The 5th Annual Meeting of the Intestinal Flora Transplantation Clinical Research Foundation will be held on Sunday, September 19, 2021.
The main theme of this conference is “Relay of Intestinal Bacteria to the Next Generation”. We would like to thank everyone for their support and cooperation in holding this conference despite the difficult situation caused by the new coronavirus.
Looking back over the past year, the importance of intestinal bacteria has been further recognized, and it can be inferred from many papers from around the world that the intestinal environment is involved in the treatment and prevention of many diseases. We are proud to be the first and only organized clinical research institute for transplantation of intestinal flora in Japan, and we have been contributing to society by steadily disseminating many basic and clinical researches to society and aiming for further development.
At this year’s conference, we will present the results of the clinical research we have conducted over the past four years.
Dr. Taiichi Katayama, Associate Dean of the United Graduate School of Child Development, Osaka University and Professor of Molecular Biogenetics, will deliver a keynote lecture on “The Usefulness of Objective Testing Methods for Autism Spectrum Disorders”. Efforts to objectively verify the usefulness of intestinal flora transplantation in autism spectrum disorder have begun.
In addition, in the joint research with Professor Mariko Takeda, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Kobe Gakuin University, which started last May, the basic research of “Hydrogen NanoGAS™ Water” containing fine bubbles used as a solvent for the intestinal flora transplantation was further advanced and a patent application was jointly filed. The results of this year-long verification will be presented.
We will continue to advance our clinical research on intestinal flora transplantation and make further efforts to contribute to society toward the goals of disease treatment, prevention, health maintenance, and life happiness. We would like to ask for your great support and cooperation.
We look forward to your participation in what we hope will be a fruitful and productive conference.
Future clinical research in the Gut Flora Transplantation Clinical Study Group - cancer, renal disease
OUR RESEARCH GROUP HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN CLINICAL STUDIES OF INTESTINAL FLORA TRANSPLANTATION (FMT) NOT ONLY IN GASTROINTESTINAL DISEASES SUCH AS ULCERATIVE COLITIS AND IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME, BUT ALSO IN AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER IN CHILDREN AND ALLERGIC DISEASES SUCH AS ATOPIC DERMATITIS. IN THE FUTURE, WE WOULD LIKE TO CONDUCT CLINICAL STUDIES ON CANCER AND RENAL DISEASES. BASED ON THE IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN INTESTINAL FLORA AND IMMUNITY, FMT MAY WORK TO SUPPRESS THE ONSET AND PROGRESSION OF CANCER. IN ADDITION, FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF THE INTESTINAL-KIDNEY RELATIONSHIP, FMT MAY INHIBIT THE DECLINE OF RENAL FUNCTION IN PATIENTS WITH CONSERVATIVE RENAL FAILURE PRIOR TO THE INTRODUCTION OF DIALYSIS, FOR WHOM NO ACTIVE TREATMENT IS AVAILABLE. I WOULD LIKE TO RAISE THESE POINTS.
Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) has been attracting attention in recent years as a method to improve dysbiosis of the intestinal microbiota (intestinal flora). The NanoGAS®-FMT (NanoGAS®-FMT), which uses nanobubble water containing dissolved minute molecular hydrogen, is considered to be more effective than conventional FMT due to the various properties of nanobubbles. In this study, we experienced a case of ulcerative colitis that was found to be in remission by the attending physician on endoscopy 3 months after starting NanoGAS®-FMT. Prior to the patient’s visit to our clinic, the inflammation tended to decrease after the start of medication, but the symptoms were not stable enough and fluctuated up and down, with occasional episodes of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and bloody stools. Her symptoms had been aggravated by diet and stress, and she was able to control her diet and lifestyle on her own and stabilize her condition, but she was unable to achieve remission. In order to improve the transplantation efficiency, we improved her intestinal environment and nutritional condition before transplantation. We plan to report on our experience with this case in terms of treatment course, laboratory data, etc.
Utility of Intestinal Flora Transplantation (NanoGAS®-FMT) for Ulcerative Colitis
ULCERATIVE COLITIS (UC) IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON AND GROWING DISEASES IN THE WORLD, INCLUDING JAPAN. FECAL MICROFLORA TRANSPLANTATION (FMT) FOR UC IS NOT A COMMON TREATMENT FOR UC AT PRESENT, BUT IT IS A TREATMENT THAT IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE SLOW HEALING BY ALTERING THE INTESTINAL FLORA. In this study, we experienced two cases of UC and one case of dementia complicated with chronic sinusitis treated with the patent-pending NanoGAS®-FMT, which is a value-added method of mixing NanoGAS® and fecal bacteria solution, instead of the conventional saline and fecal bacterium solution. We report on the cases with improvement in physical symptoms, mental symptoms, and intestinal flora balance.

