Rôle de la protéine de liaison au collagène de Streptococcus mutans dans l’hémorragie intracérébrale : de la physiopathologie à la prévention

Abstract : In France, strokes are the third highest cause of death among men, and the and leading cause of death among women. They also are the main cause of disability among adults. Two main kinds of strokes can be distinguished in terms of aetiology: the haemorrhagic stroke, which happens when an intracerebral blood vessel bursts, and the ischemic stroke, which occurs when a cerebral artery is blocked. Although haemorrhagic strokes only accounts for 15% of all strokes, they carry a high mortality rate. In recent years, a correlation has been discovered between Streptococcus mutans (the main pathogen responsible for tooth decay) and intracerebral haemorrhage. Identifying new cardiovascular risk factors is therefore a public health challenge that could lead to new prevention policies, and consequently to a better patient care.
