Beth Mole reports on the crappy downsides of FMT

https://arstechnica.com/science/2019/06 ... t-warning/

One patient has died and another became seriously ill after fecal transplants inadvertently seeded their innards with a multi-drug resistant bacterial infection, the Food and Drug Administration warned Thursday.

The cases highlight the grave risks of what some consider a relatively safe procedure. They also call attention to the mucky issues of federal oversight for the experimental transplants, which the FDA has struggled to regulate. In its warning Thursday, the agency announced new protections for trials and experimental uses of the procedure.

I thought you pumped it "up" via enema.

This is like blood transfusions in the '80s - you get what you get from whoever you get it from; and god help you.

Sounds like there's a lot of info they're not releasing for some reason or another. Giving bacteria you got from some rando, without testing, to immunocompromised people, doesn't sound smart.

I think it only works down. If you swallow it it will eventually pass through your entire system, but if you squirt it up your ass no matter how long of a hose you use the bacteria will only be in contact with the lower part of your intestines.

I haven't looked into it, but I believe you are given the equivalent of a high colonic, which should coat most of your large intestine.

do you think bacteria is going to sit in one spot and head to the anus? the large intestine absorbs liquids ( when it's healthy).. so why would bacteria not be absorbed... and circulated throughout the body via the bloodstream.