Usefulness of Objective Test Methods for Autism Spectrum Disorders ~History of the Development of a New Gaze Detection Device and Gaze Finder
Dr. Taiichi Katayama United Graduate School of Child Development, Osaka University Associate Dean, Professor of Molecular Biogenetics, United Graduate School of Child Development, Osaka University
In recent years, various issues related to “autistic spectrum disorder” have been widely discussed in society. However, correct knowledge and understanding of “autistic spectrum disorder” has not yet advanced. One of the reasons for this is that there is a lack of means for others to understand how people with autism spectrum disorder feel and think, and it is difficult to understand from the outside. Therefore, Gazefinder (GF) was developed as a simple and objective visualization tool that anyone can understand. As one of the people involved in the development of the GF, this presentation will be a comprehensive talk that aims to share with the attendees an overview of how to understand the autism spectrum disorder, its challenges, and its scientific solutions in a way that is as easy to understand as possible. In turn, we hope that you will understand the importance of having a “common ground” to understand the differences between oneself and others.
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VARIOUS DISEASES AND THE INTESTINAL MICROBIOTA HAS BEEN REVEALED ONE AFTER ANOTHER, AND IN RECENT YEARS, THE INTESTINAL MICROBIOTA HAS ATTRACTED ATTENTION NOT ONLY FOR DIGESTIVE DISORDERS, BUT ALSO BECAUSE IT IS SAID THAT THE INTESTINAL MICROBIOTA MAY BE ASSOCIATED WITH AUTISTIC SPECTRUM DISORDER (ASD). WE PERFORMED INTESTINAL FLORA TRANSPLANTATION (FMT) IN SEVEN INDIVIDUALS (SIX MALES AND ONE FEMALE) DIAGNOSED WITH ASD. THE ABC-J, CALLED THE ABNORMAL BEHAVIOR CHECKLIST, SCORES AND EVALUATES BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS IN ASD, AND THE SRS-2, CALLED THE INTERPERSONAL RESPONSIVENESS SCALE, IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL TEST ALSO USED AS A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR ASD. THE SRS-2, ALSO KNOWN AS THE INTERPERSONAL RESPONSIVENESS SCALE, IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL TEST THAT IS ALSO USED AS A DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR ASD. In addition, using the Gazefinder, a gaze-measuring device that can objectively distinguish between children with typical development and those with ASD tendencies by following the subjects’ gaze, we examined whether there were any changes in the way the subjects saw things before and after the FMT. THE DATA FROM THESE PSYCHOLOGICAL TESTS AND MEASUREMENTS WERE COMPILED AND FOUND THAT FMT MAY BE AN OPTION FOR IMPROVING ASD DIFFICULTIES. WE REPORT A SUMMARY OF THE DATA COMPILED IN THE PRESENT STUDY AND THE DISCUSSION THAT RESULTS FROM IT.
ASD CASE REPORT
THE POTENTIAL OF INTESTINAL FLORA TRANSPLANTATION (FMT) IN THE TREATMENT OF CHILDREN WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER.
In recent years, the relationship between the intestinal microbiota and the risk of various diseases has been clarified against the background of rapid progress in metagenome analysis technology for intestinal bacteria. The prevalence of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Japan is said to be increasing year by year, and it is now known that the intestinal microbiota of children with ASD shows differences in specific bacterial species and composition patterns and disorders of diversity (dysbiosis). We performed intestinal flora transplantation (FMT) in children with ASD and used the ABC-J and SRS-2 to assess changes in behavior and the Gastrointestinal Symptom Rating Scale (GSRS) to assess changes in gastrointestinal symptoms, in addition to changes in intestinal flora before and after FMT. In addition, changes in gazing targets were assessed using a gazing point distribution measuring device (Gazefinder) to evaluate the difficulty of eye contact and lack of interest in others that are often seen in ASD. In addition, from a psycho-clinical perspective, changes in drawing tests before and after FMT were also discussed. ALTHOUGH THE NUMBER OF CASES IS STILL SMALL, SOME OF THE CASES EXPERIENCED BY OUR STUDY GROUP SUGGEST THAT FMT IS EFFECTIVE IN IMPROVING SYMPTOMS RELATED TO AUTISM, SUGGESTING THAT FMT MAY BE AN OPTION IN THE CARE OF CHILDREN WITH ASD. WE REPORT OUR EXPERIENCE IN THIS CASE STUDY, INCLUDING PSYCHO-CLINICAL CONSIDERATIONS.
*ASD-related presentations (keynote speeches and ASD case reports) will be available online free of charge to individuals and families with autism spectrum disorders. Please register here.
Basic Research Report
Exploration of the use of ultrafine bubble NanoGAS® in the medical field and research on its practical application
NanoGAS®︎ utilized for intestinal flora transplantation (FMT) has an excellent track record in the treatment of a wide range of diseases, including not only intestinal diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis, but also skin diseases such as atopy and allergies, and mental disorders such as depression and autism. Scientific validation of NanoGAS®︎-FMT is underway, with a scientific paper on its efficacy against diabetic diseases being published in 2020. Among microbubbles, Nanobubble, with its special physical properties, is expected to have further potential to make a significant contribution to health science in general. Therefore, we have started various basic clinical studies from 2020 with the aim of utilizing NanoGAS®︎ in the fields of medicine, drug discovery, and food, and are evaluating its usefulness as a new material. We are pleased to present new findings on three research topics in the fields of pharmaceuticals, drug discovery, and food at the conference.
