FMT does not restore faecal fatty acids to donor levels. a Donor-associated faecal fatty acids are distinct from recipients and follow-ups whereas faecal fatty acids do not change significantly after FMT. Shown is the principal coordinate analysis based on the faecal fatty acid levels (Spearman rank distance). b Boxplots showing levels of 14 faecal fatty acids. Statistical significance was calculated using a Wilcoxon rank sum test. P-values were adjusted for multiple testing using the method from Benjamini and Hochberg. Significance (P < .1) is indicated by circles. D: Donor (n = 3), R: Recipients (n = 7), RF: Follow-up (n = 4)
