ILBS and IMTech collaborate for microbiome research
Chandigarh CSIR-IMTech has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences (ILBS), New Delhi for collaborative research on "Development of Gut Microbiome Consortia for management of Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis (SAH)"
The objective is to develop alternative microbial approaches to the currently used treatments for patients affected with Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis (SAH) liver ailments with human fecal matter transplant.
The collaborative institutes intend to explore the possibility of formulating minimal microbial consortia from healthy human poop, which can be administered easily for treating the SAH and other liver-related ailments.
