What are Monoclonal Antibodies?

Monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful pathogens such as viruses, like SARS-CoV-2. 

 

And like other infectious organisms, SARS-CoV-2 can mutate over time, resulting in certain treatments not working against certain variants such as omicron. This is the case with these two treatments for which we’re making changes today.

What are the benefits?

This treatment can be helpful with assisting your immune system in overcoming the viral infection of Covid-19.

 

Monoclonal antibody therapy reduces deaths and hospitalizations in non-hospitalized patients with risk factors for severe disease progression.

The Monoclonal Antibody Treatment takes around 20-30 minutes. After treatment is administered, patients are monitored for one hour to ensure that they do not experience an allergic reaction or other adverse effect that requires medical attention. The whole process takes about 1-3 hours.
