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

Reply to Raising Awareness Mailout

Thanks to everyone who took part in e-mailing the UK Health MPs.
The reply I received is below:

Dear Ms James,

Thank you for your correspondence of 28 November about Trimethylaminuria (TMAU). I have been asked to reply.

I appreciate your concerns about the strategies in place for dealing with rare diseases such as TMAU.

The Department is committed to increasing awareness of rare conditions such as TMAU, and that commitment has been demonstrated through the UK’s involvement in theUK Plan for rare diseases. The Plan will set out a coherent and joined-up approach to tackling rare diseases and will bring together a number of recommendations designed to improve the co-ordination of care and to lead to better health outcomes for everyone with a rare disease. It will also acknowledge existing developments, such as the contribution that expert centres can make to better diagnosis and treatment of rare diseases, while proposing a number of further developments, such as better information for patients so that they can be fully engaged and helped to understand and manage their conditions.

The Plan will include recommendations, actions and examples of best practice for commissioners of specialised services, Royal Colleges, information providers and front-line staff who deliver care to people with rare diseases. In England, much of the implementation of the Plan will be for NHS England in its role as a single national commissioner of specialised and highly specialised services.

You may therefore wish to contact NHS England for further information on the implementation of the Rare Disease Plan and how this may affect services for TMAU. You can contact NHS England by email at or by post at the following address:

I hope this reply is helpful.

Yours sincerely,

Jane S.


It would be a good gesture if people from our community e-mailed the MRC to express our thanks for the TMA research grant
It would be a good gesture if people from our community e-mailed the MRC to express our thanks for the TMA research grant. This would still be a raising awareness campaign and an excellent follow-up to the original campaign requesting the grant.

Many thanks and have a great Christmas holiday,
