DESCRIPTION

The Microbiome Health Research Institute, d.b.a. OpenBiome is seeking healthy volunteer donors to provide life-saving treatment for people with C. difficile infection by donating their stool. Half a million Americans contract C. diff infections each year.  1 in 5 patients find that the infection comes back, even after they take antibiotics. Where antibiotics have failed, a new treatment called fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) made from donor stool cures 85% of patients after the first try. As a reimbursement for their commitment, donors are paid $40 per donation of stool. Donors must be local to Boston, Cambridge, or Somerville, Massachusetts and pass a series of health screens.


REQUIREMENTS

  • Pass a series of health screens
  • Able to visit labs at the BU West T Stop (Boston), Central Square (Cambridge), or Sullivan Square (Somerville) at least 3 times a week for 60 days
  • Between 18-50 years old during the donation period
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) less than 30

NEED

  • Donors, between 18-50 years old with a BMI less than 30, local to Boston, Cambridge, or Somerville, Massachusetts 

DETAILS

Receive:  $40 per donation
