Fecal bacteriotherapy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fecal microbiota transplantation ( FMT) also known as a stool transplant is the process of transplantation of fecal bacteria from a healthy individual into a recipient. A limited number of studies have shown it to be an effective treatment for patients suffering from Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), which produces effects ranging from diarrhea to pseudomembranous colitis.
