STD DISEASES ARE OFTEN TRANSMITTED IN TANDEM, VIEW ALL OUR AT HOME STD TESTS

Syphilis is spread primarily through sexual transmission or intimate contact with an individual who has an open, wet syphilitic sore. The disease is caused by the spirochetal bacteria Treponema pallidum. Signs and symptoms of syphilis vary depending at which of its four stages the disease is detected.

1. The primary stage is evidenced by a single chancre which usually appears between 3 and 90 days after initial exposure. (On average about 21 days.) Lymph node enlargement often occurs in the primary stage which lasts on average a month after the first symptoms disappear.

2. Stage two syphilis occurs 1 to 3 months after the primary infection and is evidenced by a pink rash on the trunk and extremities including hands and feet. On mucous membranes, it may form flat whitish lesions known as Condyloma Latum. These lesions are all infectious. Other symptoms may include a range of flu-like maladies and more serious manifestations of liver and kidney disease and arthritic-like symptoms. These symptoms usually diminish after 1 or 2 months.

3. Stage three syphilis is called the latent stage because the symptoms seem to disappear and there is a sense of normalcy. This is the most dangerous stage because an individual may feel that the problem has disappeared. The Accu-STD-Syphilis test will detect the infection even during this latent period.

4. Stage four the tertiary or final stage of syphilis usually occurs 3 to 15 years after the initial infection. In most cases if syphilis has been diagnosed and treated the individual will not reach the tertiary phase. While the tertiary phase is non-infective many of the symptoms have disastrous consequences. Affected areas include the central nervous system, cardiovascular functions, as well as random balls of inflammation affecting the skin, bone and liver.

Syphilis infects about 15 million people a year largely in developing world countries. It results in just under 2 million pregnancies a year which result in spontaneous abortions or still births. In the last decade rates of syphilis have been increasing in the western world because of unsafe sexual practices and global travel.

Principles of the Accu-STD-Syphilis Test

The Accu-STD-Syphilis test is a 1-step rapid test based on a precise immunoassay of relevant anti-bodies including IgG, IgM, and IgA which are found in blood. The blood reacts with the antigen coding of the test cassette membrane. If there is a positive result a coloured line (T) will appear in the test region. Otherwise no line will appear in the test region which is indicative of a negative result. The test contains an internal control line (C) which indicates a valid test.

THE NEED TO TEST EARLY, AND AS OFTEN AS YOUR LIFESTYLE REQUIRES

The incidence of sexually transmitted disease has continued to increase despite massive public education campaigns, and a lot of taboos about seeking a diagnosis. 20%+ of the public have an STD, and many will spread it. Sexually transmitted diseases include -- HIV, Chlamydia, Gonnorhea, Syphylis, Gential Herpes, Hepatitis and others. Because of a perceived social stigma associated with STD's there is a reluctance to be diagnosed and a feeling that what you don't know cannot hurt you. This is reinforced by the fact many STD's are initially asymptomatic for periods of time.

Remember STD's are an infection, they have no moral component, recognize no demographic distinction, and respond to early treatment.

The Confirmatory Test

The initial test you complete is a primary test. The second confirmatory test is needed to ensure a definitive result. If the primary test indicated a negative result, the confirmatory test is repeated in 20-25 days and if a second negative result is obtained you are negative for syphilis unless you have contracted the disease in the last several weeks and anti- bodies have not yet formed.

If the initial test result was positive, the confirmatory test should be done in 3-6 days. If the second test is positive you should immediately consult a medical professional since you have tested positive for syphilis and your doctor will prescribe a course of action.

If the initial test result is positive, you should presume that you have Syphilis and should act accordingly.

Used test supplies should be handled as though they were potentially infectious, and disposed of appropriately.

NOTE: There is a social responsibility to have the disease treated immediately, inform sexual partners, and use condoms until you are confirmed disease free.
