Monoclonal Antibody Therapy for COVID-19

Monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful pathogens such as viruses. REGEN-COV (casirivimab/imdevimab) and bamlanivimab/etesevimab are monoclonal antibody therapies specifically directed against the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, designed to block the virus’ attachment and entry into human cells.

Monoclonal antibody therapy may be effective in treating patients with mild or moderate COVID-19, preventing progression and severity of symptoms.  The FDA issued Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for this treatment for COVID-19 in patients with mild to moderate symptoms and that are high risk for progression to severe COVID-19 and/or hospitalization.  The FDA has also authorized the use of REGEN-COV for post-exposure prophylaxis (prevention) in people who have been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19. Prophylaxis with REGEN-COV is not a substitute for vaccination against COVID-19. Monoclonal antibodies are not authorized for use in hospitalized patients.
