Syphilis Genome Sequence Offers Clues To Better Diagnosis, Prevention And Treatment

r more of these surface components might stimulate the immune system to respond to an invasion of T. pallidum when an uninfected person is exposed to syphilis.

"The genome sequence represents an encyclopedia of information on this elusive bacterium," says Dr. Weinstock. "We can now figure out ways to disarm its defenses through vaccines, identify it quickly through new diagnostic tests and eliminate it with specific, targeted antibiotics."

NIAID is a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIAID conducts and supports research to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as HIV disease and other sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, malaria, asthma and allergies. NIH is an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
