The Disease

General Information

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted bacterial infection caused by the bacteria Treponema pallidum. The disease is highly contagious however infected individuals are often unaware of infection. The infection occurs in three stages. The primary infection manifests 10-90 days following exposure and causes small painless sores commonly in the genital region or around the mouth. The secondary infection lasts up to three months and causes a rosy “copper penny” rash on the palms and feet, groin warts, swollen lymph glands, fever and weight loss.
The final stage of infection can lead to more severe problems with the heart, brain and nervous system, leading to paralysis, blindness, dementia, deafness, impotence and death.

Syphilis can be prevented by avoiding intimate contact with infected individuals or alternatively using a condom. Although the prevalence of syphilis has declined dramatically since the development of penicillin in 1940, the disease still has a significant presence in sub-Saharan Africa, contributing to 20% of prenatal deaths.

The disease is projected to decline in future years, with several vaccines in development. Prior to the millennium approximately 12 million people were infected with syphilis however recently the rate of infection has dropped dramatically. Statistics show that males are more susceptible. If left untreated the mortality rate of the disease has been shown to be between 8% and 58%, emphasizing the importance of getting checked and treated.

Treatments

The choice of syphilis treatment depends on the time since infection. If the individual has been infected for less than one year then a single dose of penicillin, tetracycline, doxycycline or another suitable antibiotic is sufficient to treat the disease. If the individual has been infected for over a year then multiple doses of the antibiotic will be required for treatment.

Syphilis Test Kits FAQs



Who needs a syphilis test kit?
Anyone who has had unprotected sex could be at risk of contracting syphilis, and should be checked before having sex again to prevent spreading the disease. It is also possible to contract the disease through other intimate contact such as kissing; it is advised to be checked for syphilis if you have kissed anyone with syphilis, or if you start to show symptoms of syphilis.
Can I use the syphilis test kit at home?
The syphilis test kits are easy to use diagnostic test kits that require a blood sample from the patient. The tests should not be used at home unless a qualified medical professional is present to obtain the blood sample and dispose of the test according to local sanitary regulations. No other reagents are needed other than those enclosed in the test kit. The results can be read visually without the need of any instruments within 15 minutes.
Is AccuQuik™ syphilis test kit 100% accurate?
The test is 99.2% accurate. Although the test is very accurate, it is only a qualitative filter detector and should not be used as a final test for the blood donor. If the test is positive, it is recommended to consult a doctor for further testing to confirm diagnosis.
Which test is better, the strip test or the cassette test for syphilis?
Both strip and cassette tests are simple diagnostic tools to determine the pathological state of the user. The basic components of each test are the same, but a cassette test is a more robust model of the strip test, consisting of a plastic rod device with a small well where the sample must contact the surface. The strip test is effectively an exposed version of the cassette test. Both tests are equally as accurate however the cassette is easier to use and therefore more reliable as there is less room for human error.
