Fecal microbiota transplantation is proving successful at treating Clostridium difficile infections, according to a recent study in the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
The study, published online June 3, focused on immunocompromised patients — a population particularly vulnerable to CDI, according to researchers. Among the 80 patients studied, which included five pediatric patients, 36 had inflammatory bowel disease, 19 had received organ transplants, seven had cancer, three had AIDS or were HIV-positive and 15 had other medical conditions or were taking other medications, according to the study. The follow up range post-transplant was between three and 46 months.
