Human placentophagy: What is the microbial composition of raw and processed placental tissue?
View comment
Thank you for your comment. Sadly, women in childbed have no lobby for their wishes and concerns. Funding in this field of research is quite challenging. We had many refusals from foundations who thought this topic is not important.

Hi Carly, Sure, we will publish the results and want everybody to read the final paper. We published the results from our last project on the project website. Further, a sharelink for all backers and people interested was published in a lab note - with this link the publication was available for free 50 days. (https://experiment.com/u/S9Pn7A) If you have any specific questions we are happy to be in contact with you via E-mail. Best, Sophia

Dear Katie, thank you for your message! We´ve got all results back and working on the statistic analysis. We also got the results of the microbiological contamination of our retain samples. This will all be published in my medical thesis. Working hard to get everything done ;-)

Thank you for your comment Denny! We still can´t answer this questions, there is a lack of scientific data on placentophagy. In our study we aim to find out if there is a risk for women who engage in placentophagy due to the bacterial contamination of the tissue. Further, we want to compare preparation methods and their impact on bacterial colonisation of placenta remedies. The good news is: we are about to start. Hopefully by next week we will receive the first placentas from donors to start the analysis.
