Fecal Microbiota Transplantation
Our team is dedicated to the advancement of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) in Aisa. In addition to research, our FMT platform provide FMT services to both public and private patients.
What is FMT
FMT is a novel way to treat different diseases via infusion of special processed fecal solution from healthy donors to affected subjects

Although fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is effective in treating patients with recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), the exact mechanism of FMT has been primarily ascribed to restoration of the gut bacterial microbiota. Our previous CDI study represents the first study to reveal that bacteriophage transfer is associated with FMT outcome and indicates that the restoration of virome community may be as important as that of the bacterial microbiome for FMT efficacy. Our team is working to extend the use of FMT to other diseases.
