Monoclonal antibody infusion
This a reminder that the FDA has approved for EUA (emergency use authorization) several monoclonal antibody treatments.
Please consider for your mild-to-moderate COVID19 patients that are not hospitalized – so they can get the antibodies early in their COVID course, have a milder form of the disease and avoid hospitalizations plus poor outcomes.
Attached is a sample from San Joaquin General Hospital – eligibility information, a referral form and patient/parents/caregivers fact sheets from Eli Lilly and Regeneron. An SJGH contact is at 209-468-6820.
