A Randomized, Double-blind Trial of Oral Fecal Microbiota Transplantation versus Placebo for the Eradication of Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci Colonization from the Gut (VRE-FMT)
The VRE-FMT trial (pending NIH U01) will test a novel intervention, fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) in oral encapsulation, for eradication of vacomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) colonization in asymptomatic VRE gut colonized patients in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
