      "That’s just part of aging": Long COVID symptoms are often overlooked in seniors

      Lifting his clothes, raising his arms, arranging items in his closet leave Bell short of breath and often trigger severe fatigue. He walks with a cane, only short distances. He's 50 pounds lighter than when the virus struck. Bell, 70, is among millions of older adults who have grappled with long COVID — a population that has received little attention even though research suggests seniors are more likely to develop the poorly understood condition than younger or middle-aged adults.

      Advances in Pancreatic Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

      Twenty years ago, getting a pancreatic cancer diagnosis was very often devastating. The cancer usually wasn’t caught until later stages, partly because the pancreas is tucked behind the stomach, making it hard to detect tumors. Plus, some of the warning signs — abdominal discomfort, back pain, unintended weight loss and fatigue — are easy to overlook or attribute to other conditions. And they often arise late in the game.

    11. Why do COVID-19 PCR and antigen tests produce different results?

      Why do COVID-19 PCR and antigen tests produce different results?

      COVID-19 tests are in greater demand than ever, and new data about the Omicron variant can make picking and using different types of tests confusing.  Molecular tests for COVID-19, like the 'RT-PCR' technology used by many laboratories — known as PCR tests — are widely considered the 'gold standard' for spotting the most infections caused by SARS-CoV-2.

      By comparison, 'antigen' or 'lateral flow' tests, which can be done at home and return faster results, are less sensitive than PCR tests, but could be useful for identifying cases when people are likely to be contagious. One review last year estimated rapid antigen tests might only detect on average 75% of cases that PCR tests can spot, with antigen tests performing best in symptomatic people within the first week of their disease.
