  • Diagnostic Automation Inc. offers a Syphilis (TPA) IgM ELISA kit, which is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the qualitative and semi-quantitative detection of IgM-class antibodies to Treponema palladium in serum. (rapidtest.com)
  • Syphilis IgM elisa is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the qualitative detection of antibodies to Treponema palladium (TP) in human serum/plasma.The Syphilis IgM enzyme immunoassay format allows use of a micorplate reader which eliminates subjective interpretation of results and the diagnostic test for syphilis can be automated for high-volume testing.

  • bejel
  • Diagnosis is usually clinical, but as with yaws and bejel, serological tests for syphilis, such as rapid plasma reagin (RPR) and TPHA, will be positive, and the spirochetes can be seen on dark field microscopy of samples taken from the early papules. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • Both 16S rRNA gene sequences, which were identical except for three polymorphic nucleotide positions, and the intergenic spacer PCR indicated that all isolates were of one yet unnamed species, most closely related to Treponema phagedenis . (biomedcentral.com)
  • Usually
  • The chancres are filled with spirochetes and usually resolve spontaneously without therapy approximately 4 weeks after their appearance. (harvard.edu)
  • disease
  • This stage signifies hematogenous dissemination of the spirochetes which can lead to neurologic, ophthalmologic, gastrointestional, and hepatic disease. (harvard.edu)
