Fecal microbiota transplants (FMT), an emerging procedure treating large intestinal infections and bowel disorders, may help combat Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
The transplants have not been officially approved in the U.S. but have proven effective, without adverse consequences, at curing patients of bacterial infections known as C. difficile.
“It’s actually making people well,” said Dr. Enid Tayler, director of the Taymount Clinic in Hertfordshire, U.K., which specializes in FMT.
The procedure transplants donors’ healthy fecal bacteria into individuals suffering from gut infections.
Clinical studies have been launched evaluating FMT’s seemingly positive impact on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
