New US Company (Mikrobex) to Supply Prescreened Stool to Doctors for Fecal Transplants
Interest is certainly growing and fecal tranplants are gaining traction as an effective treatment for many digestive disorders (and potentially non-GI illnesses).
A US startup company (Mikrobex) is now planning to supply doctors with pre-screened fecal matter in an easy to use form to make the process of performing fecal tranplants/human probiotic infusions much easier. This is sure to make it viable for doctors to use the treatment routinely rather than just as a last resort.
Read me in this article:
Company website: www.enterome.com/… 'projects' tab:
1/ Drugs: Enterome is developing drugs inhibiting long term deleterious effects of altered microbiota (i.e.alterations in gut permeability).
www.fiercebiotech.com/story/industry-voices-microbiome-therapies-coming-clinic-near-you/… the article:
"For full disclosure, at PureTech Ventures we strongly believe in this field, too, and have started new company initiatives to mine this space including this company." (Note: "this company" is www.vedantabio.com/).
About the difference between the two products .
Maybe indeed they use different donors. and maybe do different screening.
It will be a big difference in the microbial composition.
medcitynews.com/2012/02/look-beyond-the-ick-factor-and-see-the-real-life-saving-benefits-of-stool/comment-page-1/… are some comments from one of the founders, Mike Berman.
Hard to tell what the difference between the two products would be....if there is a difference at all. I suspect they are very similar and the only real variable that could affect effectiveness would be the donors they are using.
also from Minnesota.
I wander what is the difference between the two? maybe different microbial composition ?
