Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT)

Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a procedure whereby donor fecal matter is placed into a patient’s gastrointestinal system in order to recolonize it with normal gut bacteria. The most common use for FMT is treatment of Clostridium difficile infections, particularly those that are recurrent or resistant to standard antibiotic therapy.
