    Where in the U.S. can you find a doctor to do a fecal transplant? Have any studies been done for auto-immune and/or candida?

    Studies have been done, but only few. More studies are being done or planned to be done, as this is a very hot topic in science.

    At this moment, we are in the very early stages of all this research. There is still very much we do not know.

    One thing we do know is that safety is problematic. The treatment is risky. Current studies focus on the causes of infections and other adverse reactions.

    As the the note at the top of the JAMA article states about microbiota transplantation:
    “[P]practical barriers and safety concerns have prevented its widespread use.”
