Summary of "Сomparison of immunoarrays for syphilis diagnostics produced by co-polymerization immobilization and non-contact printing techniques."

The aim of the study was to investigate the characteristics of immunoarrays (microarrays) produced by co-polymerization immobilization and non-contact printing techniques for enhancing the capacities of syphilis diagnostics. In diagnostic context immunoarrays of both protein immobilization techniques have shown high sensitivity and specificity together with potency to differentiate syphilis stages in serologic assays. The article discloses the advantages and limitations of non-contact printing techniques as well as the results and problems revealed in the study. Solution of these problems in future may provide the development of new serodiagnostic tools with higher accuracy of the results.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Syphilis serodiagnosis employing as the antigen Treponema pallidum obtained from rabbit syphilis orchitis. Treponemes are kept alive for a few hours in a special medium. When syphilitic serum and complement are added and incubated, the treponemes are immobilized, i.e., stop moving.

Syphilis acquired in utero and manifested by any of several characteristic tooth (Hutchinson's teeth) or bone malformations and by active mucocutaneous syphilis at birth or shortly thereafter. Ocular and neurologic changes may also occur.

Cardiovascular manifestations of SYPHILIS, an infection of TREPONEMA PALLIDUM. In the late stage of syphilis, sometimes 20-30 years after the initial infection, damages are often seen in the blood vessels including the AORTA and the AORTIC VALVE. Clinical signs include syphilitic aortitis, aortic insufficiency, or aortic ANEURYSM.

Serologic tests for syphilis.

The stage of syphilis that occurs following the primary (CHANCRE) and secondary stages. The patient is asymptomatic at the latent stage but remains seropositive for the SPIROCHETE.
