Use of Oral Fluid With a Rapid Treponemal Test for Syphilis Evaluation



Use of Oral Fluid With a Rapid Treponemal Test for Syphilis Evaluation



Sexually Transmitted Diseases 45(9): E65



We aimed to determine if rapid treponemal tests intended for whole-blood specimens could be used to detect treponemal antibody in oral fluid. We found a high sensitivity of oral fluid rapid testing, which increased with increasing rapid plasma reagin titer, suggesting potential for the development of accurate rapid oral syphilis tests.
