DRS. OZ AND REZLAN: Fecal transplantation and the FDA
Q: My 78-year-old father developed drug-resistant C. diff and almost died from diarrhea and dehydration. He received a stool transplant from his nephew, and it cleared up the condition quickly! So why is the Food and Drug Administration trying to restrict the use of it? I thought it was an accepted treatment. Can you explain? -- Sally P., Richmond, Va.
