ADH Resources on Monoclonal Antibodies

In November, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an Emergency Use Authorization to allow the use of monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients.


Physicians are encouraged to contact sites directly for additional information if they have patients who may benefit from this therapy and meet the criteria set by FDA and the entity administering the infusion.

ADH has created an informational flyer for physicians and their patients. Click here to download the Monoclonal Antibodies flyer in English and Spanish.
