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)

'Artificial' stool can cure C Difficle, report suggests

Mention has been previosuly made in the blog of the concept of 'fecal transplantation; being used to 'cure' forms of gut dysbiosis in the colon, most anecdotally being used for treatment of stubborn Clostridium Difficile infection. A team of researchers in Canada have gone a step further and 'purified' the fecal matter so that hopefully it contains all the 'good bacteria' (probiotics) and has a much lesser chance of carrying any possible infectious organisms. It seems to be at an early stage of development but already they seem to be having good results in anecdotal cases of c.difficle bowel infection. The synthetic stool is known as RePOOPpulate.

'Fecal Body Odor' : is gut dysbiosis a factor ?
Many people with what is commonly referred to as 'fecal body odor' often feel there is a 'gut dysbiosis' connection to their own condition, though currently it is not known what would be the cause of this dysbiosis if it is a factor.
Allen-Vercoe hopes doctors will one day use the RePOOPulate concept to treat other GI conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease, obesity and even autism by replacing abnormal gut microbial ecosystems.
