Current Evidence on the Safety of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) for C. difficile infection
In this paper, we provide an overview on the safety of FMT and important points to consider about the procedure. The perspectives presented here draw from the general safety of FMT sourced from universal stool banks (like OpenBiome) and hospital-based stool banks. This paper is aimed at physicians and healthcare professionals caring for patients being considered for FMT as well as patients themselves. The information reviewed here will help ensure that patients are fully informed of the safety profile of FMT and potential risks associated with the procedure before undergoing treatment.
