Regen-CoV is proven to help you battle Covid-19 symptoms
The COVID-19 Treatment received FDA Approval (Emergency use authorization EUA) in November of 2020. The Regen-CoV treatment has undergone multiple clinical testing trials by Regeneron. Regeneron reported 70 percent of patients who took Regen-CoV supported their immune system, leading to better recovery of Covid-19 symptoms.
Recently, the Regional Advisory and San Antonio University Health System has made claims that monoclonal antibody therapy is underused. Like University Hospital, we strive to spread awareness and access to Regen-CoV while preventing hospitalizations.
