Faecal Microbiota Transplantation is the implantation of beneficial intestinal bacteria and yeast from a healthy donor into the large intestine of a person who lacks the intestinal microflora necessary for the normal functioning of the digestive system.

Other names for Faecal Microbiota Transplantation are the following:

  • Faeces transplantation
  • Human Probiotic Infusion
  • Faeces bacteriotherapy
  • Rehabilitation therapy of microbiota
  • Stool Donation
  • Poo Transplant

FMT is more than 90% effective in treating various infections in patients who could not respond to antibiotic treatment.



Symptoms

Besides, academic and medical research suggests that intestinal bacteria may play an essential role in alleviating symptoms:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis)
  • Constipation
  • Chronic diarrhoea
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome – IBS (post-infectious, post-antibiotic)

Neurological conditions, such as:

  • ME (myalgic encephalopathy)
  • CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)
  • MS (multiple sclerosis)
  • Parkinson’s disease

Faecal Microbiota Transplantation in our clinic

The intestinal microbiotome is associated with many conditions and, as such, is the ideal moment for this new treatment. Besides, providing the best implants is a big part of our work. Thus, the process begins with a healthy donor. Moreover, we thoroughly test our donors and review various diseases. We also advise them to follow the diet and closely monitor it to ensure that their intestines contain the optimal range of microbiota.

Many important microbiotas for good intestinal health have a limited lifespan when exposed to oxygen or other environmental factors. So we collect donor material in deoxygenated conditions and transport it back to the laboratory in an isolated container with sterile saline.

Implants

After returning to the laboratory, the stool sample is treated with a temperature-controlled and nitrogen-rich medium to separate the microbiota from the food waste item.

When the patient is ready to accept the implant, we deliver the sample through a small rectal catheter. In addition, the procedure of Faecal Microbiota Transplantation takes only about one hour.
