Ha! Glad to see this is in the works! Treatment of c. diff is one of my favorite things to "pimp" medical students on. Of course most will come up with flagyl and vanco but the look that comes across some of their faces when you mention fecal transplant is priceless!

I'll bet that look is priceless. No one ever said medicine was pretty.
