Core Tip Advances into the understanding of the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) have highlighted the importance of a dysbiosis in the intestinal microbiome. A perturbed microbiota with loss of colonization resistance is a main driver of Clostridium difficile infection and exciting new data exists that microbial restoration through the use of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is highly successful. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that FMT will have therapeutic efficacy in IBD. Preliminary studies that have evaluated FMT for IBD are reviewed with an emphasis on subpopulations that may benefit the most. The limitations and unknowns for this novel therapy are also discussed.
