The C. Diff./Fecal Implants Story Finally Reaches Mass Media; We Had It Seven Weeks Ago

Finally — just now being reported (in a very long article) in the Health/Science Sections of The New York Times. Here was our December 1, 2012 posting on it (same study) — do go read all of the NYT story:

. . . .The treatment may sound appalling, but it works.

Transplanting feces from a healthy person into the gut of one who is sick can quickly cure severe intestinal infections caused by a dangerous type of bacteria that antibiotics often cannot control. . . .

The donors were tested for an array of diseases to make sure they did not infect the patients. Their specimens were mixed with saline in a blender and strained, to produce a solution that Dr. Keller said resembled chocolate milk. . . .




So it goes.
