Syphilis - RPR (1:2) TPHA (1:320)
I was successfully treated for Syphilis in 2013 (after contracting it the same year). I have recently done a follow up test after the penicillin treatment I received with the following test results:

RPR - (1:2)
TPHA (1:320)

Can someone help interoperate what this means? Do I still cary the infection? Do I need to seek treatment again?

Your titer should be going down.  What were your titers at the start?  It may take a long time for them to go to unreactive, or they may never go unreactive even if you were treated successfully.  I think they say they want the RPR titer to go down by a factor of four within six months or something.  So if you started at 1:8 or higher, they might consider you cured.   It's a good idea to keep getting tested if your doctor recommends it.
