Syphilis

Syphilis remains prevalent in developing countries, and is also re-emerging in the developed world.

The sexually transmitted infection (STI) can cause irreparable complications if left untreated. Moreover, co-infection with HIV is rapidly increasing as the virus is two to five times easier to acquire when syphilis sores are present.  To combat this resurgence in syphilis cases, we offer a complete panel of screening, diagnosis and activity monitoring tests.
