Gut-Liver-Brain Axis and Alcohol Use Disorder: Treatment Potential of Fecal Microbiota Transplantation

Jennifer T. Wolstenholme, Nikki K. Duong, Emily R. Brocato, Jasmohan S. Bajaj

Alcohol consumption directly affects many organs, including the gut and the bacteria that live in it. Growing evidence suggests that alcohol’s effects on the gut microbiome can have far-reaching consequences, including increased alcohol consumption and progression of alcohol-associated liver disease.

This ARCR review reports on innovative efforts that use fecal microbiota transplantation to alleviate alcohol’s impact on the gut microbiome and its consequences. While early studies have yielded promising results, clinical trials are still needed to confirm the therapeutic potential of fecal microbiota transplantation.
