Canadian medical researchers have developed synthetic poop — dubbed “RePOOPulate” — to cure a deadly gastrointestinal infection.

“It’s an exciting finding,” said Emma Allen-Vercoe, a professor in the University of Guelph’s Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology.

In a study published in Microbiome, a BioMed Central (BMC) publication that launched its first issue this week, the researchers found that the synthetic poop cured gastrointestinal infections caused by an antibiotic-resistant bacteria known as Clostridium difficile

Raw Story (s.tt...)

This is insane, but it makes me wonder once again why dogs eat their own poop. Maybe they got the idea from that....
