Session Objectives: Describe the steps used in stool transplantation to restore normal stool flora. Assess differences in hospital-associated Clostridium difficile infection rates based on hospital characteristics. Describe longitudinal colonization with bacterial pathogens and associated antibiotic resistance from birth over the first 12 months of life, and their relationship with infant and household antibiotic and daycare exposure. Identify laboratory test methods used to assess immunity to vaccine preventable diseases.
