Butler Brown Bag Series for Faculty Research, Scholarship, and Creative Work
“The Route to Palatable Fecal Microbiota Transplantation”
Presented by Hala Fadda (Pharmaceutical Sciences)
Tuesday, September 17
12:30-1:30 p.m.
Atherton 326

The American College of Gastroenterology recommends fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) for the treatment of recurrent Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) in patients who have failed to respond to antibiotic treatment. In FMT, stool from a healthy donor is transferred to a patient to restore the gut microbial ecosystem. Hala Fadda will discuss how she contributed to the development of a colon-targeted, oral FMT delivery system to enhance FMT efficacy and safety. In a multi-center, open-label dosing finding study in patients with recurrent CDI, the multi-disciplinary team observed a clinical cure rate of 89% with this novel colonic release FMT delivery system.

Students, staff, and faculty all welcome. No RSVP required.
