So putting poo from a disease mouse into a healthy one gave the healthy one the disease as well as vice versa??
That might make this research even MORE interesting! I guess raising and showing dogs for 30 years gave me a different perspective on poo.
However, the part I'm really leery about
is that its coming from another person. I've got enough problems of my own, I don't want someone elses. Some things they don't know to test for yet (think HIV years ago in the blood supply) and if no symptoms have appeared the person is healthy, right? Not necessarily.
I've been intrigued by the research being done in Israel utilizing biopsies from our own gut to make a personalized autologus vaccine for our own Crohn's.
Years ago my hubby broke out in boils - all over - they thought at first diabetes, then they tucked him into isolation and "suited up" before they would go anywhere near him. There were way too many to lance. They ended up bringing some doctors down from Mass General who took samples from the boils, went back to Boston, made a vaccine, came back and gave him some and the boils cleared up and he's never had another.
When a particular kennel was having severe conception problems of long duration it was suggested that samples be taken from each "female dog" *sigh* (since I can't use proper terminology here) and an autogenous bacterin produced to treat them with.
They've been doing this for years in cattle for mastitis.
Hey, they laughed at and derided the guy who discovered H. pylori, remember?
