What is a monoclonal antibody?

  • Category: News
  • Posted On:

Our bodies naturally make antibodies to fight off infections. Your body might not have the antibodies designed to recognize SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Monoclonal antibodies are lab-made antibodies that are targeted to fight a specific infection such as SARS-CoV-2. These antibodies are given to patients through an intravenous infusion. This direct infusion may help reduce your risk for hospitalization as a COVID-19 positive patient.
