KALAMAZOO, Mich., December 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) – OptiMed Health Partners offers monoclonal antibody infusion treatment for patients testing positive for the COVID-19 virus. Monoclonal antibodies are designed proteins that mimic the human immune system’s ability to fight off harmful viruses such as COVID-19. If you’ve tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, you may be eligible for a Monoclonal Antibody Infusion Treatment.
This treatment involves a one-time intravenous (IV) infusion and is designed to reduce the severity of the virus and shorten the symptoms in mild to moderate patients.
“Our patients value the fact that, here at OptiMed, we make every effort to make monoclonal antibody infusions against COVID-19 easily accessible in a timely manner”, says Jeff Lagonoy, PharmD., Clinical Pharmacist at OptiMed Specialty Pharmacy. “With these new therapies, there’s a limited time window that patients are eligible to receive care. We have a highly skilled multidisciplinary team that aims to piece together a care plan that is individualized and unique to every patient. Further, patients can now receive therapy in the comfort of their own home which provides convenience, and more importantly, reduces viral transmission within the community.”
