A 🧵on our new work on preclinical #FaecalMicrobiomeTransplantation studies!

A while back, I began to plan my own #FMT study.

Turns out, the literature is wildly varied but mainly it is pretty difficult to find a protocol that has all the nitty gritty detail you need.

1/
We systematically reviewed all #FMT studies (in mice) in the past decade, extracting all the methodological details they used/reported.

Recapping @AmCollegeGastro's #VirtualGrandRounds on #IBS! Let's begin!
🟣IBS can be diagnosed with the Rome criteria
🟣Making a positive diagnosis is very helpful to patients, many of whom have gone years without a name for their symptoms
#IBS is heterogeneous, and so are its pathogenesis and pathophysiology.
🟣Identifying underlying factors in patients can help target treatment!

@AmCollegeGastro
Important principles when diagnosing and treating #IBS.

Team tests hypothesis that #FMT from aged donor mice into adult recipients cld impact #brain functions associated w/ #aging 👉 Find that FMT from aged donors led to impaired spatial learning and memory in adult recipients: biorxiv.org/content/10.110… ImageImage
2/ FMT from aged mice also modulated expression of a variety of proteins implicated in maintenance of #synaptic plasticity + neurotransmission in the #hippocampus☝️and #microglia cells of the hippocampus fimbria acquired an aging-like phenotype Image
3/ The trends must be replicated/tested in humans! 👉 But, it makes my long-held contention that the #microbiome is involved in #aging processes less “crazy”😉 For more background check out this webinar I did on the topic w/ @mike_lustgarten + @subC0smos:

This! The activity of the host #immune response largely determines whether #pathobionts acquired from an #FMT donor might become capable of virulence 👉 So including immune status in the study of FMT outcomes would be extremely informative
IMO immune status should be included in the general study of #antibiotic resistant infection 👉 It’s no coincidence that most “superbug” infections occur in immunocompromised patients, often in hospitals (w/ patients on cocktails of steroids for procedures like organ transplants)
Because extrapolate that trend and consider that the immunosuppressive biologics used to palliate “#autoimmune” disease symptoms are the top selling medications in the world 👉 With top side effects of such drugs being “serious #infection by viruses, fungi or bacteria”(see below) Image
