The microbiome within the gut lumen has been found in prior studies to differ in individuals with C. difficile infection (CDI) in comparison to those without diarrhea. The microbiome associated with the mucosal surface on the colon has been noted to differ from that of the lumen in other clinical scenarios, although this has not been studied in depth in patients with CDI. The goal of this research is to characterize the mucosal microbiome in patients with CDI after treatment to characterize this microbiome and determine the effect on recurrence of CDI.
The purpose of this study is to characterize mucosal and luminal microbiome in patients diagnosed with Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), at the time of diagnosis and after treatment, to determine the effect of mucosa associated microbiome on outcome of CDI and the effect of antibiotic treatment on mucosa associated microbiome
The purpose of this study is to characterize the mucosal microbiome in patients who have recently been treated for Clostridium-difficile Infection (CDI) in comparison to that of control population to determine the effect of the mucosal associated microbiome on outcome of CDI.
