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

UK Sheffield statement on TMAU urine test

Sheffield Children's Hospital is the only source in the UK for the TMAU urine/phenotype test.
Recently it was suspended with very little detail given.

UK support group website was notified on Friday about the new info.
A statement on the SCH website about the suspension

TMAU testing

Please note, due to analytical issues, the Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) laboratory service is temporarily suspended. This does not affect the clinical referral service.

We fully understand the importance of the Trimethylaminuria (TMAU) testing service and are committed to continuing it.

Since the founder of the service retired two years ago, we’ve invested in new staff for the service and purchased a new specialised testing machine.

Unfortunately we have had some technical issues in recent weeks and have temporarily suspended the service while repairs are made to the machine. We are doing everything we can to get the service up and running again as soon as possible, because we appreciate how much a reliable service matters to the patients we work with.

All the samples already sent us are being stored appropriately at -80 degrees and will be tested as soon as the testing service is restored.

In the meantime, we’ve written to the laboratories and doctors who request tests from us, letting them know about the testing services available outside the UK. We are also pushing through our networks for further testing centres in the UK, to ensure a more resilient service for patients requiring the test.

We hope to restore our own service shortly.

If you would like to be contacted when the service is restored, please give us your email address using this simple form.

Be notified by them when test restarts : Sheff TMAU test restart notification
