AGA advocates for FMT Registry support, antimicrobial resistance funding
In coordination with the Stakeholder Forum on Antimicrobial Resistance, we met with members of the House Appropriations Committee to seek support for report language to ensure that NIH continues to fund AGA's Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) National Registry. The FMT registry will help GI practices better understand the long-term outcomes for patients who receive FMT to treat C. difficile or potentially other conditions in the future.
