Challenges and expectations: a journey to a syphilis vaccination
Keywords:Treponema pallidum, genome, culture, Syphilis
The text “Challenges and expectations: a journey to a syphilis vaccination” is a commentary sent to the BJDST pointing out the work to be done to reach the possibilities emphasized by the editorial from Dr. Lorenzo Giacani. The challenges are anchored in having laboratories in Brazil doing culture for Treponema pallidum and joining the global initiative to know the genomic variation of T. pallidum. The expectation is that Brazil, as a country, contributes to the efforts to the development of a Syphilis vaccine.
