Pinworms: Master Host Manipulators

Speaker: Matt Marturano N.D.


In this presentation we will review the coevolution of Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm) and human beings since prehistory and explore some unsettling new insights proposed by recent studies into multiparasitology and host manipulation.
