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

TMAU Test Program resumes July 5, 2016

I'm happy to announce that the MEBO TMAU Test Program will resume on July 5, 2016. Currently, MEBO has a wait list of approximately 230 persons who interested in doing this test, and each person on the list will be contacted in the order their requisition was received.

If you did not provide all the information requested by the online Requisition Form, please do so asap, or your name will be skipped until all others on the wait list have been worked.

United States shipments of these 230 persons will be processed first to expedite the process of clearing the wait list, followed by clearance of international shipment on the wait list. Afterwards, all new requisitions will be processed.In addition, only those applications that are completed with all the required information needed to obtain shipping cost information will be processed. If you did not provide all the information requested by the online Requisition Form, please do so asap, or your name will be skipped until all others on the wait list have been worked.

If you are interested in doing the MEBO TMAU urine test for $150 plus round trip shipping cost, please fill out the online Requisition Form, and your information will go on a list to be serviced after the current wait list is processed.

I have personally volunteered my time and administrative and billing services for this test process in order to keep test cost as low as possible. I hope that this low cost, high quality test will consequently be affordable to all sufferers who wish to know whether they have Primary TMAU or Secondary TMAU.

It would be nice to know how many people out of the 230 actually suffers from this condition. Also good for the medical records, I guess more awareness.

An approximate calculation of the 287 tests performed by MEBO is that approximately 5% of those tested received positive results for Primary TMAU, and approximately an additional 25 to 30% are positive for Secondary TMAU. A more precise calculation needs to be done to eliminate data from those who have tested more than once. These figures are not an exact calculation.

Hi Maria, I would like to know if some international sample is tested positive.

I'm from Italy, the urine sample will arrive intact and in good condition to be analyzed? I am afraid that the trimethylamine evaporate during transport.

Thank you in advance
