|Can Syphilis test detect HIV?
Feb 9, 2004
Is it possible to detect HIV infection from the blood test for syphilis, assuming the test is taken after the window period is over?
Response from Dr. Luzuriaga
No, the blood tests for syphilis are specific for that infection and do not provide any information on HIV status.
Herpes zoster virus
