Researchers are continuing to uncover the connections between the health and diversity of our gut microbes in multiple areas of our health. ACT partners with world leaders in their field to investigate and develop targeted microbiota therapies. The research team will be available to answer questions during the social hour, and present recent findings during the event program.
Interested in actively enjoying the outdoors as the fall colors emerge while supporting a cause? Consider joining ACT’s Twin Cities Marathon or 10-Mile team. This year is the 25th anniversary of the ten-miler, and the only way to join this sold-out event is through a charity team. Runners on ACT’s team receive a complimentary race shirt.

Achieving Cures Tother is on a mission to save lives by restoring microbial health. Our work is centered on meaningful partnerships. With the Microbiota Therapeutics Program at the University of Minnesota, we continue to treat patients with recurrent C. difficile Infections. To date, we have treated over 2,000 patients with a 98% cure rate. In addition, the microbiota therapies our partners at the University of Minnesota formulate, are provided to clinical trials with academic partners around the country.
Our current research projects include:

Learn directly from some of our partners on the exciting advancements being made in this frontier of medicine.
Dr. Armin Rashidi, M.D., Ph.D., Fred Hutchison Cancer Center Complications with Acute Leukemia & Stem Cell Transplantation
“The patients I take care of and try to improve their outcomes through microbiome therapies are arguably among the most fragile and most immunocompromised patients in medicine.”
Dr. Byron Vaughn, M.D., M.S., University of Minnesota Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
“The most exciting part of our study was that [Ulcerative Colitis patients] on [Intestinal Microbiota Transplant] capsules had a reduction in their symptoms, compared to people with placebo. The people who received placebo were then given a chance to have the active capsules and when they were on the active capsules, their symptoms got better too. We have a really strong argument that our capsules are clinically effective.”
Rima Rachid, M.D., Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School Food Allergies
In our clinical trial “there was a 60% efficacy response [of reduced reactivity to peanuts] just from one Fecal Microbiota Transplant. It takes about 6 months of oral immunotherapy to reach that level of peanut tolerance.”
Your partnership makes a life-changing difference, providing hope and healing to suffering patients and their families. Thank you for your support.
