Donor feces for Cdiff

In this trial of patients with recurrent Cdiff, they were treated with vancomycin, then randomized to no further therapy, duodenal lavage, or duodenal infusion of donor feces. Those in the donor feces group had 81% resolution of disease at 10 weeks (after 1 infusion), compared to 23% of those in the lavage group, and 31% of the vancomycin only group, with no difference in adverse events. This will become the new standard of care for recurrent Cdiff (abstract).
