Rapid, point-of-care tests for syphilis: The future of diagnosis

An international research team, led by the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre, has demonstrated that rapid and point-of-care tests (POC) for syphilis are as accurate as conventional laboratory tests. The findings, which were published in PLOS ONE, call for a major change in approach to syphilis testing and recommend replacing first line laboratory tests with POC tests globally, especially in resource-limited settings.
