Young animals are generally considered to be more susceptible to nematode infection than adults [6, 32] due to immature active immunity and lack of adaptation in the young [6].

Most studies carried out among different ethnic groups stress a high prevalence of intestinal nematode infections (ascariasis, trichuriasis, hookworms, and strongyloidiasis), often affecting over half the village population, and moderate prevalence of cestode infections (mainly hymenolepiasis).
Root-knot nematode infections on certain hosts effectively predispose these roots to subsequent invasion by a range of other organisms present in the rhizosphere.
That's because the description of how hookworm larvae, for instance, get from the cat's mouth to the lungs to the small intestine might be "too much information." Then again, knowing that nematode infections can be zoonotic--meaning that we can get them from our cats--might make you curious.
While such deficiencies may not exist here, a growing resistance of parasites to chemical dewormers has piqued interest in alternatives to conventional treatments for nematode infections.
