    Differential diagnosis of COVID-19 MESHD and/or influenza ( flu HGNC) at point of care is critical for efficient patient management and treatment for either of these diseases. Clinical performance of the BD Veritor System for Rapid Detection of SARS-CoV-2 & FluA+B (Veritor SARS-CoV-2/ Flu HGNC) triplex assay was characterized. The performance for SARS-CoV-2 detection was determined using two hundred and ninety-eight (298) specimens from patients reporting COVID-19 MESHD symptoms within 7 days from symptom onset (DSO) in comparison with Lyra(R) SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR Assay ( Lyra SARS-CoV-2 MESHD). The Veritor SARS-CoV-2/ Flu HGNC Assay met the FDA EUA acceptance criterion with 95% overall agreement for SARS-CoV-2 test when compared to Lyra SARS-CoV-2. The performance for Flu HGNC A and Flu HGNC B detection was determined using 75 influenza-positive and 40 influenza-negative retrospective specimens in comparison with the previously FDA cleared BD Veritor System for Rapid Detection of Flu HGNC A+B (Veritor Flu HGNC). The Veritor SARS-CoV-2/ Flu HGNC also demonstrated 100% agreement with the Veritor Flu HGNC.

    SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD has caused a lasting global pandemic costing millions of lives and untold additional costs. Understanding the immune response to SARS-CoV-2 has been one of the main challenges in the past year in order to decipher mechanisms of host responses and interpret disease pathogenesis. Comparatively little is known in regard to how the immune response against SARS-CoV-2 differs from other respiratory infections MESHD. In our study, we compare the peripheral blood immune signature from SARS-CoV-2 infected MESHD patients to patients hospitalized pre-pandemic with Influenza Virus or Respiratory Syncytial Virus MESHD (RSV). Our in-depth profiling indicates that the immune landscape in patients infected by SARS-CoV-2 is largely similar to patients hospitalized with Flu HGNC or RSV MESHD. Similarly, serum cytokine and chemokine expression patterns were largely overlapping. Unique to patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 who had the most critical clinical disease state were changes in the regulatory T cell (Treg) compartment. A Treg signature including increased frequency, activation status, and migration markers was correlated with the severity of COVID-19 MESHD disease. These findings are particularly relevant as Tregs are being discussed as a therapy to combat the severe inflammation MESHD seen in COVID-19 MESHD patients. Likewise, having defined the overlapping immune landscapes in SARS-CoV-2, existing knowledge of Flu HGNC and RSV infections MESHD could be leveraged to identify common treatment strategies.

    Efficient and accurate assays for the differential diagnosis of COVID-19 MESHD and/or influenza ( flu HGNC) could facilitate optimal treatment for both diseases. Diagnostic performance related to SARS-CoV-2 and Flu HGNC A/B detection was characterized for the BD SARS-CoV-2/ Flu HGNC for BD MAX System (MAX SARS-CoV-2/ Flu HGNC) multiplex assay in comparison with BD BioGx SARS-CoV-2 Reagents for BD MAX System ( BioGx SARS-CoV-2 MESHD) and the Cepheid Xpert(R) Xpress Flu HGNC/RSV (Xpert Flu HGNC). Two hundred and thirty-five nasopharyngeal specimens were obtained from external vendors. MAX SARS-CoV-2/ Flu HGNC had positive percent agreement (PPA) and negative percent agreement (NPA) values for SARS-CoV-2 and Flu HGNC A/B that met FDA-EUA acceptance criteria of >95%.
