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)

Message from Karen - New Campaign

Read about the Raising Awareness Campaign

spearheaded by Karen in the UK. It's amazing!
Let's continue to support Karen in her hard work for us all!


Hi all,

Very soon, the research funded by the UK's Medical Research Council will get underway. We have an amazing team of scientists working on our behalf. They will be led by Dr Liz Shephard of University College London, who, as you know, has selflessly supported our community for many years.

Now that the research is finally about to take off, we need to ensure that it is able to be continued, and a therapeutic delivered to all sufferers, even after the MRC grant comes to an end. For this reason, we need to raise funds for the prolongation of this project immediately.

There is already a link on the MEBO Blog for people to make donations via Paypal to the 'MEBO For Trinzyme Project' directly. If you are wondering why the project is named Trinzyme, it is simple: Trinzyme is a company founded in the UK by a researcher dedicated to developing a TMAU therapeutic. This company will participate in the MRC funded research, and then, hopefully, continue it. However, more funding is needed to ensure that the momentum is not lost and that the project progresses. It is our community's hope that the research commencing now will continue evolving and that our scientists can delve further into investigating odour conditions.

At this point in time, we need to share ideas for fundraising. Not every suffer will be able to donate to the Mebo For Trinzyme Project, but maybe every sufferer can contribute by spreading the word about this project and by forwarding the link to potential donors.

If you would like to offer your ideas or skills, or become a part of the Mebo For Trinzyme Project fundraising committee, please let me know.

Best regards

Your currency will be automatically converted to USD or GBP by PayPal.

Option: pay with your credit card instead of PayPal account by clicking on either Donate button above.

Karen is currently working with other sufferers to develop a well-organized fund-raising campaign to support this TMAU Therapeutic Research project headed by Dr. Elizabeth Shephard. If you are interested in being a part of this very important project, please contact Karen or me at

My suggestion realize how lucky you are to have a diagnosis.......only people who HAVE tmau can advocate and popular tv shows email them numerous times a day.....get on a show ask for agencies that run the fundraisers for private charities.......its the rest of us without a diagnosis who not only need to fight for funding but also to be taken have a diagnosis, it is your leg to stand on..........use it!!!!!!!!!!

This might need to be the next webinar to get the word out more effectively . Its also past time for people with no diagnosis to recognize that these studies Do actually affect how the medical community views All malodor conditions more seriously ,not only TMAU. Jimi is asking for some documentation that legitimizes the need and use of donations . His and others rightful skepticism can be addressed by Trinzyme and MEBO perhaps in a video or webinar prior to our email campaign . I love what you folks are doing for us ,tmau and no tmau . Much respect and praise for your tireless efforts . All the best .

i did already realize those of us without diagnosis can help. i donated money to trinzyme out of my own pocket, and i stopped eating ALL foods and liquids for 2 weeks.....i consumed nothing but boost nutrition shakes and water, no morning coffee nothing, to see if diet would impact my odor just saying reaching the masses in the public and trying to raise money will unfortunatly fall on those of you with a diagnosis, until the people believe and respect those of us without a diagnosis.....i typed a letter to inform doctors in my state about the mebo websites and blog, and to get the tmau name out, and to advocate uncontrollable odor conditions do exist. i will begin sending them to every doctor in my state, i do not believe many people would donate money to me though....
