  • 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] 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] '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.
  • Jindal N et al: Prevalence of syphilis and biological false positive reactions in VDRL test among injecting drug users: a preliminary study.

  • [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%.
