Fecal Microbiota Transplantation National Registry
The AGA Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) National Registry will assess short- and long-term patient outcomes associated with FMT. This registry is a program of the AGA Institute and AGA Center for Gut Microbiome Research & Education.
If you perform fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), we encourage you to participate in this national data collection project. Our goal is to track 4,000 patients for 10 years. The data we collect will allow us to identify potential short-term adverse outcomes and to search for long-term safety concerns, such as development of chronic conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, obesity and diabetes. Please contribute to advancing the future of FMT — the information available to you and your patients at the end of this initiative will be worth it.
Published in Gastroenterology, the registry reported that FMT led to a cure of C. difficile infection in 90% of patients across 20 North American FMT practice sites. Few serious side effects were reported.
With this milestone, the FMT registry is officially underway. The AGA FMT National Registry also announces collaborations with American Gut and OpenBiome.
