Microbiota Transplant Therapy

with James B. Adams, Ph.D.


This presentation will provide an overview of the new treatment, Microbiota Transplant Therapy (MTT). It involves a special antibiotic to eliminate harmful gut bacteria, a bowel cleanse to remove most remaining gut bacteria, and then transplanting purified microbiota from healthy donors (essentially a “super-probiotic”). It was found that the treatment was safe, well-tolerated, and led to major improvements in gastrointestinal symptoms, autism-related symptoms, and microbiota diversity, both initially and two years after treatment stopped. Current research plans will also be discussed.

The Science Behind Sulforaphane

with Brian Cornblatt, Ph.D. and Chris D’Adamo Ph.D.


The use of phytochemicals, such as sulforaphane, whose precursor glucoraphanin is found in crucifers, offer a safe and promising approach to promote overall health and wellness. This presentation will highlight the science behind sulforaphane and the human clinical trials underway using the Avmacol® line of products. These nutraceuticals contain both glucoraphanin and the active myrosinase enzyme needed to support sulforaphane production.
