Discuss Treatment Options
NIH COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines for monoclonal antibodies provide clinicians with guidance on how to care for patients with COVID-19. Because clinical information about the optimal management of COVID-19 is evolving quickly, these guidelines are updated frequently.
Monoclonal antibodies have been shown to reduce COVID-19-related hospitalizations and deaths from any cause. See this NIH table of clinical trial data.
Shared decision making should include information about the FDA emergency use authorization. For more information about the limits of authorized use for these monoclonal antibody therapies, including information about viral variants and antiviral resistance, review the following (Updated May 14, 2021):
