Helminthic therapy TV references.

Recently, a friend called me to let me know that Grey’s Anatomy had a helminthic therapy reference. I checked it out, unfortunately, this is NOT the kind of reference we need (see embedded YouTube clip). Although I think that is the nightmare that some people have when they think about parasitic worms!

A much better inclusion of helminthic therapy in TV shows happened on the show House, season 6, episode 7, “teamwork” in which House solves a man’s Crohn’s using helminthic worms–strangely he had zero trouble finding them! Maybe he’s an AIT patient 🙂

House episode can be watched for free here (for as long as the link is hot)  http://www.cucirca.com/2009/11/17/house-season-6-episode-7-teamwork/
