The Microbiome and C. diff – Can the Gut Defend Against Infection?
In recognition of Clostridioides difficile Awareness Month, the IDSA Foundation hosted a webinar to discuss how the microbiome can defend against C. diff and other infections. C. diff, a bacterium of the gut that causes diarrhea and inflammation of the colon, affects nearly 500,000 Americans each year. One in six patients will experience recurrence within 2-8 weeks of infection. Risk factors include a weakened immune system (including transplant, HIV and cancer patients); being 65 or older; being on antibiotics; or having recently completed a course of antibiotics.
