Autism symptoms were reduced by 45% two years after children with autism spectrum disorder received a fecal transplant.
Many children with autism spectrum disorder have gut disturbances including a loss of diversity in bacteria in the gut including bifidobacteria and prevotella. Fecal transplant increased these beneficial bacteria and was even better two years after the procedure.
Two years after treatment stopped the participants still had an average of a 58% reduction in GI symptoms and a 45% reduction in autism symptoms compared to baseline.
At the start of the study, 83% of participants were rated as having “severe” autism. At the end of the study, only 17% were rated as having “severe” autism.
