Problem addressed

Many Diseases are Related to Imbalance of Gut Microbiota (Dysbiosis), including Obesity, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, C. Difficile Colitis (CDI), and Graft-Versus-Host Disease. 

Innovation
  • With Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT), we can restore the bablance of gut microbiota
  • Using Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) to treat patients with severe Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection.
Key impact
  • The cure rate of treating patients with severe Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) infection is over 85% when using FMT, which is significantly higher than that of conventional antibiotic treatment.
Award
  • Geneva International Exhibition of Inventions - Silver Medal
Application
  • Apply FMT in other digestive diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis
