    Fecal Transplant Patient Killed by Superbug Traced to Donor Stool

    " “FDA is informing members of the medical and scientific communities and other interested persons of the potential risk of transmission of [multidrug-resistant organisms] by FMT and the resultant serious adverse reactions that may occur,” the agency said in its safety communication.

    It’s likely that the pre-existing health of both patients contributed to the severity of their illnesses, since both had weakened immune systems. But the infections could have been prevented had doctors in the trial been looking for these bacteria in donors to begin with, the FDA said.

    In 2013, as FMT trials began taking off, the agency announced it would take a hands-off approach in regulating its early use for C. diff infections (generally, any new drug or treatment for a disease needs to go through a lengthy FDA approval process before it can be widely available). So long as patients were told upfront about the potential risks and experimental nature of the treatment by doctors, it would be less strict in approving or supervising new clinical trials. But as a result of these tragic cases, the agency is now demanding that all investigational trials preemptively screen their donors for risk factors that would make them more likely to have superbugs, as well as to test their donor samples for these bacteria. Doctors should tell their volunteers beforehand about these now-discovered serious risks, too.
