Your Health, Our Mission.
We deliver a safe, medically supervised approach.
We are committed to providing high-quality medically supervised fecal microbiota transplants (FMT) for autism and the diverse range of symptoms that come with being on the spectrum. We offer expert medical oversight, along with individualized treatment that delivers excellent and lasting results.
Our Treatment is Delivering Excellent Results
Novel Biome™ has developed and successfully executed a clinically proven treatment protocol which is improved over the pivotal protocol first developed by Dr. James Adam and his team at Arizona State University (ASU).
In this original ASU study, children were given 8 weeks of daily FMT treatment. 80% improvement over baseline in digestive related symptoms at 18 weeks was observed. Additionally, they observed a 25% improvement in autism-related symptoms score after only 18 weeks. In a two year follow up of patients in this study, they observed the 80% improvement in digestive symptoms maintained and a further 20% improvement in autism-related symptoms was reported, for a total of nearly 50% improvement from the baseline of the study.
We at Novel Biome™ have adjusted this protocol resulting in improved results compared to those observed in the ASU study. The protocol improvements are as follows: Individualized pre-FMT treatment plan / Extended treatment period (from 8-weeks of treatment to 16-weeks) / Optimized both the loading + maintenance dose in terms of the method of delivery (treatment approach).
Safety is our primary focus. The most critical component of your child’s medically supervised FMT treatment is adequate donor screening and high quality product manufacturing! Here at Novel Biome™, we make this our #1 priority and follow all FDA and American Gastroenterology Association donor screening standards to ensure the highest quality end product is used in our treatment. We have made significant investments into building a “state of the art” lab facility in North America and it is in this lab where we process and manufacture our FMT product.

The most critical component of your child’s medically supervised FMT treatment is adequate donor screening! Here at Novel Biome™, we make this our #1 priority and follow all FDA and American Gastroenterology Association donor screening standards to ensure the highest quality product. All of our donors reside in North America.
The donors undergo routine screening for both blood and stool borne pathogens. Before becoming a donor, they undergo this rigorous screening and then again on a routine basis to ensure all collected and processed materials are safe to be implanted.
In addition to extensive laboratory analysis, the donor’s medical background and health history is pivotal in determining whether or not they would make a suitable donor. All donors are vaginally born, breastfed, active, physically fit and have never received antibiotics in their lives. Additionally, they eat a diverse omnivorous diet to ensure as much bacterial diversity as possible.
A basic screen of their medical history would include the following diseases:
