What is Monoclonal Antibody Therapy?

Monoclonal antibodies are lab-produced molecules that can mimic the immune system’s ability to fight viruses and other harmful pathogens. The FDA has authorized the emergency use of monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of COVID-19 under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). This infusion therapy targets different parts of the COVID-19 virus and prevents it from bonding with cells in the body.
