Scientists from Canada have created pills that help get helpful bacteria into the body to fight infection. The pills are made of extracted and cleaned bacteria from the poop of a relative then put into capsules that are triple coated to get into the intestines. The most common infection that they are used to treat is Clostridium difficile which infects about half a million Americans a year and can reinfect easily after the first time. Twenty seven people who had had C-diff were treated with the pills and they haven't been infected since. The scientists are now working on ways to freeze poop to preserve and transfer it from donors from one place to a patient in another and find bacteria that helps fight C-diff the best.
