Can Poop Transplants Help Treat COVID-19? – News


New case reports suggest that fecal transplantation may have helped two patients with risk factors avoid severe COVID-19. However, because this study was based on only two patients, improvement may have been seen by chance or as a result of other treatments.

Two patients were recently hospitalized in Poland for a bacterial infection and received a fecal transplant for treatment. Both patients later tested positive for COVID-19, but neither developed serious illness, despite the underlying illness. “One possible explanation” is that poop transplants performed to boost the immune response may have prevented patients from becoming very ill, the author wrote in a study.
