Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Biological: - Faecal microbiota transplantation
The capsule FMT transplant consists of faeces obtained from a thoroughly screened, unpaid, anonymous stool donor. Each FMT product is made from 50g faeces diluted in sterile saline (0.9% NaCl) and glycerol, blended, centrifuged and filtered to remove particulate material before transfer to double-layered capsules. The FMT capsules will be stored at - 80 ⁰C until use. On the day of the FMT, the FMT capsules will be thawed to room temperature before treatment.
Other: - Placebo
Placebo capsules consist of NaCl (0.9%) and glycerol added brown food colouring.
