Research Study: A Pilot Study to Evaluate Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Jeffrey Roberts posted a topic in IBS Discussion and SymptomsResearch study: A Pilot Study to Evaluate Fecal Microbiota Transplantation in Irritable Bowel Syndrome Location: Boston, Massachusetts Inclusion Criteria: IBS with diarrhea The study is to evaluate whether we can change the microbiome of individuals with IBS using a healthy donor. We then would like to see whether if we are able to change the microbiome, if there's a resulting improvement in symptoms. We randomize people to receive either a fecal transplant or a placebo fecal transplant. People are also receiving an antibiotic either rifaximin, a combination of Cipro/flagyl or no antibiotic as a pre-treatment. The capsule form of fecal matter transplant (FMT) is being used.
