Necator americanus

As is well known, Necator americanus induces local traumatic bleeding in the 
gut of the infected individual which is enhanced by the anti-coagulants they 
produce. What I would like to know is if there are any parasitic 
nematodes that take advantage of this unfortunate effect, and if there are, 
does anyone know the approximate percentage of any population ie the U.S that 
are infected by these secondary parasites?
