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)

New TMAU urine tester at Sheffield UK Hospital

Nigel Manning retires

Sheffield Children's Hospital in the UK has for around 20 years been one of the few TMAU urine test labs in the world, due to the endeavor of lead Metabolic Clinical Scientist in their lab, Nigel Manning

Nigel for a long-time has been a friend to the community and MEBO. It was Nigel who set up the testing process for the TMAU urine test at Sheffield on his own initiative. An interview he kindly gave to this blog a few years ago can be read here : Interview with Nigel Manning

Today Sheffield also tests the FMO3 gene as a DNA test, one of the few clinical hospitals to do so in the world.

Our community and MEBO thank Nigel for all his help to our community and to MEBO. You could say he was a pioneer in enabling TMAU testing. Someday the TMAU test will likely be done at every metabolic testing lab in every 'metabolic testing' hospital worldwide, but today it is still only a handful.

New 'TMAU urine test' overseer at Sheffield : Joanne Croft

Happily the tradition of TMAU urine testing at Sheffield will continue under the instruction of the new Metabolic Lead Clinical Scientist : Joanne Croft.
