But some physicians and hospitals have been squeamish about doing the procedure, said Dr. Michael Silverman, of Lakeridge Health, a hospital in Oshawa, Ont., who does fecal transplants.

He says contrary to what one might expect, patients themselves are well beyond "the ick factor" by the time they come to him. Weeks or longer spent tethered to a toilet have that effect, he suggested.
"There will be some patients who will find the other things too icky and will be willing to do this. But from my experience, almost everybody goes along with the NG tube or the enema because they're past the icky phase, the patients," said Silverman.
"The patients, by the time they have multiple recurrences of diarrhea, are willing to do anything to make this not happen again."
Silverman said Louie's pill treatment would be a "nice additional option" but he doesn't anticipate all practitioners will move away from the nasogastric tube or reverse enema delivery any time soon.

Emeritus professor of child health at Leicester, Professor Mike Silverman said the research - published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine - has important implications.

"If we can continue to develop new alveoli beyond early childhood, going on through adolescence, there is the potential for lung repair following injury that was never realised before," he said.
Silverman said external factors - such as inhaled pollution - could have a negative impact on lung development, and this new research provides a basis for looking at many factors with the potential to impact on lung health in the future.


Malaria drug 'contributing to antibiotic resistance' - SciDev.Net

Drug-resistant bacteria are known to arise from overuse of antibiotics, which is why researchers were surprised to discover that they can develop in areas that do not have access to ciprofloxacin, says study co-author Michael Silverman, an infectious disease specialist at Lakeridge Health Network in Ontario, Canada.

In fact, he says, ciprofloxacin-resistant E. coli were even more widespread in remote Guyanese villages than in United States intensive care units "where every second person is on antibiotics".
...
Silverman stressed that the study highlights the need to continue to try to prevent malaria through the use of insecticide-treated bed nets, along with the development of an effective vaccine.
