Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Eradicating Carriage of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms: A Systematic Review.

08:00 EDT 12th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for Eradicating Carriage of Multidrug-Resistant Organisms: A Systematic Review."

Multidrug resistant (MDR) microorganism development in the gut is frequently secondary to inappropriate antibiotic use. Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) restores normal gut microbiota in patients with C difficile infection; we hypothesized that it may help in decolonizing MDR organisms (MDROs) and in preventing recurrent MDR infections.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Transfer of GASTROINTESTINAL MICROBIOTA from one individual to another by infusion of donor FECES to the upper or lower GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT of the recipient.

Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.

Organisms whose GENOME has been changed by a GENETIC ENGINEERING technique.

Organisms that live in water.

Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
