AUTOMATED REAGIN TESTING (ART)

AUTOMATED REAGIN TESTING (ART)

A nonspecific, nontreponemal test used for syphilis screening and monitoring of response to therapy in the post chancre period of the primary stage and in the secondary stage when treponemal antibodies are more difficult to detect. When Treponema pallidum, the causative agent of syphilis, invades human tissue, reagin is produced and can be isolated from 7 to 21 days after the appearance of the chancre. Results are reported as the highest titer that produces a positive reaction.
