As we are gearing up for final stage of our clinical study NCT03582826, we are looking at different subgroups of our participants based on their dietary intake, to find more precise, personalized and powerful solutions for everyone.

We are starting pre-screening our candidates to find qualified participants, based on prior test results and ability to accurately report information.
Participants will be asked to submit their samples to uBiome on as different days in terms of their well-being/mood/symptoms as possible. MEBO is a condition of ups and downs. One day you may be completely odor-free, the next day you may have severe odor episodes - called flares. Our participants will be asked to submit their first sample if they felt they experienced symptoms, or had a day or two different from average. Study participants will be asked to submit responses to our questionnaire about those days.
We will privately follow up with suggestions to improve their wellbeing.
Our new Life-quality Test questionnaire will provide a measure for severity of Metabolic Breath and Body Odor and PATM symptoms.
Here is the first version and we welcome all suggestions and ideas the community may have.
