On the Sunday airing of the Outbreak News This Week Radio show, I was joined by two special guests discussing two important topics.
In the first half, I look at the rare condition, usually brought on by medications or infections, Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) with a person that actually went through this painful immune-complex–mediated hypersensitivity complex.
Donna Rushing of Tampa was diagnosed with SJS one year ago and talks about the beginnings of the syndrome, symptoms, diagnosis, the treatment and her long recovery.
In the second half, Professor in the Department of Epidemiology, Human Genetics and Environmental Sciences at UTHealth School of Public Health and senior author of a study published in the journal, Alimentary Pharmacology & Therapeutics, Herbert DuPont, MD joined me to talk about the study that looked at comparisons between fresh, frozen or freeze-dried Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) via colonoscopy in the treatment of recurrent Clostridium difficile, or C-diff infection.
