Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) of FMP30 in Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Study: A Phase 1b Clinical Trial to Evaluate Feasibility, Safety, Tolerability and Effects on Immune Function.
In this Phase 1b open-label prospective clinical trial, patients with relapsing- remitting MS will undergo FMT of FMP30 (donor stool) via colonoscopy and immunological efficacy endpoints will be assessed at various time points. The active phase of the study will continue for 12 weeks post-FMT with safety and biomarker (engraftment) follow-up for 48 weeks. A parallel observational control arm of MS patients who otherwise satisfy study inclusion criteria based on their MS phenotype, demographics, disease duration and prior use of allowable MS therapies, will be recruited as a comparison observational group to measure stability of stool and serum immunological measures.
