Dr.Rubin is a very understanding and caring GI. We had an appointment with him in July end. We too went there in the hope to get FT. But he said he is waiting for the FDA'S approval for the 2nd trial. Even if he get the approval, there are some requirements to get into the trial. The one I remember- for my daughter, her UC should be still be active with basic maintenance med. He is very supportive to the SCD diet.
