Monoclonal Antibody Treatment
A promising form of treatment for COVID-19 is what is known as “Monoclonal Antibody” treatment. If you or a loved one has contracted the virus or you are high risk and think you have been exposed to the virus, Monoclonal Antibody Therapy may help. This IV infusion may lessen the time you are sick, prevent hospitalization or death, and reduce ER visits for those affected.
What is Monoclonal Antibody treatment?
This type of therapy relies on monoclonal antibodies to help build up the immune system and build up antibodies naturally through an IV line so that the body doesn’t have to work as hard to fight off the infection. It helps to prime the immune system if you are exposed to COVID-19, and help it win the fight against COVID-19. It targets the spike protein and these specific antibodies interfere with the virus’ ability to attach and gain entry into human cells. It helps to boost the immune system until your body can mount up its own response.
Who is Eligible?
Only those who have contracted the virus or those who are high risk after a known exposure are currently eligible for this treatment. In order to qualify, you must submit documentation of a positive Covid test or proof of exposure and have had symptoms of the virus within the past 10 days.
