Covid-19 Monoclonal Antibody Treatment

To see if you qualify, please fill out this questionnaire - Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Screening<

What is monoclonal antibody treatment?

Monoclonal Antibody Treatment, also known as REGEN-COV, will supercharge the immune system with an antibody cocktail.

The treatment is available to anyone 12 and up, who are COVID positive, and are in the early days of getting a positive result, however it is also for those who are exposed to positive individuals and have a high risk of getting seriously ill.

How does monoclonal antibody treatment work?

The goal of this therapy is to help prevent hospitalizations, reduce viral loads and lessen symptom severity.

This type of therapy relies on monoclonal antibodies. These are antibodies that are similar to the ones your body would naturally make in response to infection. However, monoclonal antibodies are mass-produced in a laboratory and are designed to recognize a specific component of this virus — the spike protein on its outer shell.

By targeting the spike protein, these specific antibodies interfere with the virus’ ability to attach and gain entry into human cells. They give the immune system a leg up until it can mount its own response.

Monoclonal antibody treatment is available to individuals who:

  • Are high risk** for developing severe COVID-19 and
  • Have a positive COVID-19 test and have not yet been admitted to the hospital and
  • Are 12 years of age or older (and at least 88 pounds)

**High risk includes any of the following:

  • 65 years of age or older
  • Overweight (body mass index over 25)
  • Pregnancy
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
  • Weakened immune system
  • Currently receiving immunosuppressive treatment
  • Cardiovascular disease/hypertension
  • Chronic lung disease
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders
  • Medical-related technological dependence

**NOT ELIGIBLE

  • Patient’s who are hospitalized due to COVID-19
  • Patients who require oxygen therapy due to COVID-19
  • Patients who require an increase in baseline oxygen flow rate due to COVID-19 in those on chronic oxygen therapy due to underlying non-COVID-19 related comorbidity
