FDA Approves Pills Made From Human Poop

The FDA has approved Vowst, the first-ever pill made from donated human feces, for people aged 18 and above.

Vowst is the second human feces-derived treatment ever approved by the FDA, following an enema-based treatment cleared for use in December 2022.

Fecal microbiota products made from healthy human gut bacteria offer a new way to prevent recurrent C. diff.

Vowst is made by Seres Therapeutics in collaboration with Nestlé Health Science.

The newly approved pill called Vowst will receive marketing support from food conglomerate Nestlé under a co-commercialization and profit-sharing agreement signed in 2021.

Vowst is expected to be available sometime in June 2023.
