Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT) as a treatment for C. difficile infections has skyrocketed over the past decade.

This has left doctors, scientists, drug developers and, most importantly patients, operating in a regulatory fog.
Peggy Lillis Foundation hosted this educational webinar with leading scholar Diane Hoffmann to unpack the past, the present, and possible futures for FDA regulation of FMT and other microbiome- derived treatments.
