Understanding VDRL-RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) in Asansol


What is VDRL-RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) in Asansol?

The VDRL-RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) test is a blood test that identifies antibodies your body may produce in response to the bacteria causing syphilis, a sexually transmitted disease (STD). It helps detect active syphilis infection and monitor treatment response. This test is available at an affordable price with Tata 1mg labs in Asansol.

The VDRL-RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) test is often used in routine STD screening specifically in sexually active individuals, prenatal care, and blood donation screening. Also consider getting tested if you have symptoms such as genital sores (chancre), skin rash, or swollen lymph nodes which may indicate syphilis infection. Additionally, testing is advised based on your individual risk factors. If your partner has been diagnosed with syphilis, it is important for you to get tested. No fasting is required for this test. Eat and drink as per your daily routine. 

What does VDRL-RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) measure?

The VDRL-RPR (Rapid Plasma Reagin) test looks for antibodies (specific proteins) that react to syphilis in the blood. This means the test doesn't find the actual bacteria that cause syphilis. Instead, it looks for antibodies against substances given off by cells that have been harmed by the bacteria.  Antibodies are a specific type of protein produced by your immune system to fight off any invaders, such as bacteria, viruses, or toxins. Detecting these antibodies can help your doctors know if you have syphilis. Untreated syphilis can spread to your eyes, blood vessels, heart, and brain. But it can be easily cured if treated in the early stages.
