How can we use microbial-derived metabolites to prevent GvHD?

Microbial-derived metabolites are small, easily synthesized molecules that may offer the same benefits as fecal microbiota transplant, without concerns for transmitting infectious diseases, like COVID-19. Orberg envisions that metabolites could be administered prophylactically to patients undergoing stem cell transplantation.
