A study recently published in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases found that UC can be controlled by the type of bacteria that inhabits the gut. Additionally, in research published in Gastroenterology, researchers explored the safety and efficacy of FMT by conducting a placebo-controlled, randomized trial. They found that FMT induces remission in a significantly greater percentage of patients with active UC than placebo.
