Important] Response to the spread of the new coronavirus



The spread of the new coronavirus continues to cause turmoil around the world.
We understand that many of you reading this site are also going about your daily lives in a state of anxiety.
While obtaining the latest information from reliable news sources, it is important not to panic more than necessary, but to work together with your neighbors and act calmly.

In consideration of the safety of patients, medical institutions, staff, and donors, we, Japanbiome, have decided to take the following measures.

∙ In accordance with the government policy of minimizing outings, one person involved in dispatch operations, etc., and a maximum of two persons will be on duty for a short period of time, while other staff members will work from home in principle.
∙ The rest of the staff will work from home in principle. ∙ After today (March 30), the acceptance of new donor flights will be suspended indefinitely.
∙ All donor stools received after January 16, when the first infection was confirmed in Japan, will not be accepted for use as transplantation fluid.

This decision may make it more difficult for us to provide some of our services, such as simplified responses to inquiries.

For patients currently undergoing transplantation

We currently use only intestinal bacteria provided by donors before January 15, 2020 for the intestinal bacteria (flora) transplants that we accept from our patients.
This is prior to January 16, 2020, when the first confirmed case of novel coronavirus infection in Japan (Kanagawa Prefecture, Chinese male), and we believe it is safe.

Please be assured that for the time being, both donor stools and the Ultra Fine Bubble water used to treat the stools have materials that were in stock prior to the spread of the infection.

For those considering testing or transplantation

Intestinal flora balance tests can be accepted as usual as of March 30, 2020.
Please apply to each affiliated medical institution.

As of March 30, 2020, transplants of intestinal bacteria (flora) can be accepted and shipped as usual.
For donor stools provided before the infection was confirmed in Japan, we have enough stock for transplants for the time being.
However, if the same situation persists for a prolonged period of time, we may run out of stock of some donors, and we may be forced to temporarily stop accepting new transplant patients in the future.

Contact us

We sincerely hope that the situation will be brought under control as soon as possible, and the institute will take all possible measures to ensure “safety first.
If you have any questions, please contact us using the inquiry form on this website or our affiliated medical institutions.
