New Report: The Potential of FMT as Therapy for IBD

The Kenneth Rainin Foundation released a new report on World IBD Day to explore Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) as a potentially transformative therapy for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). We joined forces with OpenBiome, a nonprofit stool bank and FMT information nexus, to prepare this white paper.


Download our new report and get extensive insight on the current state of research.

The Foundation sees FMT and more broadly, Microbial Restoration Therapy (MRT), as a promising therapeutic opportunity that is ripe for further exploration.

Our new report on FMT as a therapy for IBD provides:

  • an overview of the current state of the field
  • insights on the promise of FMT for IBD
  • perspective on the key questions to be addressed as research proceeds

As a leading funder of IBD research, the Rainin Foundation is committed to investing in innovative projects that will deepen our understanding of IBD and improve treatments for people living with IBD.

We will continue to work with world-renowned scientists and clinicians to further explore the potential of FMT as a therapy for IBD by means of larger scale clinical trials.
