  • INTRODUCTION: Although control measures of maternal and congenital syphilis are available in Brazil, difficulties exist within the healthcare network in providing a laboratory diagnosis of the infection during the prenatal period.
  • The objective of this study was to confirm the presence of Treponema pallidum by PCR in women with positive VDRL serology and lethal pregnancy outcomes, i.e., abortion, stillbirth and neonatal death.
  • Serum samples and DNA from whole blood were obtained at the time of screening by the VDRL test.
  • RESULTS: During the study period, 0.7% (36/4,912) of women with lethal pregnancy outcomes presented a positive VDRL test.
  • Among women who were submitted to the VDRL test during the prenatal period, only four of the nine seroreactive patients underwent treatment.

  • [Title] 'Laboratory Procedures' associated with 'Positive Vdrl': Top Publications.
  • [Transliterated title]
  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Laboratory Procedure' for 'positive vdrl'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Laboratory Procedure'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.
  • Results: Group one includes 21 publications, and group two 612 publications.
  • Here are the top 10.

  • [Title] Neurosyphilis in the age of AIDS: clinical and laboratory features.
  • The aim of our study was to identify and report the clinical and laboratory profile of neurosyphilis, comparing features of HIV-infected and HIV-negative patients.
  • A retrospective investigation of all cases of neurosyphilis, defined as positive VDRL test on cerebrospinal fluid, diagnosed at Hospital das Clínicas, Ribeirão Preto School of Medicine between January 1988 and December 2005, was carried out.
  • HIV-infected patients were younger (34.6 years), presented with a higher frequency of the early forms of neurosyphilis, higher titers of serum VDRL and higher mean proteinorrachia at the suboccipital level.
  • Neurosyphilis is still characterized by clinical polymorphism and there are significant differences in its epidemiological, clinical and laboratory profile when HIV-infected patients are compared with HIV-negative patients.

  • [Title] Prevalence survey of infection with Treponema pallidum among HIV-positive patients in Tehran.
  • OBJECTIVE: To identify the frequency of syphilis among Iranian HIV-positive patients.
  • The lab tests including CD4 cell count, cerebrospinal fluid, veneral disease research laboratory (VDRL), fluorescent treponema antibody-absorption (FTA-Abs) and viral load were performed for all the patients.
  • RESULTS: Of all 450 HIV-positive patients, 24 (5.3%) had a positive VDRL test and only two men had a FTA-Abs positive test which means 0.45% of them had a definite co-infection of syphilis.
  • 65.3% of the HIV-positive patients were injection drug users that the co-infection prevalence of them was 0.7%.

  • Background: There are articles published each month which present 'Laboratory Procedure' for 'vdrl test'.
  • Finding such articles is important for researchers, clinicians, and patients.
  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Laboratory Procedure'.

  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 46 year old HIV-positive male patient came in to our emergency department in the late evening with acute fever, rapidly progressive cephalgia and photophobia.
  • A reactive Treponema pallidum particle agglutination (TPPA) assay with positive Treponema pallidum-specific IgG/IgM immunofluorescence as well as a highly reactive Veneral diseases research laboratory (VDRL) test confirmed the diagnosis.
  • Liquor pleocytosis, liquor protein elevation and a highly positive VDRL test in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were interpreted in context of the clinical symptoms as neurosyphilitic manifestations within an early syphilis infection (stage II).
  • Advanced endocrine laboratory testing revealed hypopituitarism.
  • CONCLUSION: We report to the best of our knowledge the first case of a HIV-positive patient with acute hypophysitis and hypopituarism due to early neurosyphilis infection.

  • The Bordet-Gengou test and VDRL test made in Russia or abroad are equally effective in analysis of positive samples of liquor and twice surpass the same capacity of micro-precipitation reaction with cardiolipin antigen in case of neurosyphilis with symptoms and thrice surpass in case of asymptomatic neurosyphilis.
  • VDRL test is a simple standardized nontreponema reaction which can substitute labor-consuming non-unified liquorologic complex in laboratory diagnostic of neurosyphilis.
  • The testing of liquor on the basis of micro-precipitation reaction with cardiolipin antigen is non-effective and results in false negative results in Bordet-Gengou and VDRL positive tests determining high risk of erroneous clinical considerations.

  • Prozone phenomenon and biological false positive (BFP) reaction are two shortcomings of this test.
  • Quantitative estimation of VDRL is essential in treatment evaluation.
  • CSF VDRL test is very specific for neurosyphilis though its sensitivity is low.

  • However these articles are spread across thousands of journals, and there are many types of 'Quantitative Concept'.
  • This makes searching and locating the relevant publications a challenge.
  • We have used BioMedLib's semantic search technology to address the issue, and gathered all the pertinent publications in this review article.
  • Methods: We categorized the publications we found into two groups.
  • We used the strength of textual-association to separate the groups.
  • In group one there are publications with the strongest evidence of association. We focused finding the most relevant publications pertinent to our goal, rather than combining them into a conclusion section. Such textual synthesis will be the focus of our next project.

  • [Title] Syphilis seroprevalence among patients attending a sexually transmitted disease clinic in West Bengal, India.
  • Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and is a major public health concern in India.
  • Blood samples were collected from 250 consecutive patients per year (a total of 1,250 samples over 5 years); the patients attended the STD clinic for 12 weeks (October-December) each year, and the serostatus of syphilis was determined qualitatively with the Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) test using serum samples.
  • A quantitative VDRL test was then performed at a dilution of 1:8 using serum samples that yielded positive results in the qualitative VDRL test.
  • Finally, serum samples that yielded positive results in the quantitative VDRL test were also subjected to the Treponema pallidum hemagglutination assay (TPHA).
  • The serum samples that yielded positive results in both the tests were considered syphilis seropositive.
  • All seropositive serum samples from the quantitative VDRL test were also found to be positive results in TPHA.

