FMT in the “Real World”

At DDW 2016, OpenBiome presented data (abstract Su1737) from 2,050 patients who received fecal microbiata transplants (FMT) in “the real world.”

Key findings:

  • Overall, 84% clinical cure rate with a single treatment
  • 85% of patients were treated with FMT via colonoscopy (250 mL) and 15% via nasal tube (50 mL). Nasal tube administration had a lower clinical cure rate of 77.9%, compared with 85.1% who had FMT via colonoscopy.
