Monoclonal antibody therapy
My Concierge MD offers in-home IV monoclonal antibody therapy.

This approach is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the treatment of Covid-19.
What are monoclonal antibodies?
Monoclonal antibodies are proteins made by your body’s immune system. The IV infusion adds clout to your body’s natural antibodies, boosts the immune response, and tames the COVID virus. The treatment (also known as mAb) blocks the virus from entering your cells, limiting the amount of virus in the body.
The FDA authorized the treatment with monoclonal antibodies in 2020 with an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
The federal government and Healthcare providers still say the best defense against the severe Covid-19 is the COVID-19 vaccine.
Monoclonal antibody treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Note: Monoclonal antibodies may not work with future mutations. Current additional treatment options against the omicron variant include Paxlovid, sotrovimab, Veklury, imdevimab, bebtelovimab, (remdesivir), etesevimab, casirivimab, and molnupiravir.
Evusheld is authorized for pre-exposure prophylaxis (prevention) of COVID-19 in patients aged 12 and older.

How effective is monoclonal antibody treatment?
Prestigious medical magazine The New England Journal of Medicine posted clinical trial results that demonstrated monoclonal antibodies help avoid hospitalization rates and emergency room visits by reducing the viral load in the blood.
An independent study by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) confirmed that patients who received monoclonal antibodies had a reduced risk of hospitalization.
What happens during monoclonal antibody treatment?
Dr. Nazarian will come to your home or office and give the medicine to you using an IV solution that is injected directly into the vein.
Patients should allow two hours for the appointment, although the IV drip portion only lasts about 20 minutes. After the infusion, the doctor will observe you for about an hour making there is no allergic reaction to the medicine.
How long do monoclonal antibodies last?
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, monoclonal antibody treatments reduce Covid risks by almost 82% during the first month after infusion. Antibodies are elevated from two to eight months.
Are there side effects?
The injection can cause brief pain, as well as soreness, bruising, fever, nausea, low blood pressure, chills, bleeding, headache, and infection where it was administered. These side effects are brief and typically occur after 30-60 minutes after the infusion. If you are bothered by them or concerned call the doctor.
A less-common side effect that is extremely rare is an allergic reaction. This is called anaphylaxis and is characterized by a rash, tongue or lip swelling, as well as wheezing, low blood, and labored respiration.
Monoclonal antibody treatment cost?
