What is Monoclonal Antibody Treatment?

The proteins that your body make to fight off a virus are called antibodies. Antibodies that are made in a lab are called monoclonal antibodies and they can behave a lot like the antibodies made naturally by your body. This helps you fight off covid-19 by assisting your body in keeping the amount off virus present in your system at a lower level. While studies are still ongoing, clinical trials have shown signs of this treatment being effective at decreasing hospitalizations.

Covid-19 Rapid Testing

The BD Veritor TM System for Rapid Detection of SARS-CoV-2 is now available to patients of HealthBridge. This rapid test may be more widely accepted for school, work and travel. We still encourage you to confirm directly with the source requiring your test results if this rapid test would satisfy their needs or if a PCR test is necessary.
