Lipid composition of treponemal strains.
Venereal disease and treponematoses--the epidemiological situation and WHO's control programme.
TLDR
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.
[The current status of syphilis].
Fluorescent treponemal antibody testing.
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
