Gastrointestinal diseases, such as Clostridium Difficile infection (CDI) are dangerous and serious. They affect thousands of Hong Kong residents, and hundreds of thousands of residents in other Asian cities. These patients are subjected to painful daily symptoms.
Scientists have uncovered the use of Human Microbiota Transfer therapy (also known as fecal microbiota transfer - FMT) as the most effective tool to treat recurrent CDI, and useful against other GI diseases. In this procedure, bacteria which have been derived from the fecal matter of a screened healthy donor is transplanted into a patient’s colon. The Asia Microbtioa Bank intensely screens donors and only accepts those who are in top health condition. We prepare the fecal microbiota solution in a laboratory of the highest standards before transferring the formulation to a clinician for transplant into a patient.
There is a wealth of information available online about HMT, most often referred to as Fecal Microbiota Transfer. Not all of the information is accurate or safe, so please use caution in your reading. We do not endorse DIY therapy HMT.
Safety is the highest priority for the Asia Microbiota Bank. In order to learn more about our safety screening and handling protocols, please email us directly.
If you are considering a HMT therapy as a patient, please consult with your doctor to determine if this is the right treatment for you. Currently, HMT to treat CDI is a well-established therapeutic application. For GI diseases other than CDI, there is ongoing research as to the safety and efficacy of HMT. If you are a patient interested in participating in a research program or clinical trial, please email us directly.
The Asia Microbiota Bank (AMB) prepares and supplies human microbiota implants for medical clinical use by licensed medical professionals. If you are a physician or medical doctor with a patient that would benefit from HMT, please consider joining the AMB Registered HMT Provider Network by sending us an email or giving us a phone call.
