Hello Dr. is an RPR test and HIV 4th Gen ab ab 1/2 test conclusive at 14 weeks. thanks?

Yes, conclusive: Both tests are 100% conclusive at that time -- in fact, much earlier. That HIV test is conclusive at 4 weeks and RPR at 6 weeks. ...Read more

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

After a 8 year exposure and a 12 month exposure I just got tested for std rpr and hiv duo @ 1 3 6 12 mos and fta abs at 12 mos is it conclusive?

After a 8 year exposure and a 12 month exposure  I just got tested for std rpr and hiv duo @ 1 3 6 12 mos and fta abs at 12 mos is it conclusive?

No syphilis or HIV: For sure you don't have HIV or syphilis, no worries. You have been seriously over tested. The HIV duo test is conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after exposure, and the RPR syphilis at any time 6 weeks or more. YOu didn't need an FTA-ABS test, and all HIV tests beyond for weeks were wasted money. You also should have urine or vaginal swab tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: vdrl/rpr positive for syphilis?

What is the definition or description of: vdrl/rpr positive for syphilis?

Syphilis: Vdrl and RPR are two nonspecific tests that are used to screen serum for syphilis. They are not diagnostic tests because they can be fooled by blood components other than actual syphilis. The test is usually used for general screening of patients without lesions. If the test is positive, it should be followed by a more specific test such as fta-abs. Please talk to your md. They can easily answer. ...Read more

Will tremponal tests (eia, ClIA ) become positive before non tremponal tests (rpr,vdrl)?

Will tremponal  tests (eia, ClIA ) become positive before non tremponal tests (rpr,vdrl)?

It can happen: Revised reply: disregard earlier one if you saw it. At first I misunderstood the question. The newer TP specific IgG/IgM tests (EIA etc) and RPR/VDRL have similar seroconversion times, typically 4-6 weeks. The IgG tests often are positive first, but exact frequency of this isn't yet known -- more study needed. Apologies again if any confusion from earlier reply. ...Read more

How accurate would a RPR test be for late latent syphilis (approx. 24-30 months after unprotected sex)? Or would a FTA-ABS/VDRL be more accurate?

How accurate would a RPR test be for late latent syphilis (approx. 24-30 months after unprotected sex)? Or would a FTA-ABS/VDRL be more accurate?

Both are good: Both are good accurate tests. Most labs start with the inexpensive RPR as a screening test and the do an FTABS if positive. Some labs go straight for VDRL or FTABS. Either way is fine. Both work great. ...Read more

What is the difference between the vdrl test, RPR test and HIV test?

What is the difference between the vdrl test, RPR test and HIV test?

Great question! : The VDRL & RPR check for Syphillus, not HIV. There are different kinds of HIV tests, ranging from identifying the subtypes, the viral load, and antibodies made against the virus. Switching gears, both the VDRL & RPR are only screening tests looking for antibodies made to either the bacteria itself, or to damages from infection. The RPR is faster: http://m.medlineplus.gov/ency/article/003515.htm ...Read more

Untreated: I am sorry to report but you still have syphilis. You need a spinal tap and better, more effective IV treatment for at least ten consecutive days. Your treatment was ineffective and not the correct treatment. Your spinal fluid must be tested for syphilis and after the correct treatment followed repeatedly until you are negative. You could die if this is not properly treated. ...Read more

How do I know if adopted child has growth hormone deficiency, wrong birthdate, or growth restriction?

How do I know if adopted child has growth hormone deficiency, wrong birthdate, or growth restriction?

Have them evaluated: We approach them as an unknown, repeat the basic vaccines and evaluate their needs individually. A growth evaluation often starts with a proposed date of birth, charted height/weights when known & a wrist hand x-ray for bone age. Another study in 6m to a year can see if the bone maturity is progressing.If slow, a hormonal evaluation would be reasonable.If normal, its okay to just watch. ...Read more

What causes fetal growth restriction?

What causes fetal growth restriction?

MF/placental factors: Maternal-fetal and placental etiologies can all cause fetal growth restriction. Severa fetal syndromes can lead to fgr (e.g. Down, patau, triploidy, edwards, noonan's, digeorge). Multifetal pregnancies are at increased risk for fgr; this can result in fetal demise, fetal brain injury, cerebral palsy or even normal outcomes in non-syndromic cases. Placental infarcts, hypertension, lupus: culprits. ...Read more
