Title:
Adverse events in faecal microbiota transplant: a review of the literature.
Authors:
Baxter, Melissa; Colville, Alaric
Abstract:
Faecal microbiota transplant (FMT) is the infusion of donor faeces into the gut with the aim of improving microbial diversity. The procedure has gained significant interest recently in the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI). The literature is currently dominated by small case series and isolated case reports. There is no standardization of methods and recording of outcomes.
