analysis of the strain relatedness of oral candida albicans in patients with diabetes mellitus using polymerase chain increase our understanding of candida pathogenicity, the identification of those strains most frequently associated with infections is of paramount importance. polymerase chain reaction (pcr)-based methods are extremely effective in differentiating and determining reproducibility, they require minimum starting material and are rapid and simple to perform. in this study, the genetic relatedness of candida albicans was assessed for two geographically different patient groups (london, uk and par ...200617064392
