More on fecal transplants

Maryn McKenna has two new pieces on fecal transplants on her blog and in the latest issue of Scientific American (full text here). These are very well written. I plan to use these for patient education when I see patients with recurrent Clostridium difficile infection for whom fecal transplantation may be an option.

Addendum (2/1/12):  Click here to listen to an interview with Maryn McKenna on the topic of fecal transplants.


  1. Kind of cool that Fecal transplants got a front page on Wired's website.
