But most people are not Alana Castro.
“My family jokes about how I’ve always been influenced by pop,” said Castro, a 33-year-old nursing student living in San Gabriel. “I’ll talk to someone about shit. Everyone’s talking nonsense. There’s nothing special about it.”
So when Castro saw a promotion for a Tustin medical lab on Instagram and collected stool samples, he signed up. She now pays her daily duty ڈالر 75 per visit several times a week.
“These are my dirty dreams,” he said.
Although the subject of defecation can be very funny and ridiculous, it is not a laughing stock for people who suffer from recurrent C-diphtheria infection, a disease also known as CD-D.
Ceres treatment is looking for a cure for weak bowel disease. After nearly a decade of research and clinical trials, Ceres is ready to introduce the first FDA-approved microbiome therapy that can prevent recurrence of C.
But before they get there, the Massachusetts-based biotech firm needs to donate stools from hundreds of healthy people.
Usually contracted in hospitals, C. diff may be triggered by high doses of antibiotics prescribed to treat other diseases. Antibiotics often infect the “good bacteria” in the gut, causing a large number of bad bacteria, such as C.
While most patients recover, some are caught up in a never-ending cycle of adversity because the balance varies. At this point, trying to treat the C. difference with more and more antibiotics can re-eliminate the good bacteria.
“Diarrhea and pain just keep coming back,” said David Edge, Sears’ chief technology officer. “People are reluctant to leave home.”
Dangerous bacteria are linked to more than 20,000 deaths each year.
Simply put, the new drug will “promote good bacteria,” Edge said, allowing the body to eliminate bad bacteria.
“It’s in capsule form and is given in just three days, not on a permanent basis,” he said.
Earlier this year, Ceres acquired Tustin Lab as its primary donation site. Participants from all over Southern California drop by all day to do their business, which must be done on the spot.
“It’s not just someone sending a sample in the mail,” Edge said. “We have strict control.”
Close to the 5th Freeway, the Tustin site is ideal for both its location and its population, Edge said: “Southern California has a large number of healthy potential donors. This is an area where people are active. Interested in lifestyle and new science.
One such external donor is Mails Bokinski. The 30-year-old La Merda resident and his wife, Shoqeen, are backpackers who walked 1,680 miles from top to bottom in New Zealand a few years ago.
Given his love for living in the countryside, Bokianski doesn’t think fecal matter is a complicated matter.
“When you’re camping, you bring a shovel, you dig holes, you do that, you wipe, you take your toilet paper,” he said. “I’m talking about pop.”
Like Castro, Bokinski discovered the program on Instagram. “I said, ‘Wow, the shit is being paid? Cool,'” he recalled.
Bosiani visits the lab six times a week, usually before heading to his Biola University marketing job.
“You go in, you do your business, you’re in and out in 20 or 30 minutes.
This is a nonsense mission. Due to strict hygiene protocols, Bosianki does not bring his phone into the restroom for entertainment.
Yes, there are days when he just can’t perform. “I’ve been off-schedule sometimes,” he said. “Maybe the out-of-town holidays messed up with me, or I didn’t fully digest what I ate the last time. It can be frustrating because I know how to prepare the ingredients needed for patient treatment.” Rely on donors.
But laxatives are not the same. “Your body needs to be in a natural state,” Bokinski said. “You can’t even take tims.”
Castro has not yet noticed a flaw in his system, but she approached him for the first time last August. “I was like, ‘I’m going to be great at this!’ Then I sat down and panicked, “he said.
The opposite happened last week, when he expressed frustration. “Driving there made me realize I really needed to go,” Castro said. “I went in and asked, ‘Can I go? now? ”
Both Castro and Bokianski say money is not the main motivator – but it is certainly good.
So far, Bokinski has made $ 2,500. His wife is a full-time graduate student, and they have a one-year-old son. “We’re on the same income right now,” Bokinski said. “It’s an easy way to make extra money while helping people who need treatment.” This is a victory. ”
Castro, who is putting himself on the school’s waiting tables, agreed that “money was not my only motivation.”
“I like the aspect of helping other people,” he said. “My friends are laughing at me. I can’t wait to tell them, ‘Look, I’ve made 6,000 just to snatch.
The movement on his side has left him re-evaluating the value of a particular aspect, so to speak, his own value.
“I had to go twice the next day,” Castro said. “I told my boyfriend, ‘Now that I’m getting paid, I feel bad about throwing someone else down the toilet.’ ‘
