My intention for writing "Brain Worms" was to explore the potential for using the cystic stage of the pork tape worm as a bioengineering tool. The basis of the story was a patient who had presented to my hospital some years back and the ensuing discussion amongst us physicians. It was remarkable how few symptoms he had from the multiple cyst in his brain. Apparently the human body tolerates the tapeworm cyst with very little inflammatory reaction, which would allow us to use it medically if we could genetically engineer the tapeworm to do our bidding.
