A common complaint conceals complexity
Unlike most sore throats, which are caused by a viral infection, Strep A is a bacterial pathogen. Approximately 11 million people are diagnosed with pharyngeal infections each year. Of these episodes, up to 30% of these infections are Strep A experienced by children, and 15% are Strep A infections experienced by adults.
Strep A is also highly contagious, even by people who show no symptoms of the illness. It is spread by coughs, touching contaminated surfaces, even by drinking from the glass or eating from the same plate an an infected person.
Diagnosed properly and in a timely fashion, this infection is easily treated. But ignored, even minor infections can flare into serious illnesses including: Scarlet Fever, Rheumatic Fever, and other troubling illnesses. Our PIT test eliminates the complexity, enabling physicians to assure their patients, both adults and children, their condition will be relived and cured.
