When and Why the STD Basic Panel May Be Ordered The STD Basic panel may be ordered when an individual presents with symptoms consistent with an STD, which might include unusual discharge, pain during intercourse, itching, or sores in the genital area. However, many STDs can be asymptomatic, especially in their initial stages. Thus, it's not uncommon for this panel to be ordered as part of routine screening, especially for sexually active individuals or those with multiple sexual partners. Regular testing is crucial because early detection and treatment can prevent complications and potential transmission to partners. What the STD Basic Panel Checks For Chlamydia/Neisseria gonorrhea RNA, TMA: This test employs transcription-mediated amplification (TMA) to detect the RNA of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhea, pathogens responsible for chlamydia and gonorrhea infections respectively. Both are common bacterial STDs that can lead to serious reproductive health issues if left untreated. Herpes Simplex Virus 1/2 IgG Type Specific Antibodies: This test identifies antibodies the body produces in response to Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV). Specifically, it differentiates between HSV-1, primarily causing oral herpes, and HSV-2, responsible for genital herpes. RPR with Reflex to Titer: Rapid plasma reagin (RPR) is a screening test for syphilis. If the RPR test is reactive, a "reflex to titer" is performed to measure the amount of reagin in the blood, providing an indication of the disease's activity. From Basic to Comprehensive While the STD Basic panel offers essential insights into common sexually transmitted infections, for a more holistic understanding of one's sexual health, the STD Comprehensive panel is recommended. In addition to the tests present in the Basic panel, the Comprehensive panel also includes the "Hepatitis Panel, General," which screens for various types of hepatitis, a group of viral infections affecting the liver. Early detection of hepatitis can lead to prompt treatment and reduce the risk of liver-related complications.
