Seeking men and women aged 65 and older for a study of changes in the microbiome in the intestines of seniors when they move into a long-term care facility.
We are collecting stool samples and health survey data at different time points over two years from men and women who are aged 65 and older to better understand changes in the microbiome among people living in the community and those who are living in long-term care facilities.
What we're hoping for
We hope to better understand the changes that occur within the microbiome of seniors so that we might reduce the increased risk of diarrhea caused by Clostridium Difficile (C.Diff) for those living in a long-term care facility.
