Detection of the Treponema pallidum gene and variation of treponemal DNA load before and after therapy
International Journal of STD & AIDS, 05/25/2012
Wang LN et al. – The TP DNA load in blood after treatment was significantly lower than that before therapy. We conclude that the detection of TP DNA in peripheral blood of TP–infected patients is not yet sufficiently sensitive, but we observed that TP DNA load declines significantly after treatment.
