C. Diff Study at Wake Research

Clostridium difficile (C. Diff) Study at Wake Research

Have you recently been hospitalized, received antibiotics in the last 3 months, and/or have had diarrhea 48 or more hours after hospitalization? If you answered yes, you could have Clostridium difficile, commonly known as C. diff, a type of bacterial infection.

According to WebMD, older adults in health care facilities are most at risk for developing C. diff, especially if they are also taking antibiotics. This is because the human body contains thousands of different types of bacteria, both good and bad. If the antibiotics accidentally kill too much of the healthy bacteria, then it can throw off the bacterial balance in the gut. When the balance of bacteria in the gut is thrown off, the C. diff bacteria may start to grow out of control, releasing toxins that attack the lining of the intestines causing it to become inflamed.


The most common symptom of C. diff is watery diarrhea that happens several times a day, often times with abdominal cramping. Symptoms of a more serious infection include: diarrhea more than 10 times a day (sometimes with blood in the stool), severe cramping, fever, nausea, loss of appetite/weight loss, dehydration, and rapid heart rate.

C Diff. Clinical Research Trial at Wake Research

Wake Research is currently enrolling people with C. diff for a clinical study testing the effectiveness, tolerability and safety of an investigational medication for C. diff. To find out more about the study and to see if you may qualify, call our office at 919-781-2514 or visit our website.
