Borody says this breakthrough treatment now opens the door for streamlining the FMT process. The professor says future treatments for Crohn's Disease could use a "crapsule" - a pill full of freeze dried fecal material from a healthy donor - which could be easily taken orally.

If I had that disease I'd rather swallow a capsule of crap then get opened up (assuming that's even how they do fecal transplants).

Used to work with a guy who had severe Crohn's.  In the three years I knew him he had to have bowel resection surgery twice due to intestinal adhesions.

I hope this proves out.

Seems awfully jovial and "light" for a major medical breakthrough, no?

Yeah, there's no way that such a monumental cure is announced that way. I'll bet it's another one of those 'we feel this treatment might have promise so more research is needed' type of papers got translated into 'CURE FOUND!!!".

Well taking a pill up the butt to fix a major health problem is pretty ok.
Hopefully they can get treatments for other butt problems like this too, or just treatments for stuff in general.

I don't find the levity that strange though, app the gastroenterology specialists I know are pretty cheerful folks, or at least they liked all the butt jokes I had to say.

Adolph Hitler suffered from many health problems including stomach cramps and meteorism - powerful attacks of uncontrollable farting. He may have adopted vegetarianism to relieve these.

His quack doctor, Theodor Morell, prescribed him Mutaflor pills containing dried fecal bacteria.

Mutaflor is still available today.

This reminded of a very old National Lampoon advertisement/PSA about TF (Terminal Flatulence)
