Risk increased for new sequelae attributed to SARS-CoV-2 infection, including chronic respiratory failure, myocarditis, anxiety, fatigue.
This study’s main objective was to compare the SARS-CoV-2 test results using a self-collected swab sample with the results of a professionally collected swab sample.
The study authors gathered data on individual HIV viral load trajectories at the population-level following the introduction of universal test and treat in sub-Saharan Africa.
Researchers conducted testing during a nursing home outbreak where paired respiratory specimens were collected to assess performance of the BinaxNOW antigen test compared to virus culture and RT-PCR.
Investigators adapted a simple compartmental epidemic model to simulate SARS-CoV-2 spread, death, and associated costs in the US in an effort to understand the role of at home testing.
Researchers examined mammography and colonoscopy rates among commercially insured US adults before and after the declaration of the COVID-19 public health emergency to assess changes in screening.
Using artificial intelligence algorithm techniques, the system identifies regions of interest during colonoscopy, which can help clinicians determine whether further assessment is needed.
Researchers examined correlations between SAT, IMAT, and pectoralis PM areas from chest CT with mortality in individuals with COPD.
Researchers systematically reviewed literature to understand the performance and sensitivity of alternative sample types compared with that of nasopharyngeal swabs for the diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2.
The io instrument processes a single-use cartridge that contains all reagents for testing collected vaginal swabs and male urine samples.
Researchers conducted a cross-sectional study among HCP at 4 large health care systems in 3 US states to assess the risk factors associated with SARS-CoV-2 seropositivity.
Study authors assessed the economic trade-offs of expanding and accelerating testing for SARS-CoV-2 across the United States in different transmission scenarios.
Study authors assessed the diagnostic accuracy of saliva NAAT for COVID-19 due to the increased resources, such as trained personnel, required for nasopharyngeal swab NAAT.
A new point-of-care lateral flow assay featured the same sensitivity as mycobacterial culture in detecting tuberculosis meningitis in adults with HIV.
The COVID-19 Reporting and Data System (CO-RADS) in combination with a CT severity score are easy to use diagnostic tools to guide clinicians in diagnosing COVID-19.
Investigators summarized the evidence on the efficacy and adverse effects of antifungal agents in patients with hematological disease or undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Researchers compared a novel reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification method to the gold standard, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, and assessed the accuracy in detecting SARS-CoV-2.
In hospitalized patients with COVID-19, the routine use of molecular point-of-care testing in emergency department admissions was associated with a large reduction in time to results compared with laboratory PCR testing.
Study authors assessed the specificity and positive predictive value of a customized, institutional, early warning score for predicting decompensation in COVID-19 patients.
