Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't provide any clinical context for why the original test was obtained, whether there were any signs or symptoms of syphilis infection, what the RPR titer result was prior to treatment, and how many injections of penicillin you received. I suggest you discuss these results with your doctor or an infectious disease specialist.

Never had signs of syphillis
Detectable Hiv
