Rpr (Definition)

Rapid plasma reagin (rpr) is a blood test that looks for non-specific antibodies that may indicate that the organism (treponema pallidum) that causes syphilis is present. The term "reagin" means that this test does not look for antibodies against the actual bacterium, but rather for antibodies against substances released by cells when they ...Read more

symptom fatigue?

Short answer is : Needing more info on labs and clinical symptoms. ANA positive is sensitive for possible autoimmune disease.but not very specific. Every lab on your ENA panel is important esp they are moderate positive and they all mean something different. Lab is never enough for diagnosis esp rheumatic condition. It is important for you to find a rheumatologist for thorough history and physical exam. ...Read more

Is ELISA test for HIV 1 & 2 antibodies conclusive after 8-9 weeks of exposure? Does NON-REACTIVE mean NEGATIVE?

Is ELISA test for HIV 1 & 2 antibodies conclusive after 8-9 weeks of exposure? Does NON-REACTIVE mean NEGATIVE?

ELISA for HIV: The ELISA test is not conclusive after any amount of time. The ELISA is a screening test and if it comes back positive, a Western blot will need to be done. Non-reactive is a good thing to be and it does mean that you are negative for HIV virus. Although there is a window period when you can have the HIV virus but still have a nonreactive result. Another test may be needed in that case. Suerte ...Read more

My friend test std, results . chlamydia trachomatis  positive, abnormal andnon  reactive negative.  Hsv 2  igG.   2.69.    HSV  1 igG.   37.90. the me?

What's the question?: You don't ask a question -- I'm not sure what information you're looking for. These HSV test results are positive for both HSV1 and HSV2. However, when the HSV1 IgG antibody test is very strongly positive and the HSV2 result is much lower, as in your friend, the HSV2 result sometimes is false. Additional testing, preferably with a Western blot test, can sort it out. ...Read more

My 3yrs baby dengu NS1or IGg negative but IGm show wekly positive and plates 169000 what mean this reports?

My  3yrs baby dengu NS1or IGg negative but IGm show wekly positive and plates 169000 what mean this reports?

Platelet count is: normal. This is a good sign. Negative NS1 usually means that whatever your baby's illness is, Dengue is not likely. Negative IgG means your baby hasn't had Dengue before. A weakly (+) IgM could be early Dengue, but it could be something else. The most important thing is that your baby gets proper supportive care. Example: if he's not drinking, he may need replacement fluids. Namaste. ...Read more

CMIA 4th gen antibody screening test (not antigen) for hiv 1 & 2 @50 days is 0.15 non reactive.Is antibody screening without antigen accurate @7thweek?

Conclusive at 6+ wk: Official advice by many agencies is that stand-alone HIV antibody tests are not conclusive until 3 months. However, with the modern tests in current use, including the test you had, the results actually are conclusive any time 6 or more weeks after exposure. Feel free to have another test at 3 months if another negative result will help you get beyond your fears. But i really isn't necessary. ...Read more

Male 57, hepatitis C antibody result says reactive 14 with cutoff of 1 . Test performed byy ECLIA . How much chance of false positive. Prognosis?

Male 57, hepatitis C antibody result says reactive 14 with cutoff of 1 . Test performed byy ECLIA . How much chance of false positive. Prognosis?

Check viral load: Even when people have high titer hepatitis c antibody responses, some do not have active infection because their immune system cleared their virus on their own. So the first step is to check a hcv viral load (rna). If the virus is detected in the blood then you do have active infection. At that point you need testing to see how much liver scarring (fibrosis) you have. Work with a specialist. ...Read more

How accurate is 12 weeks negative  stds blood test after exposure with unknown status men? HIV Elisa, rpr, hbsag, hcv, herpes.. Can I stop worrying

No more exposures?: If a woman is a worrier, she will worry until she stops exposing herself. So, at this time she can stop worrying and stop exposing herself. If she decides to expose herself again, she will worry again. It's a choice to expose or not to expose; thus, the worrying is her own consequence within her control. ...Read more
