Faecal Microbiota Transplantation is used to restore intestinal bacteria with their normal density and diversity to ensure optimal intestinal functionality. This is the process of implantation of beneficial intestinal bacteria and yeast from a healthy donor into the large intestine of a person who lacks the necessary intestinal microflora necessary for the normal functioning of the digestive system.
Faecal Microbiota Transplantation is also known by the following names:
FMT has been shown to be more than 90% effective in treating various infections in patients who could not respond to antibiotic treatment. Besides, academic and medical research suggests that intestinal bacteria may play an essential role in alleviating symptoms:
The intestinal microbiotome was associated with many conditions and, as such, is the ideal moment for this new treatment. Currently, research and experimentation on the use and application of FMT are being conducted worldwide.
Providing the best implants is a big part of our work. The process begins with a healthy donor. We thoroughly test our donors and review a wide range of diseases. We advise them to follow the diet and closely monitor it to ensure that their intestines contain the optimal range of microbiota. Many microbiotas that are important 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.
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. Then we create implants that are placed in a quick freeze under laboratory conditions for later use. Samples are stored until we check donors to ensure continued safety and quality of the implants.
When the patient is ready to accept the implant, we deliver the sample through a small rectal catheter. The procedure Faecal Microbiota Transplantation takes only about one hour.
