As a result of the importance which the dosage of specific anti-treponemic IgM has acquired in recent years in diagnosis and monitoring of course of syphilis, many attempts have been made to identify a reliable routine test to evidence this type of antibody. A new immunoenzymatic test based on the principle of 'capturing' the IgM is here compared with the 19S (IgM) FTA-ABS test for evidencing IgM in the serum of 13 syphilitic patients.
