Fecal Microbiota Transplant as a Treatment for Ulcerative Colitis
Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a chronic auto-immune and inflammatory gastrointestinal disease which pathogenesis is still not well understood. It is generally agreed that this condition is triggered and maintained by an imbalanced gut microbiota. The current standard treatments relieve the symptoms but fail at eradicating the disease. This presentation will discuss and propose methods to evaluate Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) as a treatment for UC.
