They are used for many different kinds of diseases, including autoimmune diseases from Crohn’s disease to psoriasis and cancer therapy, according to FIU infectious disease specialist Dr. Aileen Marty. In terms of COVID-19, there are more than 40 different companies and varieties of monoclonal antibodies that different groups have developed to try and prevent disease from COVID-19. Monoclonal antibodies are man-made proteins that act like human antibodies in the immune system to fight off harmful pathogens such as viruses.

DeSantis says monoclonal antibodies have “saved thousands upon thousands upon thousands of people from having to be admitted into the hospital and there’s no question we’ve saved many lives as a result making these treatments accessible to people.” READ MORE: Tri-Rail Almost Back To Full Service, With More Options For Commuters
