When white blood cells ATTACK: Amazing video captures moment the immune system takes down a parasitic worm

The timelapse footage was captured over a period of 80 minutes
It shows white blood cells from a mouse attacking a parasitic worm
Cells are known as eosinophils and the worm is Caenorhabditis elegans
Within an hour, the study said ‘thousands’ of cells had attacked the worm
In a second clip, the worm is seen escaping the cells' clutches
