Thanks DB. The (anonymous) donors are vetted and supplied by the University.
Here is some more info: (copy of email prior to meeting)
I will gladly answer any questions you may
have. 1) We have started the study and will continue for the next 2 years.
2) Myself and Dr. Moayyedi are blinded as
to what the patient will be receiving. Once baseline procedures are done
and you qualify for the study, you will be randomized to the same treatment for
6 weeks, after your 6th treatment patients will undergo another flex
sig to look at the healing of your bowel. If there has been no change, the code
is broken to see what treatment you were assigned to. If you were assigned to
the placebo, you would then be re- randomized to the active treatment for 6
We will explain in more detail when I see
you on Nov 14th
I can also answer any other questions you
Looking forward to meeting you
I'll keep everyone posted with info. I'm wondering if this same trial is being conducted in the US. It wouldn't be too far for folks in Western New York state to travel. Dr. Moayyedi said that his trial is 'randomized' at the request (insistance) of the Canadian Health Ministry.
