Other Treatments Global Adoption
Casirivimab/imdevimab COVID-19 studies. Efficacy is variant dependent. In Vitro studies suggest a lack of efficacy for omicron [Liu, Sheward, Tatham, VanBlargan]. Monoclonal antibody use with variants can be associated with prolonged viral loads, clinical deterioration, and immune escape [Choudhary]. Recent:
Casirivimab/imdevimab has been officially adopted for early treatment in 16 countries. Submit updates/corrections.
