  1. Thanks for the great episode.. I just want to sat that IgA molecule could not activate the complement system (in contrast to IgM and IgG) hence the complement system does not work efficiently in the lumen of the gut although there is little secretory IgM and IgG.
  2. Hi again. I really like this podcast. I just came home from Thailand with a stomach bug that everyone around me (none of which are trained medical professionals of course) believes is giardia, so of course I listened to that episode first. Anyway, as awesome and inclusive as this episode was in terms of defining and classifying parasites no plant parasites were mentioned! Of course I know that this is primarily a medical podcast, but it would've been neat to hear a sentence or 2 about the fact that plants can also act as parasites (e.g. the hemiparasitic genus Pedicularis). I'm grateful for this free entry into the world of parasites, thanks so much.
