed of studies done of the effects of STH parasites on atopy and allergic diseases in Ecuador that indicated a potential role of STh in contributing to more robust regulation.
Parasites and allergy: Observations from Africa
TLDR
Observations from population studies carried out in Africa over the last decade that focus on the relationship between helminth infections and allergy‐related outcomes are examined and how these findings advance understanding of the complex interactions betweenHelminths and allergies at the population level is explored.

This data indicates that atopy in traditional societies has been attributed to high parasite‐driven blocking IgE concentrations, and this work aims to clarify the relationship between atopy, IgE and intestinal helminth infection in African populations.

TLDR
The relationship between intestinal helminth infection and atopic disease is controversial, and this relation has not been tested in an area with a high burden of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection, a known Th1‐stimulating infection.
Parasite infections and the risk of asthma and atopy
TLDR
The primary function of the allergic response may be as part of an anti-parasitic protective mechanism, and allergic disease may be the undesirable reaction towards otherwise inoVensive environmental substances.
