  Purpose

Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) in pediatric patients with recurrent C. Difficile with or without Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

The aims of this study are to determine the safety and efficacy of FMT treatment in pediatric patients with recurrent or moderate to severe C. Difficile without (through an observational study) and with (through a clinical trial) Inflammatory Bowel Disease and to determine the effect of FMT on the gut microbiota through the use of 454 pyrosequencing before and after transplantation in these patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects with a recurrence of C. difficile (CDI) [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    The hypothesis is that FMT will be an effective therapy for patients with IBD and CDI, resulting in resolution of symptoms as compared to historical controls on antibiotic therapy.


Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: December 2015
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
