Response to therapy following retreatment of serofast early syphilis patients with benzathine penicillin

Academic Article


  • Persistent nontreponemal titers after treatment are common among patients with early syphilis. We retreated 82 human immunodeficiency virus-negative early syphilis participants who were serofast at 6 months using benzathine penicillin. Only 27% exhibited serological response after retreatment and after an additional 6 months of follow-up. © 2012 The Author.
