January 27, 2021 - MADISON, WV - Patients who are diagnosed with COVID-19 have a new treatment option at Boone Memorial Hospital. Monoclonal antibody treatments are available and becoming a key element in the fight against COVID-19.
Monoclonal antibodies are designed for patients newly diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, who have a high risk of developing complications and becoming seriously ill. Monoclonal antibodies are proteins created in a laboratory to mimic the human immune system. The treatment works by imitating natural defenses, instead of waiting for the body to mount its own response, and makes it harder for the coronavirus to infect human cells.
