Overview

This up-to-date reference work presents recent technological advances in the laboratory investigation of syphilis. The inability to culture (in vitro) the infecting agent forces clinicians to rely on serology to aid diagnosis and management. For these workers, it is especially important to know about significant improvements in technique due to the sheer number of blood tests that are performed. Such tests, for example, are common for all patients attending genito-urinary clinics, all patients having cardiac or neurological surgical investigations, and all of those attending antenatal clinics. The information presented here will be valuable to a wide range of professionals, from laboratory staff in microbiology, immunology, hematology and blood transfusion to medical students, general practitioners, nurses and lab technicians.
