Understanding Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination in Kattupakkam


What is Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination in Kattupakkam?

The Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination Assay (TPHA) is used to detect the amount of antibodies against Treponema pallidum responsible for causing Syphilis, a type of sexually transmitted disease (STD). This test helps confirm a syphilis infection, screen blood donors, and also helps monitor response to ongoing treatment in already diagnosed cases of syphilis.

What does Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination measure?

A Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination test analyzes the presence of antibodies in the blood that are specifically directed against Treponema pallidum, the bacteria that causes syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The presence of Treponema pallidum antibodies indicates that the individual has been exposed to the bacterium, either recently or in the past. Detecting these antibodies can help your doctors know if you have syphilis. Untreated syphilis can spread to your eyes, blood vessels, heart, and brain. A Treponema Pallidum Hemagglutination test can help in early diagnosis and ensure prompt treatment to prevent complications from syphilis.
