Regeneron was granted Emergency Use Authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat mild-to-moderate cases of COVID-19.

Clinical trials indicate that most of the treatments work most effectively for non-hospitalized patients in the early stages of COVID-19, according to The Summit Medical Group. 

Healthcare professionals currently administer the treatment through an IV. 

The Summit Medical Group said the treatment may be available as a preventive measure for individuals who reside in the same household as someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
