To better explore the genetic(More)
The level of knowledge of epilepsy among patients has been shown to be key to the management of the condition. However, few studies have assessed the level of knowledge of epilepsy in a large population sample. The objectives of this study (which was part of a larger research project) were first to compare the level of epilepsy-related knowledge between(More)
The Streptococcus Anginosus Group (SAG) represents three closely related species of the viridans group streptococci recognized as commensal bacteria of the oral, gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts. The SAG also cause severe invasive infections, and are pathogens during cystic fibrosis (CF) pulmonary exacerbation. Little genomic information or(More)
