Faecal Transplants Finally Get Some Respect

CBS News reports that a study has just been published in The New England Journal of Medicine which finally confirms what many already knew:

Faecal implants work far better than antibiotics when treating the highly contagious (and rapidly spreading) gastrointestinal infection called C. difficile.  

Hopefully, now that it’s official, it’ll be easier for those who want to have the procedure done to find a doctor willing to do it somewhere near them.  This is great news.  Very great news.
