BreezyRacer,

Does wxxu's thread on prevotellaceae, etc., refer to the work that you mention?

http://neurotalk.psychcentral.com/sh...prevotellaceae

Perhaps I need to restart my yoghurt white-ratting.

John

Good question, and I don't know a single heavy person with PD. We have often wondered about this, as everyone we know with PD, even when originally diagnosed, was thin. I think there is a lot going on here.

Five years later, with thanks to Jeffreyn who posted this paper on Health Unlocked:

"Fecal microbiota transplantation therapy for Parkinson's disease
A preliminary study"
Xue, Liu-Jun et al.
Medicine, August 2020
Fecal microbiota transplantation therapy for Parkinson's dis... : Medicine

Reporting on a small sample size of 15 PwP, Xue et al. write:

"the results of this preliminary study indicate that FMT can relieve the motor and non-motor symptoms with acceptable safety in PD. Compared with nasointestinal FMT, colonic FMT may be more effective and may become a new option for the treatment of PD."

Thanks John. I hadn't yet worked out the best spot to post it to!

Possibly also of interest, there is a double-blind, placebo-controlled "FMT for PD" trial currently taking place in Belgium:
