Jointly with its collaborator, Dr. Leo R. Fitzpatrick, Associate Professor from the Department of Pharmacology, Penn State College of Medicine, Pa., Ganeden will present data on the effect of GanedenBC30 on impacting C. diff-induced colitis in mice.

Clostridium difficile (C. diff) is a species of gram-positive bacteria that causes severe diarrhea and other intestinal disease when competing, friendly bacteria in the gut flora are wiped out by antibiotics.  C. diff infection typically occurs in hospital or healthcare settings after antibiotic administration.  The U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) estimates that C. diff infections occur in 10 of every 1,000 hospitalizations.  AHRQ research found that patients with C. diff were hospitalized almost three times longer than uninfected patients and that the in-hospital death rate for patients with C. diff was almost five times the overall rate.
