MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY TREATMENT

Uintah Basin Healthcare began offering monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 patients on December 4, 2020. Currently, both monoclonal antibody therapies (Bamlanivimab – developed by Eli Lilly and Casirivimab/Imdevimab – developed by Regeneron) have been authorized under a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). Scientists have found that this intravenous drug may limit the amount of virus in the body for higher risk patients with COVID-19 who take the drug soon after symptom onset, with the goal of avoiding hospitalization.

The drugs are in limited supply and are monitored closely by hospital staff in coordination with Utah Hospital Association and Utah Department of Health. To learn if Monoclonal Antibody Treatment is right for you, talk with your doctor. A doctor’s order is required.
