Therapeutic Options to Prevent Severe COVID-19 in Immunocompromised People

August 12, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for monoclonal antibodies to treat COVID-19 for certain patients. Monoclonal antibodies may be available through expanded access programs to treat COVID-19 for immunocompromised patients. However, the efficacy of use for immunocompromised patients is unclear.

During this COCA Call, presenters will discuss the FDA’s role in issuing EUAs for certain monoclonal antibodies, options for compassionate use, the process for ordering and distributing monoclonal antibodies, and current data on using monoclonal antibodies for both non-hospitalized and immunocompromised patients. Presenters will also cover preventing, diagnosing, and treating COVID-19 in immunocompromised patients, including the role of monoclonal antibodies, serologic testing, and potential third dose of COVID-19 vaccinations.
