Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) for the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (RCDI) has traditionally been offered as fecal slurry administered by enema, nasogastric tube or endoscopy. Frozen oral capsules have also shown efficacy. The potential advantage of lyophilized FMT is the relative ease of manufacturing and storage compared with fecal slurry. Sterile fecal filtrate has previously been shown to prevent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) recurrence, suggesting that live bacteria may not be needed. This study will compare lyophilized sterile fecal filtrate (LSFF) with lyophilized FMT (LFMT) in the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (RCDI).
This study will assess the safety of a new biologic drug, RBX2660 (microbiota suspension) as a treatment for recurrent Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (CDAD), which is the primary symptom of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection. All eligible subjects will receive RBX2660.
Recurrent CDI is a growing problem with few treatment options that provide lasting effect. Fecal transplantation has been shown in several case series to be successful in controlling recurrent CDI. The current study is a non-blinded, randomized controlled trial comparing fecal transplantation with a 6 week taper of oral vancomycin for the treatment of refractory CDI. Approximately 146 patients will be enrolled over one year. Participants in the study will be followed for 120 days, and will be given the opportunity to cross over to the alternative intervention arm if a relapse in symptoms occurs. The primary outcome measure will be recurrence of toxin-confirmed CDI within 120 days of starting the intervention. Secondary outcomes include: early recurrence of symptoms within 14 days, relapse within 120 days (same strain of C. difficile), attributable mortality, hospitalization and serious adverse events.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of BIO-K+ CL1285 for prevention of recurrent Clostridium difficile infection.
