Early treatment with monoclonal antibodies may prevent your high-risk COVID-19 patients from
progressing to more severe disease or hospitalization.
What are Monoclonal Antibodies?
Monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off
harmful viruses like SARS-CoV-2. Monoclonal antibodies attack the virus and reduce its ability to spread
through your body.
Does Treatment work?
Patient data from clinical trials showed that high-risk COVID-19 patients treated with monoclonal
antibodies had a 70% reduction in relative risk of progression to severe disease or hospitalization
compared to patients who did not receive monoclonal antibodies. The treatment is most effective when
given shortly after symptoms appear, so it is important to get tested and treated as soon as possible.
How are Monoclonal Antibodies given?
Monoclonal Antibodies are given into a vein by intravenous (iv) infusion. Antibodies maybe
administered only in settings where healthcare providers have immediate access to medications
to treat any reactions.
Who can get Monoclonal Antibody
Monoclonal antibody treatments may help people who:
• Have mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19
