FMT vs. HMT PROCESSING
Human Microbiota Transplant, or HMT®, is the next generation of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT), a novel treatment in clinical use that is shown to be over 90% effective for treating C. difficile infection in patients who are unresponsive to traditional antibiotic therapy.
HMT’s add several steps to the processing methodology of an FMT to remove a much larger portion of the undigested food particulate in the feces and to preserve as much of the bacterial community as possible in an anaerobic environment.
