Success of fecal transplant is conditioned by intestinal mycobiota

Proliferation of an opportunistic yeast in the intestines could be the cause of fecal transplant failure in the treatment of Clostridium difficile infections. Outcome might be improved by reversing fungal dysbiosis.   In ten years, fecal microbiota transplants (FMT) have led to recovery r...

Bacteriophages play a key role in the eradication of Clostridium difficile

Treatment of Clostridium difficile infections was given new momentum by the progress of fecal microbiota transplants. Researchers from the University of Hong-Kong have demonstrated the little-known role of bacteriophages in this procedure.   Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) has demonstra...

Fecal transplant: sustainable colonization

Fecal transplant sustainably changes the intestinal microbiota in patients with recurring Clostridium difficile infection.   That is what American researchers have concluded  after monitoring for a period of two years patients who had received a fecal microbiota transplant (FMT). Unt...
