"Borody was the first in Australia to embrace faecal transplants. In 1988 he had a patient with colitis who had been admitted to a mental institution as a result of her condition. “She was dramatically fixed on the first day.”
His approach to Crohn's is different because it treats the cause as infectious. The culprit being Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP).
"Professor Tom Borody has been championing the treatment, known as faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), for 25 years."
"My symptoms disappeared. ..... I'm living with controlled Crohn's."
Super poo: Are faecal transplants the way of the future? Many of his (Professor Borody's) patients are C. diff sufferers who have been plagued with recurrent diarrhoea for years, but are cured within days.
