As promised, I’ve got something a little left-field for the London-based of you: details of a range of new clinical trials, led by some of my colleagues at King’s College London and St Thomas’ Hospital.
It’s all about faecal microbiota transplants (FMTs) – the transplant of faecal matter donated by a healthy person into the large intestine of someone who is ill, to restore the balance of the microbiota in the latter’s gut. If you’re intrigued by the potential of this cutting edge treatment, we’d love it if you would consider taking part either as:
1️⃣ DONOR: if you’re in good health, you could give a poop sample to use in either the trials or treating those with resistant C.diff gut infections.
2️⃣ RECIPIENT: if you have liver disease or arthritis, and are seeking a potential solution, you could be eligible to take part in this novel treatment.
There are currently three clininical trials that you may want to take apart in:
If interested in taking part, please get in touch with Dr Blair Merrick ([email protected])
