Mayo Clinic Opens Center to Reduce C-diff Exposure
Mayo Clinic opens treatment center for C.diff
The Mayo Clinic is opening a new treatment center aimed at reducing the cases of something called Clostridium difficile (C.diff), which is the most common infectious cause of diarrhea in hospitals.
It can happen after exposure to antibiotics.
In response Mayo opened a C.diff clinic at its Rochester campus.
It’s staffed with doctors and a team of researchers, who focus on the infection.
Mayo says patients of the clinic will also have the chance to take part in clinical trials in the search for a new treatment.
