my old micro professor told us they did this for c. diff, but her terms were "fecal transplant" haha..this sounds so much better
"There is no clear (or evidence-based) consensus regarding the most appropriate form of delivery for the fecal microbiota transplant. There have been successful results, defined as clearance of diarrhea, or negative C. difficile toxin assays, with FMT administered to the proximal colon via colonoscope, the distal lower GI tract via enema/rectal tube, and the upper GI tract via nasogastric (NG) tube/gastroscope"i wonder why they infused into the duodenum instead of farther down. isn't everything ahead of the ic sphincter supposed to be kind of sterile? or is that why they did it there?
