FOR PATIENTS CONSIDERING HUMAN MICROBIOTA THERAPY

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 or contact us directly so that we may refer to you to a qualified medical professional for your consultation.

 

Human Microbiota Therapy (HMT) has been used as a therapy for gastrointestinal diseases for decades, but only recently has become the object of focused study and application. Currently, fecal microbiota transplant or HMT is being used in dozens of countries around the world, including the US, UK, Australia and Israel, as a treatment for Clostridium Difficile infection (CDI). FMT is generally effective more than 90 percent of the time as a treatment for CDI. In the US, the FDA has allowed clinicians to provide FMT to recurrent C. difficile patients.

 

Currently, FMT is also being researched as a treatment for many gastrointestinal related diseases, including Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and other chronic digestive diseases. Medical clinics and FMT treatment centers in the UK and Australia have reported cases of successfully treating these diseases and conditions.
