Audio Recap: Timely Treatment for COVID-19

Hear expert insights on therapies under evaluation or authorized for the treatment of patients with COVID-19, including which antivirals to use and when, and how to operationalize administration of anti–SARS-CoV-2 monoclonal antibodies in the outpatient setting.
Lynora Saxinger, MD, FRCPC, CTropMed
Released: October 11, 2021

During this episode, Lynora Saxinger, MD, FRCPC, CTropMed, updates listeners on the latest Emergency Use Authorizations and guideline recommendations for optimal clinical management of COVID-19. Gain practical insights on patient identification, risk stratification, and treatment.

Key points include:

  • Treatment of COVID-19 can be broken into antiviral and immune-modulating therapies
    • Each agent should be used at the correct disease stage to maximize benefit
  • Antiviral medications and mAbs show the greatest promise early during COVID-19, before the host immune response is mounted
  • Passive immunization with mAbs can prevent infection and severe disease—and mortality—if given early to hospitalized persons
  • Operational challenges to using these medications exist, but given the epidemic of unvaccinated persons, these treatments become increasingly relevant to reduce burden on healthcare systems
