Questions are for people with PSC and people who have had a transplant for PSC.

Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) occurs, most often, in individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Recent studies indicate that the combination of PSC and IBD arises because of an imbalance between the good vs. bad bacteria in the gut.

In the following questions, FMT stands for faecal microbiota transplantation. This is where your own gut bacteria are replaced with that from a healthy individual.

* 1. With this in mind, would you be interested in taking part in a study that:

  Yes No

uses FMT?
uses BOTH a gut-specific antibiotic and FMT?

  Yes No
