Prima Home STREP A TEST is aimed at anyone who wants to monitor the possible bacterial origin of a pharyngitis.
Group A ß-haemolytic streptococcus (also known as Streptococcus pyogenes) is a gram positive bacterium that causes a variety of pathological conditions and complications such as throat and skin infections, acute glomerulonephritis, sepsis and rheumatic heart disease.
Pharyngitis is commonly caused by viral infections and, more rarely, by bacterial infections, for which antibiotic therapy is required.
Understanding whether a sore throat is caused by the Strep A bacterium or other germs allows you to identify, or rule out, a possible antibiotic treatment.
