According to a hospital physician in a British Columbia hospital, taking fecal matter from a healthy relative and inserting it into the rectum of a patient suffering from C. difficile, causes the good bacteria found in the stool of the donor to kill the "bad" bacteria.
Unfortunately health authorities have stopped Dr. Jeanne Keegan-Henry and colleagues from giving the highly effective treatment because it is still experimental. "I can't offer it to [to patients]. I can't do anything for them," said Dr. Jeanne Keegan-Henry, "and I've seen some of them die."
"C. difficile is a wimpy bug. If there are other bugs around it dies, it gets beaten up. So all we need is the right bugs," she said.
