Early Treatment with Monoclonal Antibodies

Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) are lab-made antibodies that act as substitutes for the ones our bodies naturally create to fight infections. Under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA), the FDA has authorized the use of several mAb treatments to help people with current COVID-19 infections who are at high risk. For some patients, mAb treatment can help reduce worsening symptoms and avoid hospitalization. mAb treatments may reduce the amount of virus in the body, leading to milder COVID-19 symptoms and quicker recovery.

How to Receive Monoclonal Antibody Treatment

Because many of us may not be familiar with the process for receiving COVID-19 monoclonal antibody treatments, here are the steps you can expect to follow:

  • Determine your Eligibility

    In order to receive treatment, you’ll need to find out if you are eligible for mAb. Talking to your doctor can help determine if you are a good candidate for the treatment. Treatment should be given as soon as possible after symptom onset.

  • Obtain a Doctor’s Order

    Once it has been determined that you’re eligible, you’ll need a physician’s order to receive mAb treatment. Your doctor or urgent care provider can determine if treatment at an infusion center or at home is best for you. Some infusion centers may also be able to provide you with a doctor’s order.

  • Schedule your Appointment

    After talking with your doctor, find an infusion center near you to schedule an appointment and fill out any necessary forms before your appointment. If home infusion is right for you, schedule your appointment with the service your doctor recommends.

  • Receive mAb Treatment

    At the infusion center, the mAb treatment will be given to you by IV. You can expect the treatment to last approximately one hour, though you’ll need to stay at the infusion center a little longer to monitor for any reactions post-treatment.

  • Monitor your Progress Post-Treatment

    The monoclonal antibodies you’ve received may help your body fight off the COVID-19 infection. You should continue to stay home and monitor your symptoms. Follow up with your doctor if your symptoms remain the same or worsen after mAb treatment.
