Clostridium Difficile Clinical Trials In Boston

Clostridium difficile, also referred to as C. diff or C. difficile, can cause severe diarrhea and colon inflammation in humans. It is a type of bacteria that forms spores and can survive for long periods in the environment.

Clostridium Difficile Infection is mostly linked to healthcare facilities, particularly hospitals and long-term care facilities. Those hospitalized or who have recently taken antibiotics are at a higher risk of developing a Chronic difficile infection, as antibiotics can disrupt the normal balance of gut bacteria, which enables C. difficile to grow and produce toxins that harm the intestinal lining.

Symptoms of a C. difficile infection include diarrhea (which may be bloody), fever, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, and nausea. In severe cases, an infection can result in dehydration, kidney failure, and toxic megacolon, a dangerous condition in which the colon becomes distended.

MetroBoston is conducting clostridium difficile clinical trials to discover potential study drugs to treat Clostridium Difficle. that could serve as a possible solution to the condition.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is clostridium difficile infection?

Clostridium Difficile infection, is a bacterial infection that primarily affects the colon (large intestine).

What are the warning signs of C. diff?

The warning signs of Clostridium difficile infection (C. diff) can vary in severity and may include the following:

  • Watery Diarrhea.
  • Abdominal Pain and Cramping.
  • Fever.
  • Loss of Appetite.
  • Nausea.

What is the main symptom of clostridium difficile?

The main symptom of Clostridium difficile infection (C. diff) is frequent, watery diarrhea. This diarrhea is often characterized as being more than three loose stools per day. Other accompanying symptoms may include abdominal pain, cramping, fever, loss of appetite, and nausea.

Will I be cured at the end of the research study?

Clostridium Difficile Clinical Trials are designed to gather data and evaluate the effectiveness and safety of new C. diff treatments. While participating in a study may provide an opportunity to receive potentially beneficial treatments, there is no guarantee of a cure.
