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

2nd tester's results in the MeBO-Biolab Gut Dysbiosis in systemic body odor and halitosis study

Currently, MeBO Research is carrying out a study with co-operation from Biolab Medical Unit to determine if people with body odor and/or halitosis have any gut dysbiosis condition as detected by the tests and biomarkers chosen. In our 2nd tester's test results, the biomarkers tested were ethanol for yeast small intestine overgrowth, some alcohols associated with anaerobic gut bacteria overgrowth, fatty acids associated with 'friendly' anaerobic gut bacteria, D-lactate which is associated with lactic acid overgrowth in the small intestine, indicans which is associated with protein bacteria fermentation, and a slight elevation of gut permeability.

The 2nd tester is a lady in her 50s who describes herself as having a sewage/garbage/rotten cabbage/sulfur/damp/dirty odor condition, which she has had for 10-20 years. She believes it is systemic. She has thrush issues, as well as issues with allergies/headaches, cystitis, and constipation. Her TMAU results were negative including the DNA test.

Her results are as follows (to be made into a table later) :

  1. intestinal permeability : Slightly increased permeability to PEG at the midrange level between mwt 374 to 506
  2. indicans : negative
  3. d-lactate : 156 umol/L (normal less than 60)
  4. gut fermentation Profile: raised ethanol fermentation consistent with yeast overgrowth as follows,
  • *ethanol 140 (normal would be less than 22)
  • *some anaerobic bacteria alcohol metabolites were slightly elevated
  • * quite a few 'friendly' bacteria fatty acids were low
More comments will be made on these results later.

The MeBO-Biolab survey is still open to anyone in the UK and Ireland with body odor and/or halitosis, preferably metabolic body odor and/or halitosis, even if you have been diagnosed positive for TMAU. Unfortunately, since MeBO has only just recently begun operating as a non-profit organization, the volunteers would need to pay their test costs (£146). The MeBO questions in the application/survey form are to collate data and look for patterns. Volunteer testers only need to give their name and email address to MeBO in this survey. The other private details will be handled by Biolab directly when you test.



The form to test in MeBO-Biolab Gut Dysbiosis Study is here :
MeBO-Biolab gut dysbiosis in body odor or halitosis study form-REVISED

MeBO is aiming to become a charity, which will cost approximately £1,500.00 to accomplish. Once it achieves this status, it will be in a better position to pursue grants for larger-scale research efforts not only in the UK but abroad as well. MeBO is looking to actively promote research into metabolic body odor and halitosis, especially fecal/gas/garbage body odors (as they are called on the forums). In the meantime, it will continue forward with such studies as this Gut Dysbiosis Study to gather data to identify common patterns amongst sufferers.

Another volunteer has offered to do a larger range of tests soon, which we will post about beforehand. This case study will cost quite a bit more. Biolab has offered a 25% discount for this single case study, and MeBO would like to cover some of this costs, seeing her testing as being for the good of the community. This volunteer wanted to pay for all her test costs, which would be approximately £400 at current estimates (the list of tests isn't confirmed yet), but MeBO would like to pay £125 of this expense. Any contributions towards this £125 target is appreciated. If anyone would like to donate in ways other than through PayPal, please feel free to contact Maria by email, meboresearch@gmail.com.
