    Abstract:

    Serology testing continues to be an indispensable tool for the management of several disease states, especially treponemal screening to monitor syphilis infection in the US. Come to this educational seminar to learn about key objectives in treponemal screening:

    • Discuss CDC Guidelines on treponemal screening: the necessity to perform two independent laboratory syphilis tests to confirm diagnosis
    • Describe diagnostic methods for diagnosing syphilis infection: the order in which they are performed impacts interpretation of results
    • Describe the benefits of screening with a treponema-specific IgG/IgM assay, followed by a non-treponemal test for confirmation: the "Reverse Sequence" algorithm
