Sir i have test last year of RPR which is 1:2 now i have tested RPR is 1:1 & TPHA value was 1:5120 now it is 1:1280 , can u tell me please it is in progress or not ? i have treated with pencilin injection with 1.2 million dose in each buttock.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The treatment was most likely successful. Those tests can remain positive for months to years after treatment. An increase in RPR titer would be more significant than essentially no change.
