Advances in hookworm immunoepidemiology are reviewed. Recent studies demonstrate a mixed Th1/Th2 response in human hookworm infection, with immunosuppression of specific and nonspecific IFN‐γ responses. There is increasing evidence for protective immunity in human hookworm infection, including anti‐larval IL‐5‐ and IgE‐dependent mechanisms, and for immunological interactions between hookworm infection and other diseases.
