MEBO Metabolic Malodor Survey (international) for Dr Hazen click here
click to Read more/less

survey for ANYONE who identifies with METABOLIC MALODOR

begun : Oct20
end : no ending for now

Regular readers will know that Dr Stan Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic are developing a TMA-blocker pill, as they proposed in a 2011 paper that TMAO is a factor in CVD. Recently Dr Hazen and colleagues contacted MEBO as they have always thought they could also help with TMAU. This survey is to give them an idea of the 'state of the community'. It is a "version 1". They may not even look (though they have access permission), but it could be useful to give them an overview of the community

MEBO had a zoom call with Dr Hazen and his team in October. Another zoom call is planned when they have time

This is a GOOGLE FORMS survey

Handbook of Drug Metabolism - Google Book Search

This is a respected book on the drug metabolizing enzymes (1999). The chapter on Flavin Mono Oxygenase enzymes is written by the well known respected FMO expert, Dr John Cashman of HBRI. Given that little research goes on with regards FMO, but more research has been done recently, it is unclear how up to date the chapter will be.

Of interest is where Dr Cashman says lowered FMO function is likely to be associated with other metabolic conditions since this doesn't seem to be the general impression given from medical websites/books. Google books has pages missing, but you can get a general sense of the enzyme from the chapter.

Edited by Thomas F. Woolf

Finally, the role of FMO in human disease conditions is certain to be studied in increasing detail in the future. The abrogation of human FMO3 has been associated with trimethylaminuria, but it is likely the variant forms of FMO are associated with other abnormal metabolic conditions because trimethylaminuria patients appear to suffer from a number of other disease states as well. With the emergence of new and sensitive selective molecular probe of human FMO, it is possible that a role of FMO in human disease conditions will be clarified... - the chapter on FMO enzymes from the Handbook of Drug Metabolism
