Fecal Microbial Transfer

Antibiotics continue to be associated with many diseases and conditions -

As a result of antibiotic use, infections like Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) have become more prevalent.

"This increase in CDI has been accompanied by increasing rates of colectomy and death, with approximately 100,000 people dying annually in the USA with CDI, whereby the infection is at least one of the contributing factors to death."

"...the focus of FMT on repairing the most obvious severe damage induced by antibiotic medications in CDI could be only the first chapter in a much larger task. If some of the major diseases, such as the metabolic syndrome, IBD and other autoimmune conditions, are causally linked to microbiota dysfunction, FMT can be anticipated to have a role in therapeutic gut microbiota restoration on a society-wide scale."
