Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, first of all plasmapheresis is used to remove harmful antibodies. Syphilis antibodies are not harmful as it was produced while fighting the infection. Secondly there are no indications of plasmapheresis to use as a treatment to remove syphilis antibodies.

Enjoy a beautiful moment with your loved one safely.
