Specificity sensitivity and reproducibility among the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption test the micro hem agglutination assay for treponema pallidum antibodies and the hem agglutination treponemal test for syphilis






Journal of Clinical Microbiology 14(4): 441-445

Specificity sensitivity and reproducibility among the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption test the micro hem agglutination assay for treponema pallidum antibodies and the hem agglutination treponemal test for syphilis

Using 920 sera, the specificity and reproducibility of the hemagglutination treponemal test for syphilis was compared with those of the fluorescent treponemal antibody-absorption test and microhemagglutination assay for T. pallidum antibodies; all 3 tests were found to be comparable. The hemagglutination treponemal test for syphilis, like the microhemagglutination assay for T. pallidum antibodies, lacked sensitivity in sera from patients with primary syphilis.
