Denver TMAU Test Lab survey click here
click to Read more/less

USA survey for anyone who wants to improve Denver TMAU test

begun : Dec22
end : no ending for now

A trainee genetic counselor is working at the Denver TMAU test lab. Probably as part of her training. As a project she wishes feedback on any aspect of the Denver TMAU test and process. You can fill in the survey and/or email her (email address is in survey). It's meant for USA people, but perhaps others can give their view too (as we have so few opportunities).

quote from her rareconnect post

"Hello all! I wanted to make you aware of a research study being conducted to better understand the experience and needs of individuals with trimethylaminuria with a goal of being able to create improved patient and healthcare provider education materials. Any participation is completely voluntary and all responses remain confidential. Feel free to use the contact information within the link with any questions or share the survey with others with TMAU."

$12 million NIH grant to Hazen lab for TMAO/microbiome research

$12 million grant from NIH.
Press release says first big grant from NIH into the gut microbiome.
to : Dr Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic.
research : How TMAO and microbiome affects Cardiovascular Disease.
why ? : Hazen et al put forward a new hypothesis in 2011, that TMAO damages the cardiovascular system.

Dr Stanley Hazen et al at Cleveland Clinic got a new big grant from the NIH to continue their research into TMAO causing CVD
Cleveland Clinic press release Nov 2019

What has this to do with Metabolic Body Odor  ?
It will lead to more research into TMA metabolism in humans, and probably therapies to inhibit TMA generation in the gut. 
This grant is wider in context than TMAO only. It will look at the microbiome.

The program will consist of three specialized projects and four supporting cores. The projects will:
- explore how newly identified gut microbial pathways affect thrombosis and atherosclerosis
- investigate how microbial metabolites act like hormones to drive disease in a high-fat environment
- and identify specific microbial genes and metabolites that are responsible for enhancing cardiovascular disease.
The three projects will be led by Drs. Hazen and Brown, both of Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute, and Dr. Michael Fischbach, of Stanford University. The four supporting cores will be led by Drs. Hazen, Brown, Wang and Hajjar, all from the Lerner Research Institute.
