Monoclonal Antibody Treatment
Monoclonal antibody therapy is an investigational medicine used for the treatment of COVID-19 in non-hospitalized adults and who are at high risk for developing severe COVID-19 symptoms or the need for hospitalization. Monoclonal antibody therapy is investigational because it is still being studied.
