Reducing C Difficile Infections (May 14, 2015 - Insidermedicine)
From Chicago - Oral administration of harmless C difficile spores can reduce recurrence of the infection, according to a report published in JAMA. Researchers studied 173 patients who were diagnosed with CDI. Participants were randomly assigned to receive 1 of 4 treatments—three of which contained liquid formulation of nontoxigenic C difficile spores, and one placebo. CDI recurrence was 30% among those taking placebo but only 11% among those taking the spores.
