Who is the Monoclonal Antibody Treatment For and How is it Different From a COVID-19 vaccine?

According to a Combat COVID report from an official website of the United States government, “the monoclonal antibody treatment (mAb) may help people who:

  • Have a positive COVID-19 test, and had symptoms for 10 days or less
  • Are at high risk of getting more serious symptoms

The same report also added: “Some early evidence suggests that mAb treatment can reduce the amount of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19) in a person's system. This amount is known as viral load. Having a lower viral load means you may have milder symptoms thereby decreasing the likelihood of you needing to stay in the hospital.

What is a monoclonal antibody? According to an in debt article published by The National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology (NICB), “antibodies are proteins produced by the immune system that target a specific foreign object (antigen). They are called monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs) when they are produced by clones derived from a single parent cell. Monoclonal antibodies have a high affinity for their epitope, the specific site of the protein they bind to.

According to the North Carolina Department of Health in Human Services, “your body may not have antibodies designed to recognize a novel (or new) virus like SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Monoclonal antibodies, or mAbs, are made in a laboratory to fight a particular infection—in this case, SARS-CoV-2—and are given to patients directly with an infusion. That’s why mAb treatment may help patients who are at high risk for serious symptoms or having to stay in the hospital.

How is the mAb treatment for COVID-19 different from a COVID-19 vaccine? According to one Web MD article: “Monoclonal antibodies boost the immune system after you are already sick, speeding up your immune response to prevent COVID-19 from getting worse.” Another HHS.GOV source describes the difference as follows: “A vaccine triggers your body’s natural immune response, but can take weeks to develop enough antibodies and prevent some kinds of infection. Some vaccines for COVID-19 require two shots, so your body can develop its own immune response to the disease. But if you already have the virus, mAb treatment gives your body the antibodies it needs to protect itself.
