A non-aggressive strain of clostridium difficile reduces the risk of recurrence of C. difficile infection, according to a JAMA study released May 5. CDI is responsible for 29,000 U.S. deaths each year. It is one of the most common and deadly healthcare-related infections and clinical CDI has a recurrence rate of 25% to 30% among affected patients, the study stated.

Over a two-year period from 2011 to 2013, researchers randomly assigned 173 adult patients aged 18 or older diagnosed as having CDI to receive one of four treatments: oral liquid formulation of nontoxigenic C. difficile strain in three varied doses and durations, or placebo. Prior to enrollment, the patients had successfully completed treatment with metronidazole, oral vancomycin or both at 44 study centers in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
