Test results

OK, in a routine physical, had a CBC.  Results included VDRL and HIV test.  HIV 1 & 2 said Negative.  So, I know that means no HIV.  But, what is covered in VDRL?  Result said Non Reactive, so that would indicate no STD's - for what it tested for, right?  But, what all would that be indicatiing a NO andswer for?

VDRL I believe is for syphilis and non-reactive means negative.

Thanks much.  In knew non-reactive means negative.  I just wasn't sure what all this test was covering.
