Rpr flag: reactive/abnormal Rpr quant high 1:1 reference interval non reactive and non rea<1:1 please explain this test was performed one week ago what does it mean. I was treated for syphilis 5 yrs ago I have no other infections.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

In many people who have been diagnosed with syphilis and treated some time in the past, the RPR test will remain positive forever, even though the infection was treated successfully. Although you don't indicate what the RPR titer was when you were diagnosed, an RPR titer of 1:1 usually means inactive or treated infection.

Cd4 every nine months, due to insurance limitations?
