Recently, the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology published research suggesting that, in certain cases, patients suffering from the nasty clostridium difficile bug may need fecal transplants or “transpoosions.”
“C. Diff,” as it is commonly called among the gastric groupies, is a tough little bug that patients are increasingly catching in hospitals and nursing homes.
Although antibiotics are now the first mode of attack, a growing number of gastroenterologists like Dr. Lawrence Brandt of the Montifiore Medical Center, in New York, believe that, in some cases, injecting excrement either by enema or through a gastric tube inserted in the nose is more effective.
