This is not exactly research on FructMal, but it has great importance for all of us with intestinal issues.  Scientific American has done an article on the work of Jeremy's an excerpt:

".... It is kind of like doing science backward: instead of making hypotheses and then devising experiments to test them, he performs experiments first and tries to decipher his results later. He must sift through the range of chemicals produced by the genes people have, the food they eat, the drugs they take, the diseases they suffer from and the intestinal bacteria they harbor. Those bacteria in particular have become Nicholson’s prime focus. They influence how our bodies break down food and drugs and may explain why food affects people differently..........................recent research suggests that gut microbes play a crucial role in human health and disease. They help us absorb nutrients and fight off viruses and “bad” bacteria; disrupting intestinal colonies, such as with a course of antibiotics, often leads to digestive sickness. In fact, Nicholson says, 'almost every sort of disease has a gut bug connection somewhere.'......"
