Fecal Microbiota Transplantation for refractory immune checkpoint inhibitor-associated colitis

Study Description

We report the first case series of ICI associated colitis successfully treated with fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), with reconstitution of the gut microbiome and a relative increase in the proportion of regulatory T cells (Tregs) within the colonic mucosa. These preliminary data provide evidence that modulation of the gut microbiome may abrogate ICI-associated colitis.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Microbiome analysis was performed on the patient samples collected pre-FMT and on days after FMT, and on samples collected from the FMT donor. Genomic bacterial DNA was extracted from fecal samples using the QIAamp DNA Stool kit (Qiagen, Hilden, Germany), with the addition of a bead-beating lysis step. Genomic 16S ribosomal-RNA V4 variable regions were amplified and sequenced on the Illumina MiSeq platform.
