Faecal microbiota transplantation reduces amounts of antibiotic resistance genes in patients with multidrug-resistant organisms

  01 February 2022

Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) such as vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) are associated with prolonged hospitalisation, increased medical costs, and severe infections. Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has emerged as an important strategy for decolonisation. This study aimed to evaluate the genetic response of MDROs to FMT.

FMT in patients infected with MDROs downregulates the expression of resistance genes, especially VanA, and facilitates MDRO decolonisation.
