Fecal Transplant in Treatment of IBD

By Brent Westra @brentwestra

While fecal transplant is a promising treatment for C. difficile infections, with success rates of over 90%, in 2013, there is currently no clear-cut evidence that fecal transplant works in the treatment of IBD and it should be undertaken only under research protocols.

However, Sahil Khanna, M.B.B.S., a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic specializing C. difficile infections, fecal transplant, and inflammatory bowel disease, discusses literature and clinical trials that will gather more data and better determine whether fecal transplant can be a viable treatment for IBD.
