Congenital rubella in babies of south Asian women in England and Wales: an excess and its causes.
TLDR
Examination of the ethnic origin of pregnant women requesting laboratory testing after contact with rubella or rash and of women with laboratory confirmed rubella in pregnancy suggested that the disease was being underdiagnosed in pregnant Asian women, contributing to the increased incidence of the syndrome in Asians. Expand
Studies on the Reproducibility and Specificity of the Treponemal Immobilization Test*†
TLDR
The behaviour of the Treponemal Immobilization Test withnonsyphilitic seraisined to establish the criteria of negativity, its specificity is considered, and the conclusions reached are applied toroutine sera. Expand
Effect of selective vaccination on rubella susceptibility and infection in pregnancy.
TLDR
Selective vaccination has reduced susceptibility to rubella in the childbearing population, but it is suggested that mass vaccination of children of both sexes should be added to the existing policy to control circulation of wild rubella virus and reduce the risk of infection to pregnant women who remain susceptible.

Treponemal haemagglutination test.
The introduction of the treponemal immobilization (TPI) test by Nelson and Mayer (1949) provided the first verification test for syphilis which proved fully acceptable to the clinician. After 20Expand
Studies on the Treponemal Immobilization Test. III. Use of the TPI as a Verification Test in Suspected Latent Syphilis*†
In latent syphilis the diagnosis frequently rests purely on serological grounds, there being no clinical or epidemiological evidence to corroborate the serological findings. In these circumstances, aExpand
Morbidity after termination of pregnancy in first trimester.
TLDR
No correlation was apparent between the presence of vaginal pathogens before termination and the development of untoward sequelae postoperatively, and neither the history nor clinical examination before termination would have indicated that chlamydial or mycoplasmal infections were present, or that postoperative complications were likely to occur.

Serology of the Venereal Diseases*

  • Medicine
  • The British journal of venereal diseases
  • 1 March 1962
TLDR
The serology of the venereal diseases, but it concerns in very large part that of syphilis or, to be more exact, that of the treponematoses and of biological false positive reactions. Expand
The distribution of complement-fixing antibody and growth-inhibiting antibody to Mycoplasma hominis.
TLDR
The growth of mycoplasms can be inhibited by specific antibody and TaylorRobinson, Purcell, Wong & (Shanock) have developed a sensitive metabolic inhibition test which allows the measurement of growth-inhibiting antibody in human sera. Expand

An Examination of the Treponemal Wassermann Reaction and Reiter Protein Complement-Fixation Test*
  • P. Sequeira
  • Medicine
  • The British journal of venereal diseases
  • 1 September 1959
TLDR
The probable antigenic structure of both theNichols andReiter strains oftreponemata is shown, and it is not unlikely that there areother antigens, orthatsome, forexample theprotein fraction, aremixtures of antIGens. Expand
