CPMC Continues Monoclonal Antibody Therapy Program
Cabinet Peaks Medical Center continues to offer the latest Monoclonal Antibody Therapy, Regen-COV. Regen-COV helps to quick start the immune system to build up antibodies to fight COVID -19. Monoclonal Antibody Therapy has been available at CPMC since January 2021, and this latest weapon in our arsenal is designed to help patients combat the current Delta variant of COVID-19.
Monoclonal Antibody Therapy is approved for people who have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19 who meet very specific medical criteria. Additionally, it was recently approved for use in people for post-exposure "prophylaxis" (i.e. preventively) for those who meet certain criteria. In either case, Regen-COV monoclonal antibody therapy is administered through a one-hour intravenous (IV) infusion which is followed by a required one-hour observation period during which time the patient must remain with the infusion nurse at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center.
This therapeutic service is a one-time treatment for patients. It has been known to lead to a better patient outcome and to help avoid hospitalization and severe illness for people with COVID-19.
