Monoclonal Antibody Therapies
The next step in the fight against COVID-19 is here.
What are Monoclonal Antibody Treatments?
Monoclonal antibody treatments are infused therapies proven safe and effective to the individuals most vulnerable to COVID-19. Amber Specialty Pharmacy offers two therapies available to individuals exposed to COVID-19, or who themselves have a confirmed case of COVID-19 and are at high risk.
REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) is an Emergency Use Authorized (EUA) infusion treatment, shown to be effective in keeping COVID-19 infected patients out of the hospital. The FDA adds that this therapy is not a substitution for the vaccine. REGEN-COV is not approved for those already in the hospital for COVID-related reasons.
Bamlanivimab + etesevimab is another EUA monoclonal antibody infusion available to help fight COVID-19. Each therapy has the same eligibility criteria, although bamlanivimab + etesevimab is not approved for use prior to a positive COVID-19 test.
How to Receive Therapy
Patients interested in receiving monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 need to contact a licensed practitioner for a prescription. Your healthcare provider will determine a) if you are eligible to receive this treatment and b) which therapy is appropriate for you.
The following forms should be printed, completed by your doctor, and faxed to Amber Specialty Pharmacy.
