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

Ubiome MEBO study and Bloodtype

MEBO-UBIOME stool DNA study update
Ubiome kindly gave MEBO many Explorer Stool DNA test kits to try and profile our community for this test.

Professor Irene Gabashvili, PhD., MEBO Scientific Director is conducting the MEBO - UBIOME community study on people with METABOLIC MALODOR, other MALODOR types, and PATM.
The full paper will be completed soon.

As it draws to a close Irene can look at the stats and show points of interest.

In Irene's recent AURAMETRIX blog post, Irene has focused on BLOODTYPE among the MEBO community and the world average.

Current MEBO-Ubiome Study participant totals :

Each participant was allowed to get 4 free Ubiome Stool Explorer test kits.
43 returned all samples and completed the questionaire.
8 returned 1 sample.
40+ got kits but didn't do the questionaire.

It's not too late to complete the trial (for those who already signed up).
It's too late for new participants to take part.

Prof Irene's provisional stats on Bloodtype among the MEBO group.

Quote from Irene on the results
The most common blood type in the world is O+ (~36.4%). About 4.3% have blood type O-. Blood types A+, B+ and AB+ are prevalent at approximately 28.3%, 20.6% and 5.1% respectively. Percentages for A-, B- and AB- are 3.5%, 1.4% and 0.5%.
These percentages may differ by country, but it appears that A- and B- blood types are less prevalent in MEBO population, while O and AB are more common.

Symptom-less diet was also different for different blood group types. Average Quality of Life score was 83, 92, 95 and 91 for O, A, B and AB groups, respectively (best for B, then A, worst for O), while MEBO symptoms were also least severe and most controllable for B- type, but worse for those with A antigens. The widest variation in MEBO symptoms was in the AB group.
