Clostridium difficile (C. difficile, C. diff or CDI) is a bacterium associated with the intake of antibiotics which causes diarrhoea. It is easily spread to others, both in hospital and a household environments. C. Diff infections are generally treated with antibiotics. Recurrent infection is successfully treated with faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), however the underlying mechanism of action is not well defined. This study identified a key role of the virome within the transferred...
