UK residents survey : Prof Shephard/MEBO (until 31/1/21) click to visit survey
click to Read more/less

Prof Elizabeth Shephard is conducting a TMAU fact-finding survey for UK RESIDENTS. She plans to use it to raise awareness with decision-makers, such as perhaps MPs. It closes 31 Jan 21.

who is the survey intended for ?
UK residents who identify with TMAU

Living with TMAU study

We invite you to participate in a research project entitled ‘Living with TMAU’.

survey full url :
https://meboresearch.co.uk/index.php/living-with-tmau-lwtmau-study/

Participation in the project will involve completion of a short questionnaire, which aims to capture the experiences of those living with the condition. There are two questionnaires.

For individuals with TMAU over the age of 18

For a parent or guardian of a child with TMAU.

The results from the questionnaires will be compiled to produce a report that will be available for you to use, for example, to lobby your MP. The findings will be used to reach out to policy makers in the UK to have TMAU recognised as an invisible disability and to make people aware of what it is like to live with the disorder. The report will be made available on the MEBO, UK website.

To complete either questionnaire you must be over 18 and resident in the UK. The questionnaire responses are anonymous and no personal identifiers will be collected.

The questionnaire closes 11:59 pm (GMT) Sunday 31st January 2021.

MEBO Metabolic Malodor Survey (international) for Dr Hazen click here

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

1996 trimethylaminuria paper : What % of people would fail the trimethylaminuria urine test in a sample population ?

1996 pubmed paper: 3.8% fail the 90% trimethylaminuria urine test in a British sample of 421 people (Mitchell, Smith, Zhang - Imprerial College London)

Since there is no interest from the medical system in metabolic body odors and halitosis apart from some occasional studies into trimethylaminuria (There are 5 listed on pubmed for 'trimethylaminuria' this year. 10 last year. Most of little significance) done by researchers who study lots of other things. The only estimates used is probably a 'DNA estimate' by geneticists, who at the 1999 1st TMAU Workshop mentioned they thought maybe 1% could be at risk (it's unknown if they are going by the 'strict' interpretation, that all sufferers will be autosomal recessive e.g. homozygotes).

However, there was a substantial 'real' snapshop testing survey done amongst a sample 'normal' British population In 1996 at the Imperial college in London, by 3 researchers. They tested 421 students of Imperial College Medical School at St. Mary's, London using the TMAU urine test. In the UK, they define a 'fail' as being less than 90% TMA-N-Oxide produced, and less than 80% as being "indicative of potential heterozygous status for deficient N-oxidation-fish odour syndrome" (which is surprising to read, since if medical students were taught about TMAU, they would likely be taught it is autosomal recessive e.g. homozygous)

The results were:
421 of a UK sample population tested
16 failed the 90% test (3.8% : seven male, nine female)
6 failed the 80% test (1.4% : all female)

So in a sample British population, 3.8% failed the urine test. 1.4% were not near the borderline. Nowadays, some researchers feel that it will be likely that people can pass the urine test but fail the test "in vivo" (i.e. in practice). 2 of the researchers are well known for publishing TMAU papers (especially around that time and the following few years), although they both likely have many other lines of research, and this is the only part of metabolic body odor they will focus on whenever they choose to do research along this line.

It makes you wonder how, for example, a Body Odor & Halitosis Research and Treatment Center would have reacted to such a study at the time. And how far the issue would have progressed both in treatment and how governments and medical systems would now view the issue.
