Denver TMAU Test Lab survey click here
click to Read more/less

USA survey for anyone who wants to improve Denver TMAU test

begun : Dec22
end : no ending for now

A trainee genetic counselor is working at the Denver TMAU test lab. Probably as part of her training. As a project she wishes feedback on any aspect of the Denver TMAU test and process. You can fill in the survey and/or email her (email address is in survey). It's meant for USA people, but perhaps others can give their view too (as we have so few opportunities).

quote from her rareconnect post

"Hello all! I wanted to make you aware of a research study being conducted to better understand the experience and needs of individuals with trimethylaminuria with a goal of being able to create improved patient and healthcare provider education materials. Any participation is completely voluntary and all responses remain confidential. Feel free to use the contact information within the link with any questions or share the survey with others with TMAU."

MeBO’s financial update

Since MeBO Research’s inception four months ago on July 12, 2009, it has made every effort to stretch its very limited financial resources to carry out scientific study involving persons who suffer from body odor conditions. In our initial research effort, the MeBO-Biolab Gut Dysbiosis Study, we have already tested two volunteers, and are currently testing the third. In addition, MeBO is initiating a ‘thorough case study’ of another volunteer, as noted in our previous post in this blog, More about the MeBO-Biolab thorough case study in systemic body odor and/or halitosis.

These studies have been carried out under the supervision and advisement of MeBO’s expert, Dr. Irene Gabashvili , who has graciously dedicated her pro-bono services, and continues to generously offer her time to compile and organize MeBO’s test result data to later present its patterns along with her interpretation. We are also grateful to Biolab Medical Unit in London for allowing us to do the study by using their tests, and all their other cooperation.

How has MeBO paid for all this? Where have the funds come from? This study has been supported by Dr. Gabashvili and Biolab's help, sufferers donations both in the US and the UK, and by volunteer testers footing their respective testing costs. Without all of this generosity, MeBO would not have been able to gather data of test results, which has not only been of personal valuable to those tested, but also to the community as this information can potentially be used for future research.

As more test results become available with notable patterns, they will be analyzed, interpreted and presented by Dr. Gabashvili in this blog and in MeBO’s website.

It is MeBO’s next aim to extend this Gut Dysbiosis Study to be carried out in the United States by the first part of 2010, and eventually to other countries, making this an international effort.

What MeBO is doing

MeBO Research aims to become a charity focusing on systemic body odor and systemic sourced halitosis, particularly 'bowel smells' body door, since it is the most common. Any donations are welcome to primarily reach MeBO's aim of charity status. As a charity, MeBO can then pursue grants and endowments in order to carry out large-scale international studies.
