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

current participants : 113 (update 18dec20)

Our TMAU Service Dog's Progress in videos

It is with great pleasure that I introduce our TMAU Service Dog, Dray in action performing scent alert work, with his volunteer handler, Charlotte, and his Master Trainer, Liz Norris. You are welcome to visit our new TMAU Service Dog Blog, in which we are documenting Dray’s progress, as well as any other future Service Dog we may acquire to help us in our efforts to identify and control the various body odor conditions. I hope you will enjoy the numerous videos Charlotte and Liz have taken for us so that we may witness Dray’s development. The Service Dog puppy, Vallie, who attended our Nashville meet-up in March 2010 is also in a few of these videos, as she’s being trained to be a Diabetic Alert Service Dog. When you visit this blog that has 36 posts, I recommend that you read at least the first 4 or 5 of them so that you can get a good feeling of the progress taking place.
...he may also help us discover odors that may not have yet been identified and classified as Dray follows the command to ‘find another’ of the same scent.
I’m happy to say that Dray has made great strides not only in alerting for various previously identified scents, but he may also help us discover odors that may not have yet been identified and classified as Dray follows the command to ‘find another’ of the same scent. Liz clearly explains in one of the videos how this can potentially help us isolate, study, identify and classify our various odor types with the help of a Service Dog to then better assist scientists design more on target research endeavors. Dray and other trained Service Dogs can also help a sufferer determine how much time he or she has between the dog’s detection/alerting and when humans begin to detect the odor. Keeping in mind that some humans will detect odor much sooner than other humans, while others may never detect it at all, it will be wonderful to be able to document this phenomena, probably for the first time ever. Thankfully, this will help sufferers learn to manage an odor flare-up with greater control, as this window of opportunity is better identified by an SD, helping us understand it, and to explore and develop management techniques in an effort to help the sufferer avoid embarrassing situations.
