Fecal transplant, now in pill form
from MedPage Today
Gel caps containing concentrated fecal microbes stopped recurrent Clostridium difficile infection and were well-tolerated by recipients, researchers reported. Among patients with more than three episodes of recurrent C. difficile infection who could not tolerate jejunal catheter or suffered anal incontinence, a single dose of an oral suspension of fecal microbes delivered through several dozen 0.47 mL gel capsules resolved all but one of the recurrent infections with no instances of vomiting after capsule ingestion.
