Chemical characterization of fluorescein isothiocyanate-protein conjugates.
Lipid composition of treponemal strains.
Evaluation of the T. pallidum haemagglutination (TPHA) test for syphilis on "problem sera".
Venereal disease and treponematoses--the epidemiological situation and WHO's control programme.
The endemic treponematoses will remain a longterm public health problem until the hygiene and socioeconomic conditions of the populations concerned are improved so as to eliminate low level transmission of the disease.
Fluorescent treponemal antibody test with antihuman immune sera of different specificity.
Fluorescent treponemal antibody testing.
The preparation of a fluorescein isothiocyanate immune serum conjugate is described, which is characterized by its antihuman-globulin titre, FITC/protein ratio and staining effect and a combination of the TPCF test with the cardiolipin complement-fixation test appears to be simpler, more sensitive and cheaper.
Group antibodies in fluorescent treponemal antibody (FTA) test.
This procedure (FTA-ABS) has been shown to be highly specific and sensitive for the sero-diagnosis of syphilis, but group-antibodies could not be absorbed from all sera, which may be explained by the heterogeneity of the group antigens present in saprophytic treponemes.
