The clinical trials showed that the therapy reduces the 70 percent risk of hospitalization and death in patients at high risk of developing severe illness due to COVID-19 infection. It also significantly decreased the disease progression within 28 days after treatment when compared to placebo. The therapy was carried out in mild and moderate patients suffering from COVID-19. However, we don't have actual efficacy data yet.
The treatment involves administering a mixture of casirivimab and imdevimab, which blocks the virus's attachment and entry into cells. The Monoclonal antibodies are artificially created in the lab, and the cocktail was used to treat former United States President Donald Trump.
