The gut microbiota is considered to constitute a "microbial organ" which has pivotal roles in the body's metabolism. Evidence from animal and human studies strongly support the link between intestinal bacteria and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The present clinical trial aims to re-establish a gut functionality state of intestinal flora through fecal microbiota transplantation.

Further study details as provided by Faming Zhang, The Second Hospital of Nanjing Medical University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Efficiency of FMT on T2DM [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]
    Confirmed by the tests of blood glucose level, OGTT, HACb1 and C-peptide.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Durability [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]
    Measure the durability of the therapy effects.Based on the tests of blood glucose level, HACb1 and C-peptide. BMI also will be observed.

Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: October 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: FMT by endoscopy
Once, fresh or frozen bacteria
Procedure: FMT through mid-gut
Other Name: FMT through mid-gut by gastroscope

Detailed Description:
We established a standard bacteria isolation from donated fresh stool in lab.Then the bacteria is transplanted to mid-gut (at least below the second part of duodenum ) through regular gastroscope. Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to receive fecal microbiota transplantation only once or traditional therapy, and accept follow-up for at least one year. Blood tests,OGTT and magnetic resonance spectroscopy will be used to assess participants at study start and at study completion.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Exclusion Criteria:

With any cause of liver disease other than fatty liver Known or suspected cirrhosis Inability or unwillingness to undergo OGTT and magnetic resonance procedures Requirement of long-term antibiotic therapy Pregnancy, breast-feeding, or plans to become pregnant
