Could healthy donor gut bacteria be used to treat stem cell transplant (SCT) complications?

Erik Thiele Orberg

April 21, 2022

For the AML World Awareness Day, Know AML spoke with Erik Thiele Orberg, Technical University of Munich, Munich, DE. We asked, Could gut bacteria from healthy donors be used to treat stem cell transplant (SCT) complications?

Orberg highlights that his research group is currently investigating how the modulation of the intestinal microbiome can prevent and treat complications in stem cell transplantations. He explains that a more diverse microbiome results in better clinical outcomes for patients, and that restoring certain bacterial communities will be key in recovery.
