Thank you to our Keynote Speakers from COAST-to-COAST for their insightful presentations & to the 8,752 participants who attended @MedNewsWeek Conference in February 2022. It was a pleasure learning from everyone.
I would also like to thank our great team that helped to make this event possible.

Study looking at the impact of vaccine misinformation found:

-66% of U.S. adults say they would be likely to recommend vaccinating a hypothetical 5-11 yr olds in their household who is eligible for the #Covid19 #vaccine.
-39% of the vaccinated-but-not-boosted hold high levels of misinformation about the effects and safety of #vaccines
-the more that unvaccinated adults worry about getting #long #Covid, the more likely they are to say they will get vaccinated
-40% of the #unvaccinated – or 9% of the total survey sample – are potentially persuadable to be #vaccinated

Study from #England looking at the impact of #SARSCoV2 on #brain #pathology in 785 UK Biobank participants (aged 51–81) imaged twice found:

-brain changes in the following regions:
--greater reduction in grey matter thickness and tissue-contrast in the orbitofrontal cortex & parahippocampal gyrus
--greater changes in markers of tissue damage in regions functionally-connected to the primary olfactory cortex
--greater reduction in global brain size.
- infected participants also showed on average larger #cognitive decline between the 2 timepoints
-these imaging and cognitive longitudinal effects were still seen after excluding the 15 cases who had been hospitalized.

Study from @Yale looking at the association between the #Pfizer #COVID19 #vaccine and #SARSCoV2 positivity among 542 adolescents when the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 was predominant and within 4 months of the vaccine rollout for adolescents showed:
-estimated effectiveness of the #pfizer vaccine was 91%, with 93% protection against symptomatic infections & 85% effectiveness against asymptomatic infection
Conclusion: These findings suggest that the #Pfizer #vaccine was effective in adolescents within 4 months of #immunization, including against infections caused by the #Delta #variant.

Study evaluating 29 patients with symptoms that persisted for at least 4 weeks after #COVID19 showed:

-had reported fatigue, muscle pain, dyspnea, inappropriate tachycardia, and low-grade fever
-previous #COVID19 was mild in 55% of the cases
-13 patients (45%) had positive plasma RT-PCR results and 51% were positive in at least one RT-PCR sample (plasma, urine, or stool)
-18 patients (62%) received antiviral treatment.
Conclusion: #COVID19 patients with persistent symptoms, 45% of them have detectable plasma #SARSCoV2 #RNA

A study applied Mendelian randomization including >3,000 blood proteins as exposures to identify potential biomarkers that may indicate risk for hospitalization or need for respiratory support or death due to #COVID19 found:
-Higher blood levels of 5 proteins associated with an increased risk of #hospitalization, need. of respiratory support or death due to #COVID19: GCNT4, CD207, RAB14, C1GALT1C1, & ABO.
-These findings implicate blood group markers & binding proteins in both #hospitalization, need for respiratory support & death.
-Higher levels of #endocannabinoid enzymes may increase the risk of #hospitalization.
