Monoclonal Antibody Therapeutics

​Revocation of FDA’s EUA for Bamlanivimab

The FDA has revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) for bamlanivimab, when administered alone, for the treatment of mild-to-moderate COVID-19 in adults and certain pediatric patients who are at high risk of disease progression or hospitalization. REGEN-COV as well as bamlanivimab and etesevimab (administered together) continue to be available under EUA. Learn More >> 


The FDA has issued Emergency Use Authorizations for two investigational monoclonal antibody treatments. These treatments have been authorized for patients with mild to moderate cases: those who have had symptoms for 10 days or less, who are 12 years and older, and who are at high risk for progressing to severe COVID-19 and/or hospitalization. This includes people who are 65 years old or older, and who have certain chronic medical conditions.
