Evaluation of a low cost macroscopic nontreponemal test for syphilis using reusable supplies

, : Evaluation of a low cost macroscopic nontreponemal test for syphilis using reusable supplies. SMJ Singapore Medical Journal 27(5): 410-412

The rapid plasma reagin (RPR) 18-mm circle card test for syphilis serology has been used widely by many laboratories because of the stability of the antigen and the test results are read macroscopically. It is, however, a costly test for many routine laboratories. Our laboratory has modified the test using the same antigen but other items are reuseable. As a result the cost of the test is reduced by over 90%. The test compares favourably with the original RPR (97.5% agreement) and other macroscopic nontreponemal tests which are commercially available.

Urocortin, a new mammalian member of the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) family has been proposed to be the endogenous ligand for CRF receptor 2 (CRF-R2). We studied the influence of intravenous urocortin on gastric emptying and the role of...
