Stool Donor Program Overview – Why The Need

Rebiotix Inc., a Ferring Company, is the first company to take on the challenge of rigorously investigating a microbiota-based drug under the guidance of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for recurrent C. diff., and it all begins with stool donors.

We harness the human microbiome by collecting human stool, which contains the microbes we need to make our drug therapy for our patients. Our MRT™ drug platform is delivering healthy, live, human-derived microbes into a sick patient’s intestinal track to treat disease.
