    Background: Non-febrile illness seizures may present in previously healthy children as afebrile seizures associated with minor infections, such as mild gastroenteritis or respiratory tract infections, and are linked to a ...
  • Onywera, Harris; Williamson, Anna-Lise; Ponomarenko, Julia; Meiring, Tracy L. (Frontiers, 2020)
    While the human microbiota especially that of the gut, cervix, and vagina continue to receive great attention, very little is currently known about the penile (glans, coronal sulcus, foreskin, and shaft) microbiota. The ...
