    My answers: 1)2 2)3 3)3 4)1 or 2 5)1

    These agree with the key except for #4. If the infections that trigger this syndrome are all streptococcal, one could use "namely"; if streptococcal infections are not the only type, then I would use "such as". If I didn't know, I would use "such as".

    There seems to be a capital "I" that doesn't belong at the beginning of the #2 space. At the beginning of the second line "serotoninergic" is misspelled.

    Re: Research on OCR sufferers

    Why not likewise in the second question. Doesn't the first part mean "similarly"?

    No, there is nothing there for it to be similar to. The second sentence is explaining what was introduced in the first sentence.