  • Each panel consisted of both positive and negative serum samples.
  • The results confirmed that the use of a single nontreponemal test (the Venereal Disease Research Laboratory [VDRL] and the rapid plasma reagin [RPR] tests) is the least sensitive means of identifying samples that are positive for syphilis antibodies.
  • We also found that the interpretation of the results of manual techniques, such as the RPR test, the VDRL test, the Treponema pallidum hemagglutination (TPHA) assay, and the T. pallidum particle agglutination (TPPA) assay, can vary greatly among different TSs and operators.
  • However, the determination of syphilis on the basis of the results of a single test is not sufficient for an accurate screening; and all blood units should thus be assessed by two distinct treponemal tests, that is, a total Ig EIA and the TPHA or the TPPA assay.

  • The antibodies (IgG/IgA anti-Ct) against chronic Chlamydia trachomatis inflammation were positive.
  • Parasitological research and digestibility test were performed, resulting a latent chronic bowel inflammation, including certain enteroinvasive pathogens, such as, Salmonella, Shigella, Yersinia and Campylobacter (Enteric Pathogens Group, EPG) and Escherichia Coli pathogens (Escherichia Coli Pathogens Group, ECPG).
  • The Salmonella typhi-DNA resulted positive, while 90% of the total microbic charge (TMC) was represented by C. freundi in culture analyses.
  • Interpreting the VDRL positive test as early triggering of autoimmune disease, a few acute phase proteins as a pauci-symptomatic chronic phlogistic process, the amylase and alkaline phosphatase alterations as tissue markers of early intestinal inflammation, the Widal's reaction positivity together with the precocious clinical and faecal manifestations, this study suggests the prime triggering role of these atypical pathogens to cause a chronic low grade autoimmune response against the tissue/organ susceptible target, causing inflammaging phenomenon in young patient with chronic latent infection by Salmonella typhi, leading to Reiter's syndrome, in HLA-B27 positive patient.

  • [Title] Field performance of a rapid point-of-care diagnostic test for antenatal syphilis screening in the Amazon region, Brazil.
  • We evaluated an immunochromatographic point-of-care (POC) syphilis test in 712 pregnant women under field conditions in remote communities of the Amazon region (Brazil), and identified risk factors for syphilis.
  • Women were screened by POC test using whole blood obtained by fingerprick, the fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption (FTA-Abs) test as the gold standard and the Venereal Diseases Research Laboratory (VDRL) test to determine test performance in active syphilis.
  • Among women, 2.2% had syphilis (positive FTA-Abs) and 0.8% active syphilis (FTA-Abs and VDRL positive).
  • In all, 2.2% of samples were positive by the POC test.
  • The sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values were 62.5% (95% confidence interval [CI]: 38.6-81.5), 99.1% (95% CI: 98.1-99.6), 62.5% (95% CI: 38.6-81.5) and 99.1% (95% CI: 98.1-99.6), respectively.
  • The POC test identified 62.5% (10/16) of syphilis cases, 66.7% (4/6) of active syphilis cases and all high-titre syphilis cases (VDRL > 1:8).
  • The rapid test performed moderately well as a screening tool for low-risk populations.

  • [Title] Evaluation of the usefulness of Treponema pallidum hemagglutination test in the diagnosis of syphilis in weak reactive Venereal Disease Research Laboratory sera.
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Biological false positive (BFP) reactivity by the Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) test used for diagnosis of syphilis is a cause for concern.
  • The use of the VDRL as a screening procedure is challenged by some studies.
  • The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence of BFP reactions in different subject groups and to assess the usefulness of Treponema pallidum hemagglutination (TPHA) test in low titre VDRL reactive sera.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 5785 sera from sexually transmitted diseases (STD) clinic attendees, antenatal clinic attendees, husbands of antenatal cases, peripheral health centres attendees (representing community population) and from patients referred from different OPDs/wards were screened for BFP reactions by the VDRL test.
  • Sera reactive in the VDRL test were confirmed by the TPHA test.
  • RESULTS: Out of 80 qualitative VDRL reactive sera, 68 had <1:8 titre on quantitation and TPHA was positive in 59 samples, indicating BFP reactivity in 0.2% in all the subject groups.
  • VDRL and TPHA positivity was highest (76%) in the age group of 20-29 years.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of this study highlight that the TPHA positivity was high (86.8%) in sera with VDRL titre less than 1:8.
  • Therefore, for the diagnosis of syphilis, it is recommended that a confirmatory test such as TPHA should be performed on all sera with a reactive VDRL regardless of its titre.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • CDC recommends syphilis serologic screening with a nontreponemal test, such as the rapid plasma reagin (RPR) or Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL) test, to identify persons with possible untreated infection; this screening is followed by confirmation using one of several treponemal tests.
  • Recently, the availability of automatable treponemal enzyme and chemiluminescence immunoassays (EIA/CIA) has led some laboratories to adopt a reverse sequence of screening in which a treponemal EIA/CIA is performed first, followed by testing of reactive sera with a nontreponemal test.
  • This report describes the results of that analysis, which indicated that among sera reactive on initial screening with a treponemal EIA/CIA, 56.7% had a nonreactive RPR test.
  • Among discordant sera, the rate of nonreactive confirmatory treponemal tests was 2.9 times higher in a population with low prevalence of syphilis, suggesting that the low-prevalence population had a higher percentage of false-positive test results.
