Antimicrobial Resistance Gene Acquisition and Depletion Following Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) for Recurrent Clostridium Difficile Infection

By October 26, 2017No Comments

Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) may be a novel approach to eliminate multidrug-resistant bacteria from the gut and to prevent future infections. Using whole metagenome sequencing data from eight FMT donor-recipient pairs, we identified 37 and 95 antimicrobial resistance genes that were acquired by or removed from FMT recipients, respectively.
