So there's many different studies going on right now for the treatment of chronic diarrhea. There's many studies evaluating bacterial overgrowth has a common cause of chronic diarrhea, and there's multiple different types of antibiotics that can be used to treat that. There's multiple studies going on with fecal transplant for patients with chronic diarrhea and recurrent infections, in which stool is actually injected into the colon and the small bowel in order to help increase the flora of the Gi tract and reduce the risk of these recurrent infections that many patients get. Other types of probiotics and therapies are also being studied for the treatment of chronic diarrhea.
