COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Therapy
An option that may prevent severe COVID symptoms
or hospitalization for high-risk patients.
If you test positive for COVID-19, we recommend that you:
- Speak with a health care provider about your health situation. Communicate with that HCP to learn about your treatment options. Many people don’t know that they could be eligible for antibody treatments.
- Ask if you’re at risk for developing serious COVID-19 symptoms and complications. If you have certain health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, are immunosuppressed, over the age of 55 with heart disease, or over the age of 65, you could be at risk for progressing to severe COVID 19. Antibody treatments are available for patients with mild to moderate COVID-19 with health conditions such as these.
- Ask if you might be a candidate for antibody treatments. Your HCP can tell you about the possible benefits and side effects of antibody treatment and help you decide if it may be right for you.
If you’re speaking with an HCP, here’s some know-before-you-go information:
- Antibody treatments should be given as soon as possible, and within 10 days of the start of symptoms.
- This treatment is administered via a one-time intravenous infusion. It’s usually given at an infusion center, clinic or hospital (but it’s not given to patients admitted to the hospital for COVID-19).
- While vaccines may prevent COVID-19, monoclonal antibody treatments could improve COVID-19 symptoms in certain people and help them stay out of the hospital.
- You may be able to help your immune system combat COVID-19 with a monoclonal antibody treatment.
