Otros trabajos se han realizado utilizando proteinas de excrecion/secrecion de Ancylostoma sp como posible candidato vacunal, se han medido los efectos de la combinacion de antigenos ASP2 y la metaloproteasa 1 en hamsters infectados y enfermos con Ancylostoma ceylanicum, estas fueron clonadas y expresadas en Pichia pastoris y cuando se inmunizaron animales con esta proteina se encontraron altos titulos de IgG para ASP-2 (1:62,850) y anti MTP1 (1:151,356) los cuales disminuyeron a traves del tiempo.
