Launching the MEBO International TMAU Test and Research Program with Cleveland Clinic

One of America's Top 4 Hospitals
U.S. News and World Report 2011-12 'Best Hospitals' Rankings.

On Friday, September 2, 2011, MEBO Research took 35 TMAU Urine Test sample kits to the FedEx Office bound for sufferers in the US, Canada, and Europe. It had only been two days that these kits had arrived in MEBO’s Headquarters in Miami, and now they were all gone, while even more sufferers were expressing interest in testing with the renowned Cleveland Clinic. Much to the lab’s surprise, a new order was placed right away for more kits, and now there is another batch of 50 kits being sent to MEBO’s Headquarters to meet the new orders placed by sufferers. In addition to the three countries/continent to where the kits were shipped five days ago, additional interest in testing has been expressed by persons in the Philippines, Malaysia, Israel, the Caribbean, Mexico, and South America. It simply was not realistic for the lab to send us only 35 kits on the second order, and instead, the lab opted to send MEBO 50 additional kits, as the waitlist is growing quickly.

MEBO Research and the Cleveland Clinic have arrived at a very low rate offer for this test with the condition that MEBO Research perform the administrative logistics aspect of the program, such as taking orders, invoicing, shipping, and to transpose the test results provided by the lab into individual Test Results Reports to be emailed to sufferers. This report can be used by each sufferer to show his or her physician. This Test Results Form will also contain information on the interpretation and comparison of test results of other test programs, and wil make references to the genetic (Primary) and acquired (Secondary) types of Trimethylaminuria as approved by Dr. Stanley Hazen, MD, PhD, who oversees this program. Dr. Hazen will not receive the names or personal information of any person testing, and instead will receive an identifying number. He will compile the data of these test results for potential future research. Anyone not comfortable with these conditions should not test.


  1. PRESTIGEOUS INSTITUTION: The distinguished reputation the Cleveland Clinic has earned through the years amongst the medical and research communities around the world would probably be the primary reason this program has had such an enthusiastic response from sufferers. This institution has been ranked “One of America’s Top 4 Hospitals” by the U.S. News and World Report 2011-12 ‘Best Hospitals’ Ranking.
  2. DISTINGUISED EXPERT OVERSEEING THE PROGRAM: The prominent credentials of the medical doctor/researcher in charge of this program, Dr. Stanley Hazen, M.D., Ph.D. His very brief introductory biography can be found in a post in this blog, MEBO's new International TMAU Test Program with the Cleveland Clinic
  3. THE VERY LOW COST OF THE TEST: only $150 plus round trip shipping using special rates FedEx offers MEBO Research. For example, the International Priority 3 Business Days shipping cost from Miami to Manila, Philippines is $33.54, and the return 2 Business Days shipping cost is $44.72. The total cost for someone in Manila to do a urine test with Cleveland Clinic is $228.26/USD. To compare with other continents, to Israel it is $229.50/USD, to Italy, it is $215.29/USD, and most within the US is less than $200/USD including round trip shipping costs
  4. PERIODIC SPECIAL RATE OFFERS: From time to time, when the demand for the test allows it, MEBO will offer the option of requesting a second test collection kit in the same shipment for an additional $100/USD
  5. PRIMARILY AIMS TO REACH ALL SUFFERERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD: What sets this international program apart from any other TMAU Test/Research Program is that its primary focus is to include all sufferers from anywhere in the world to participate in initiating and taking advantage of testing and research opportunities.
